Mark Vance Harmon

June 10, 1965 ~ April 27, 2020 (age 54)



Mark Vance Harmon, 54, of Bunker Hill stepped from this earth into the arms of his Heavenly Father on Monday, April 27, 2020.

Mark was born June 10, 1965 in Peru, Indiana to James Harmon and Mary (Lippold) Bennett. He married Carlene (Finster) Harmon on February 16, 1991. They enjoyed 29 years together. Mark was an amazing husband to Carlene.

He is survived by his parents Stan and Mary Bennett of Bunker Hill, his son, whom he adored, David (Sadie) also of Bunker Hill, brother Jay (Valerie) of Iowa, and sister Susan (Ben) Church of Peru along with several nieces and nephews and two great nephews. Mark also held a very special place in his heart for his “chosen” son Alex Meyers (Carol) and family of Kokomo, IN. Mark was the picture of what a father should be, hard-working, always dedicated to his Lord Jesus Christ, his family and friends. He was preceded in death by his father and grandparents Omer and Alice Lippold Lippold.

Mark graduated from Maconaquah High School in 1983 and then Northwestern Business College of Lima, Ohio, now known as UNOH. He held degrees in Business as well as Diesel/Auto Mechanics. He was self-employed as a semi-driver for TD Walker Trucking as well as being an active farmer.

He was a 10 year 4-H member and actively involved as an adult. Mark was also an FFA member in high school. For the last several years Mark has been active in the Brethren Way of Christ. He attended the Peru Church of the Brethren.

A celebration of Mark’s life will be at a later date.  Contributions may be made to the Peru Church of the Brethren, 134 E. 5th St, Peru, IN 46970, notation Mark Harmon Memorial Brethren Way of Christ.
