Elyria, Ohio | Age 77

Beloved Husband, father, Grandfather, Brother


Jerry John Harmon, born May 7, 1943, in Elyria, Ohio, went to be with Jesus on February 10, 2021, surrounded by his family.

Jerry graduated from Elyria High School in 1962 and was an award-winning track athlete.

When Jerry was younger, he loved taking his family camping at Lazy River in Pioneer, Ohio. He was so proud of his wife and children, and he beamed with pride every time he spoke of them.

Jerry was loved by many and will be missed dearly.

Jerry retired from Ridge Tool in 2008, after 36 years of employment. Jerry enjoyed his retirement and spent those years barbecuing for his family, going to baseball games, band performances, basketball games and other events that his children and grandchildren were involved in. Jerry's favorite hobby was bowling. He belonged to several leagues, and all of his bowling teammates became part of Jerrys family. Jerry enjoyed helping his wife with her businesses. He was so excited when he was able to vacation with his wife, son, and daughter-in-law in Florida. He loved going to Disney World and meeting his favorite friends, Chip and Dale.

Mr. Harmon is survived by his beloved wife, Jill Harmon of 55 years, his daughter, Debbie Beckwith (Doug Beahr) of Elyria, son, Jeff Harmon (Alison) of Elyria, son, Michael Harmon (Traci) of Elyria, the apples of his eye, his grandchildren, Emily Beckwith of Elyria, Sean Beckwith of Elyria, Ashley Harmon of Elyria, Carolyn Harmon of Mayfield, and Nicole Harmon of Mayfield, brother, Carl Harmon of Elyria, stepsister, Marianne Jalowiec (Lynn) of Grafton, brother-in-law, Jack Standen and many other friends and family.

Jerry was preceded in death by his mother, Priscilla Harmon (nee Vargo), his father, John Harmon, and his stepmother, Dede Harmon.

Donations can be made to AMF North Ridgeville Lanes in Jerry Harmon's name to help offset league fees for senior bowlers.

A graveside service will be held at 11:00am on Thursday, February 18, 2021, at Brookdale Cemetery, 41600 Oberlin Elyria Rd., Elyria, Ohio 44035. Jerrys daughter-in-law, Traci Harmon, will officiate.
