I am heartbroken to hear of Harley's passing! I met Harley and Shelly when I was a very small child and I just fell in love with Harley. He was the most kind and generous man I knew. He never brushed me off like adults tend to do sometimes, he made sure to make me feel important (That was huge to 4 or 5 year old me). I often wondered throughout the years what had happened to Harley and Shelly but every now and then their names would pop up around town and I knew that they were alive and well. I will pray for Shelly and his family. They left a huge impression on my life. Rest easy Harley <3

I met Harley while working as a bartender in the Massillon area several years ago. He was always sharing stories and telling jokes to make us laugh. He was such a fun person to talk to. We shared fun times dancing to music on several occasions over the past few years and he could dance better than most. He was surprised when I would play several of his favorite songs on the jukebox for him. And yes, I still have several "Harley" bills he gave us. Our condolences to his family! He will be greatly missed!!

I met Harley (w/Shelly) so many years ago. He was so nice and very interesting. He was one of those people you never forget. I think his spirit will always be around. My deepest condolences go out to all his loved ones.
