Our loving father, Darwin Elroy Harmon, passed away peacefully on Monday, July 3, 2017. Darwin was born July 8, 1936 to Elroy and Lucille Harmon in Mapleton, Utah. On November 23, 1960, Darwin married Lura Mae Merrill in the Salt Lake Temple and raised three beautiful daughters followed by nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.\r\n\r\nDarwin was dedicated to his family and church and enjoyed sharing the gospel. He cuddled and rocked each child and shared stories about his mission in Samoa and military service in Germany. He was a passionate man that loved to fix things and solve problems. He was known for being a personal math tutor and Mr. Fix anything. He fixed curling irons and vacuums, wired electrical outlets, hung shelves and installed garage door key pads. He gave lessons on how to change oil, break-pads, and tires. Darwin was a quiet, sensitive man with a jovial, boisterous laugh that could be heard from miles away. He loved spending time with his family and was always available for a personal lunch date. Darwin showed his love by baking his famous pumpkin chocolate-chip cookies for all his favorite people. He passed on his wisdom that “everything can be fixed” and left his family with all the right tools and knowledge to live on.\r\n\r\nHe is survived by his 3 daughters: Melinda Wankier (Channing), Jill Rasmussen, Tara Marx (Dustin); nine grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; brothers and sisters, Sherril Harmon (Irene), LaRue Reay (George), Tom Harmon (Karen), Wayne Harmon (Rita), Mozelle Szymanski (Lon), Dean Harmon (Marilyn), OJ Harmon (Janice), and Joyce Livingston (Gary).\r\n\r\nA funeral service will be held Friday, July 7 at 11:00 a.m. at the LDS Church located at 6770 South 500 East, Midvale, Utah.
