Jacob Lindley "Jake" Harmon Obituary
JACOB (JAKE) LINDLEY HARMON Jake passed away in Bozeman, Montana on June 4, 2014 at the age of 92. Born in Milan, Missouri on September 15, 1921, Jake was the first child of Golda B. Harmon and Ernest L. Harmon. On September 24, 1923 his brother, Francis Leighton Harmon was born. Jake's early years were spent on his dad's farm helping with chores, trapping for income and living a farm kid's life. In 1942 he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and served in the South Pacific during World War II, achieving the rank of 2nd Lieutenant. After the War, he enrolled in Kansas City College of Osteopathy and Surgery, graduating from medical school in 1950. On June 10, 1948 Jake married Alice Elizabeth Futty and later became the father of Victoria Carol Harmon and Jeffrey Jay Harmon. Throughout his career, Jake practiced family medicine in Lakewood and Englewood, Colorado, until his retirement in 1992. He was a member of the American Osteopathic Association. Jake joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and enjoyed the many blessings that it brought into his life. On July 15, 1981 Jake married his second wife, Nancy B. Peery and became the beloved step-father, grandfather, and friend to her children and grandchildren. A year later he and Nancy were sealed together for time and all eternity in the Jordan River Temple. They moved from Littleton, Colorado to Hemet, California in 2001 to be closer to family. Throughout his life, Jake was steadfastly devoted to his family and to people who needed medical care. Jake was an avid golfer, fly fisherman, and a gourmet cook. He taught all of his children what they most wanted to know, and in his caring way, achieved an endearing status among them. For this reason, his earthly presence will be deeply missed. He is survived by his daughter, Victoria Carol Faeo of Wasilla, Alaska, his son, Jeffery Jay Harmon of Bozeman, Montana, his step-daughter, Janelle Brown of Temecula, California, his step-son, Donald Eyssen, of San Marcos, Texas, and his two grandsons, Skylar and Jordan Brown, his nephew, David L. Harmon, and his nieces, Pam Shippam, Janet Ross, and Cathy Romero. Jake was preceded in death by his wife, Nancy B. Harmon, brother, Francis Leighton Harmon, and niece, Carrie Harmon. A service and celebration of his life will be held in Hemet, California at the LDS Church at 1151 Park Avenue, San Jacinto, California 92583 on Monday May 16th at 11:00 am. Interment will follow at Riverside National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested a donation be made to the Parkinson's Disease Foundation.
