HARMON--Edward, of Tampa, Florida and Chautauqua, New York. Beloved husband of Ellen, devoted father of Jon (Cindy), Amy Snodgrass (Jeff) and Jill Fairman (Frank), and loving grandfather to his nine grandchildren, died on November 3rd at age 86. Originally from New York City, Ed was a WWII veteran, a graduate of New York University and a Principal of P.S. 79 in Queens, New York. A renaissance man, Ed had a multitude of interests. An educational innovator, he also had a lifelong involvement in music both as a performer and aficionado. His keen sense of humor was clearly illustrated in his decades long work as a cartoonist. Ed published four books and his editorial cartoons were regularly featured in the Chautauqua Daily. All who knew Ed will miss him, each in a different and special way, for he touched all who were lucky enough to be his friend. In lieu of flowers, donations would be appreciated to the Muscular Dystrophy Association: FSH Society, Inc., BBRI R353, 64 Grove Street, Watertown, MA 02472 USA.
