Harlan J.

Passed away January 17, 2011 in Plaza, Washington. Harlan was born February 16, 1954 in Libby, Montana to Don and Olga Howard. After high school, Harlan worked as a police officer for Libby before moving to Spokane in 1978 and joining the Spokane County Sheriff's Dept. It was during this time that Harlan met the light of his life, Kimberly Roellich. They married in 1980. He is survived by his wife Kim; daughter Samantha; and sons Cory and Marshall; brother Danny Howard; and sister Gayle Sausedo. While Harlan loved 30+ years of service to the Sheriff's Dept. he made sure his family, friends, and co-workers were his first priority in life. In his spare time, Harlan enjoyed boating, driving combine during harvest, working on his farm and the company of his dogs, birds and newly acquired "Donks." Harlan will be missed by everyone who knew him and will be remembered for his unparalleled sense of humor, his selfless nature, and his unprecedented devotion to his family. A memorial service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 22, at the Cheney Nazarene Church, 338 Betz Rd. in Cheney. Oh, and here's a little something Harlan knows that you do not...He's not left-handed. Memorial contributions may be made to the Sheriff's Chaplaincy, P.O. Box 18752, Spokane, WA 99208 in Harlan's memory. CHENEY FUNERAL CHAPEL, CHENEY, WA.
