Harlan was an amazing, friendly man known for his smiles, jokes, stubbornness, hard work and generosity. Harlan enjoyed spending time with his family & friends, fishing, boating, traveling in his RV, tinkering around in his backyard, eating popcorn and ice cream, playing original Nintendo, his morning coffee shop visits, and sitting outside his house greeting all those that passed by.

Harlan is survived and loved by so many including his wife, Margaret; his children, William, David, Michael, Robin, Dawn, Holly and Jaime; his 13 grandchildren, Aaron, Robert, Christopher, Daniel, Morgan, Brittany, Tyler, Casey, Ashley, Amber, Aidan, Elliot and Addilyn; his brother Donald and sisters, Arlene and Marcelene.

I am sorry for your family's loss. I can tell you that I worked with Harlan at FPUD during the summer months while in high school. Harlan was everything his obituary described. I was down in Fallbrook several times over the past few years to visit my declining mom. I actually looked up Harlan's name in the phone book and wanted to go visit him, but I figured he probably wouldn't have remembered me too much. Anyway, I have great memories of him, and he always made himself available to help me with car troubles even after work hours. Sincerely, Tom Bearden
