Harland will be remembered for his smile, laugh and easy going manner, he had a unique way of serving others anywhere he saw a need. In the church we often talk about the spiritual gifts that God bestows on people, and truly the spiritual gift God gave Harland was that he was always willing to serve others to the very best of his ability. He especially enjoyed working at the skating rink with the kids, also helping seniors at both Parkview Gardens and the Warrensburg Senior Center was near and dear to his heart.
He is survived by his wife Betty, one daughter Sherry Elliott and husband David of Ioina, Missouri, exchange students Sebi Mussemann and Emma Honig from Amberg, Germany, one brother Paul Osborne and wife Judy of Warrensburg, as well as many nieces and nephews.
