John Matthew Harada, age 71, passed away on Tuesday, November 5, 2019. He was born on December 11, 1947 in Tokyo, Japan, but was a resident of Grand Blanc for most of his life. John owned and operated Harada and Associates for 48 years. He was loved by so many people, and he will be dearly missed by all who were lucky enough to be blessed by his charismatic presence. John never met a stranger, and his personality would light up an entire room; he truly was one of a kind.

He loved being outdoors, woodworking, fishing, and spending time at his cottage in Sugar Springs Gladwin. John will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Rhonda; children: Camille Hoffman, Rachelle Harada, Justin (Carol Westesson) Harada, Christal (David) Rembowski, Stacy (Jackson) Luce, and Lindsey Grover; grandchildren: Westley, Steven, Timothy, John, Robert, Gage, Tyler, Hannah, Carolyn, Dylan, and Brighton.

John was a dear friend years ago when we had a group of us that had coffee everyday at the Big Boy. He was always in a good mood and would do anything for a friend.
