Robert "Mike" Harbour, 68, a preacher, husband, and father with many friends around the country and the world, went to his eternal reward on Saturday, April 10, 2021, following a sudden illness. He was born in Huntington, W.V., on March 18, 1953, to Sylvester and Iona Harbour. His wife, Mary Jo, survives.
Mike grew up in Weston, Ohio, and graduated from Otsego High School. After high school, he worked at the Campbell Soup Company for 22 years. The family moved to Wauseon in 1980, the same year Mike became a Christian, which led to his true calling for his life. He began preaching the Gospel and teaching others about Jesus, which he continued for the rest of his earthly life. He began preaching full-time in 1995 at Archbold First Church of Christ, and helped begin Christ's Church in Wauseon in 2001. His preaching, humor, and caring attitude gave him the opportunity to minister to thousands in the United States and to others through international humanitarian work.
Also surviving are three children, Melissa (Keith), Michael (Michelle), and Marshall (Brenna); 11 grandchildren; and two sisters, Kathy Fry and Gloria Wicker. They all will miss him very much but are thankful that he has fought the good fight, finished the course, and kept the faith.
Mike was preceded in death by his sister, Wanda Baylan.
A funeral service will be held 11 a.m. Saturday, April 17, 2021, at Christ's Church in Wauseon.
Visitation will be 5-8 p.m. Friday, April 16, 2021 at the church.
