Harlan was born in San Francisco to parents Earl King and Mary Mortijia King. The family moved to Concord, CA when he was four. He graduated from Mt. Diablo High School in 1959, then attended UC Berkeley, graduating in 1964 with a major in economics. Shortly thereafter he joined the Peace Corps, where he served for two years in Colombia. He resumed his education upon returning home, earning a master's degree, again in economics at UC Berkeley. His first assignment with the Federal Government was with the US Dept. of Labor in California. He then moved to Washington, DC where he began his 35-year career with the Dept. of Commerce as an International Economist with the Bureau of Economic Analysis. Harlan is survived by his wife of 24 years, Ann, his daughter, Stephanie King, of Arlington, VA, his son, Daniel and daughter-in-law Erika King, of Alexandria, VA, stepsons, Steven Bell, of Middleburg, VA, and Jeffrey Bell, of Sacramento, and two grandsons, Hugo and Euan Bell. He was predeceased by his parents and brother, William King. In retirement, Harlan spent his time traveling the world with Ann, fly fishing, sampling the California wines, and visiting friends and family all over the country. He continued his Spanish language fluency as part of a weekly class for many years, and hosted a men's book group centered around serious political and economic issues of the day. He was active with Trinity Episcopal Cathedral Church, Loaves & Fishes, Renaissance Society and Cal Trout. A service is planned for May 12 at 1 PM at Trinity Cathedral, 2620 Capitol Ave, Sacramento. In lieu of flowers, donations in Harlan's name may be made to or to Trinity Episcopal Cathedral. Arrangements by W.F. Gormley & Sons.
