Nicholas "Boo" Sloan Harmon
October 31, 1999 – November 5, 2019
PELL CITY - Nicholas Sloan Harmon was born on October 31, 1999 – thus the nickname “Boo”. He attended Pell City schools and graduated from Pell City High School. He also attended Jefferson State Community College and was planning to transfer to Auburn University in 2020 to specialize in the field of aviation. Sloan celebrated his 20th birthday just days before his untimely death. In the two decades in which he lived, he accomplished more than many people three times his age. In his teenage years, Sloan joined the Cheaha Mountain Bike Racing Team and practiced diligently to become the best he could be. He and his teammates won the Alabama State Championship and he finished 5th in his category. Sloan was a member of the PCHS Wrestling Team. In his senior year, he qualified for the Class 6A state championship and was one of the top 16 wrestlers in his weight classification in Alabama. With each step of his wrestling career, he congratulated and loved his team members and remained humble with his victories. While in high school – in addition to wrestling – Sloan was a member of JROTC and attended Jefferson State Community College. He then worked at the St. Clair County Airport doing whatever task was required. His love for aviation grew immensely. Sloan was a few flights away from earning his private pilot’s license. After graduation from high school and wanting to serve his beloved country, he followed in the footsteps of his father and brother. Sloan joined the United States Air Force and graduated with honors from the Tactical Aircraft Maintenance Technical School. As an Airman 1st Class with the 117th Air Refueling Wing’s Aircraft Maintenance Squadron of the Alabama Air National Guard in Birmingham, Alabama. He was honored and proud to serve as a KC-135 crew chief. The greatest gift which was given Sloan was the gift of Jesus Christ at an early life. He led a Christian life and was an example to all that knew him. A tremendous consolation to his family is knowing that he was embraced by his Savior and was escorted personally through the Golden Gates of Heaven. Sloan left this earthly life on Tuesday, November 5, 2019. He is preceded in death by his great-grandparents, Marion & Geraldine Wood, Alton & Matilee Dorough, Eldred & Bessie Harmon, William & Vera Sloan.

I am the grandmother of Nick's friend, Connor Ely. We are all so sorry and sickened by Nick's untimely death and are lifting you up to our Savior and Lord during this time and the coming days. I would like to share a special song with you that I hope will bring you some comfort. It is a song by Zach Williams, a Christian singer. It is called "Face to Face". When you have an opportunity I hope you will listen to it, as it has been very meaningful to us as we lost a dear friend suddenly and unexpectedly on Sunday, November 3rd, and we have found such comfort in listening to it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=23rNa6yoIHg

We, at PT Orthodontics, Pell City always loved seeing Sloan come into our office. He always had a smile on his face and was so polite and courteous to us all. We appreciate and care dearly for his family and our deepest sympathy is extended to them. God greatly give you strength and comfort in knowing that Sloan is with the One who loved him more than mortal man and was waiting to greet him as he passed through the gates of Heaven. Sloan was the epitome of "No great love hath man than that he would lay down his life for a friend." Sloan's goal was to serve his country to protect our freedom. We know God is enjoying Sloan!
