Jimmy was born in Phillipsburg, Kentucky, on December 15, 1919, to the late Eursley Kelly Harmon and the late Emma Lyons Harmon. He proudly served our country in the U. S. Army Air Corps. as a Staff Sergeant stationed at Cochran Field in Macon during World War II. While in Macon, Jimmy met and married the love of his life, Claudia Salter. The majority of his life was spent in Peach County where he loved farming, riding horses, and always growing enough produce to share with family and friends every year. Jimmy re-built and added on to their original farmhouse to make it a beautiful home for his wife and family. Through the years, he enjoyed woodworking and being in his workshop. Many of his family members are delighted to have pieces of furniture that he carefully crafted especially for each one.
Mr. Harmon was a long-time member and Deacon of Tharpe Memorial Baptist Church which later became Cross Point Baptist Church. He was also a member of the Joyful Seniors Sunday School Class and enjoyed receiving greeting cards from them once his health kept him at home on Sundays.
He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Claudia Salter Harmon; his daughter, Claudia Gail Hill; a grandson, Andy Matthews; his brothers, Vernon Harmon, Alford Harmon, and Shelby Harmon; and his sister, Hazel Spaulding.
Left to cherish the memories they made with Jimmy are his daughter, Wanda Guynn (Bobby) of High Point, North Carolina; his sons, Jimmy Harmon, Jr. (Debra) and David Harmon, both of Eatonton; his son-in-law, Phillip Hill of Eatonton; nine grandchildren; fifteen great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren (and one on-the-way); his brother, Ronnie Harmon of Lebanon, Kentucky; and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews.
Condolences for the family may be left in the online guestbook at www.watsonhunt.com. Watson-Hunt Funeral Home has been entrusted with the arrangements.

I remember Jimmy Harmon when I used to go to Tharpe. Always loved him. He was a wonderful man. I had stopped and seen him a few times after I had left. We loved him and he will be missed.
