Jim Harmuth of Avery


 Jim Harmuth was born on August 21, 1938 in Hutchinson, Kansas.   He passed peacefully at his Avery home on September 17, 2020, with his immediate family at his side.

   Jim served in the Marine Corps for four years and was honorably discharged as a corporal in 1959. He was certainly proud to serve his country.

   After serving in the Corp his employment included law enforcement and then as an Ironworker for 35 years until his retirement as a foreman.

   Jim worked 3 jobs while raising four of his children, Eddie, Stephen, Jimmy lane, Tiffany Whitear and Jasin Jacobson.  He loved his children, dog Daisy and his late beer drinking dog Gibbs.

   Jims first sight of Sue Jacobson was in a bar in Walnut Creek. At that moment it was " love at first sight" for both of them.

   He immediately courted Sue as they fell in love and married on August 30, 1990 on a cruise ship to Alaska. Jim and Sue enjoyed travel, card games, camping and spending time with friends.

   He also loved restoring his 1949 Mercury and then joined the Sierra Angels Car Club.

   Jim always smiled when Sue quoted "He was my best 30 years:  He enjoyed playing cards with his mother-in-law as she cheated to keep him on his toes.

   Jim bought property in Avery in 1972 where he built a shop.  He moved to Avery in 1988 when he met Sue. They lived in the shop while building their house. He bought a house in Hawaii because he loved the islands so much.

   Jim has touched so many lives and will be missed.  He is survived by his adoring wife Sue, brother Russ (Shirley) and sons Ed (Kathy), Jimmy and Jasin (Camille); several grandchildren and great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

   Jim is joined with his mother, father, brother Bobby and daughter Tiffany, whom was the "light" in his life.

   Mr. Harmuth services will be given tribute by the Marine Corp Honor Guard detail at the Murphys Veterans Memorial Park (across from Murphys Park) on October 25, 2020 at 11:30 AM.
