George "Honest George" Harmon
George Floyd Harmon passed away peaceful, at his residence in Salisbury, Maryland surrounded by his family on April 26, 2018. He was born July 6, 1941 in Nelsonia, Virginia to the late Floyd and Harriet Harmon.
George was raised in a Christian home, so it was only natural that he join the family's church, Macedonia Baptist Church in Bloxom, Virginia. He was an active youth in church singing in the Youth Choir and also became a member of the Young Adult Ushers. When George got older, he relocated to Pocomoke, Maryland, but he never forgot his church roots. Whenever Macedonia had a special day, he would participate monetarily if he could not attend in person. In Pocomoke, he became a member of St. John A.M.E. Church, 622 Cedar Street. It didn't take long for him to pick up his old ways, singing in the Men's Choir, sometimes even singing in the Women's choir. Two of his favorite songs were "If you Can't Help Me" and " Two Wings." George loved serving the Lord. He was very active, filling in wherever he could; he would even drive the church bus. Once he borrowed his company's truck and drove to the main land of Virginia to pick up new church pews. However, these works did not go unnoticed, for he later became a Trustee. On June 25, 2017, St John A.M.E. Church sponsored a Truckers Day Celebration honoring him with a church resolution recognizing him as a "Man of God" and a plaque for dedicated Trustee services.
In Pocomoke George met, fell in love, and married Dollie Mae Fisher. They were married for forty-three years until her death on November 21, 2015.
George was educated in the Accomack County Public School system and received a High School Diploma from Mary N. Smith High. After high school, he worked in area poultry plants and the Campbell Soup Company in Salisbury. Later George found his passion that lasted over fifty years. He became a "Truck Driver" and that's when he coined the CB handle, "Honest George." His motto was, " If it had four wheels and a steering wheel, he could drive it.”
George was a member of Unionville Masonic Lodge #45 F. & A. M. Pocomoke, Maryland and a 32nd degree brother of King David Consistory #284 Salisbury, Maryland.
George was preceded death by his paternal grandparents, Charles and Susie Harmon; maternal grandparents, William and Ruth Watson; parents, Floyd and Harriet Harmon; two sisters, Carmilla Clark and Ruth Brown; his loving wife, Dollie Mae Fisher; five aunts and two uncles, Francis Justis, Estella Davis, Madeline Washington, Nancy Brown, Mary Williamson, William Watson Jr., and George Philmore Watson.
He leaves to cherish loving memories with one brother, Larry Harmon of Springdale, MD; one son, Kerry Roger White of Parksley, VA; two stepsons, Virgil Fisher of Rehobeth Beach, DE and Edward Johnson of Crisfield, MD; stepdaughter, Tina Holden of Atlanta, GA; six brothers-in-law; three sisters-in-law; and a host of nieces, nephew, cousins, other relatives, and friends.
