Captain Martin Milton Harmon
Sunrise: September 3, 1933 - Sunset: January 21, 2016

It is with deep sadness that we, the Harmon, Brown, Crayton, Monger, Crenshaw, Sawyer, Harris, Pierre, and Wilson families announce the passing of our beloved Husband, Father, Grandpa, Uncle, Cousin and Friend. He is dwelling in the secret place of the Most High God. At 3:48pm, on Thursday, January 21, 2016, at Carolina Medical Center - Concord, North Carolina, our beloved transitioned from this life into God’s loving arms. May God be praised.

The son of Mercy Harmon and Jean Brown, Captain Harmon was destined for aviation greatness. After leaving Sinoe County as a teenager, he moved to Monrovia to seek better opportunities. He discovered his technical abilities, and with a Liberian Government Scholarship, he traveled to the United States of America to study aviation science at the Ross School of Aviation in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

After successfully earning his wings from Ross School of Aviation, he returned to Liberia and was employed at Liberia National Airlines (LNA) as the first Liberian trained commercial airline pilot. When LNA changed to Air Liberia, he continued his aviation career with Air Liberia and worked many years as Pilot - and he excelled. As an experienced pilot with Air Liberia, he rose to the rank of Captain and finally to Managing Director.  Later, Captain Harmon’s love of aviation/travel was the driving force to his entrepreneurship venture as the owner of a Travel Agency in Monrovia, Liberia.

Although we grieve his loss, we honor him for his many accomplishments and a full life. Captain Harmon was a passionate patriot of Liberia. He loved his God, his Country, and his family.

Captain leaves many to mourn his passing: his wife, Mrs. Isetta Harmon; Rev. Frances Mason Harmon (former wife), Mrs. Lottie Gardiner Harmon (deceased); Mrs. Gracelia Howard; His children: Gerald Harmon (deceased), Richard Wesley Harmon(Edith Harmon), Martin Milton Harmon Jr.(deceased), Willie Harmon (Danielette Harmon,deceased), Diane Harmon Pierre (Samuel Pierre), Winder Harmon (Evangeline Teta Harmon), Owen Harmon (Tocee Harmon) and Martina Harmon Wilson (Ricardo Wilson), Joydine R.
