Jerry Harman

April 11, 1958 –April 28, 2024

Jerry Wayne Harman,s a beacon of resilience, dedication, and kindness, passed away Sunday, April 28, 2024. Born on April 11, 1958, in Bluefield, W.V., he spent his early years in his hometown before making Webb City his forever home. Jerry was a man of Christian faith, and his life was a living testament to the Bible verse, Ephesians 4:32: “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” His thoughtful nature and supportive spirit made him a cherished presence to those fortunate enough to know him.

Jerry held various careers before retiring from Cardinal Scales in 2020. He was a man who valued hard work and perseverance, but never let it overshadow his love for his family, which mattered most to him. His love for fishing, reading, watching Westerns, and spending quality time with his loved ones painted the picture of a man content with life’s simplest pleasures.

Jerry is survived by his devoted wife of 40 years, Susan Harman; his loving daughters, Stacy (Shannon) Moss and Stephanie (Alex) Frizzo; his siblings, Linda Smeltzer, Richard Harmon, Mary (Timothy) Schweigel, and Tammy Ash; and his beloved grandchildren, John and Anna Frizzo. He was preceded in death by his parents, Clarence and Evelyn Harman, and his brothers, Eugene and Johnny Harman.

A visitation will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, May 3, 2024, at Simpson Funeral Home. The celebration of Jerry’s life will continue at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 4, 2024, at the same location. A graveside service will follow at Mt Hope Cemetery.
