Interment will follow at Tulip Cemetery near Athens, LA. The family will receive friends at the church on Friday from 1-2, prior to the service. Jimmy was born March 17, 1948, in Homer, LA, to Ernie J. White and Steve Harmon, Jr. He entered into rest on Tuesday, March 15, 2022, in Minden, LA. Jimmy served his country in the Army Reserves. Family gatherings were important to him and he enjoyed making memories with his children and grandchildren. Jimmy was a faithful Mason with the Masonic Lodge #136 of Athens. He was a people person meeting new friends wherever he went and no matter where he was, he could find someone he already knew or was a relative. Jimmy adored his grandchildren and bragged on them every chance he got. As a young man while deer hunting he acquired the handle "Chubby Buddy" in which he was referred to for the rest of his life. Jimmy Harmon was preceded in death by his maternal and paternal grandparents; his parents; and a nephew, Lucas Jennings Harmon. He is survived by his loving wife of 49 years, Sarah Stacks Harmon; a daughter, Trudy Hays and husband Clayton of Homer, LA; a son, Seth Allen Harmon and wife Jessica of Minden, LA; a brother, Mickey Harmon of Athens, LA; five grandchildren, Hayden Harmon, Hallie Harmon, Jewelyn Hays, Mary Katherine Hays and Sarabeth Hays; a nephew, Marcus Harmon; a niece, Nancy Blanchard; along with other relatives and plenty of friends. Pallbearers will be Ryan Harmon, Sam Dowies, Keith Cook, Marcus Harmon, Andy Smock, and Jerry Abercrombie. Honorary pallbearers will be Danny Henley and Buzzy Buckner. A special "Thank You," to Presbyterian Village, Minden Medical, Fresenius Dialysis Center, Dr. Clifton Salmon, Dr. William Haynie, and OTA Carolyn Brownmiller for their loving care and compassion. In lieu of flowers honoring Jimmy, his family suggests memorials be made to St. Jude or donor's choice.
