Harley H. King

December 26, 1931-August 31,2020

Harley H. King, age 88, husband, father, grandfather, and great- grandfather was surrounded by his family when he died on August 31, 2020 at his home in Manson, Washington.  A man of faith, Harley walked with Jesus Christ throughout his life.  The love God showed him was reflected in Harley’s love for his family and friends.  He is now with family and friends that went on before him.  A graveside service will be held at Old Leavenworth North Road Cemetery in Leavenworth, Washington.

Harley was born in Woodson, Arkansas on December 26, 1931 to William and Armada King; he was second to the youngest of 10 children. Harley graduated from Leavenworth High School in Washington in 1949 and joined the Navy where he got his start in the electronics field.  Earning a scholarship to University of Washington, and working full-time through school, Harley graduated with a bachelor’s degree in business administration in 1957.

Harley’s diversified career covered electronic manufacturing, long haul truck driving, custom home building, and commercial/industrial construction.

Harley loved his eight years in St Lucia, West Indies where he ran an electronic manufacturing plant, was integral in island politics and economic development, and made lifelong friends in a loving church community.

After retirement, Harley and his wife Lanora traveled the continent in an RV spending time with family and making many new friends. Over those 15 years, they traveled from Canada to Mexico and many points from east to west.

Family was an important part of Harley’s life. Harley and Lanora were integral in planning the King/Brown family reunion for almost three decades.

He loved the island life, boating, snow skiing, and helping anyone who had a construction project to be done.

Harley is survived by his wife Lanora; children Shannon, Terri, her husband Michael, and Dale; grandchildren Ashlee, Jordan, Adrian, Alexa, Colin, Hailee, Adiel, Makayla, Lydia, Benjamin, Jaielle, Joel, and Anna; and great-grandchildren Dylan, Brielle, Baine, Bekah, Jett, and Jemma. Survivors also include his brothers Sam and Leroy and many nieces and nephews.
