Roger “Rod” Harmon, April 2, 1927 to May 22, 2020
[Editor: Our local Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District’s Harmon Swim Center on Scholls Ferry Road was named after the highly esteemed long-time coach Rod Harmon. He recently died at age 93.]
Rod Harman passed away at the age of 93, May 22, 2020. Rod was preceded in death by his wife, Barbara; and daughter, Karen.
Rod had an immense passion for working with students and athletes and dedicated his life to serving others.
Rod was recently featured in The Oregonian which includes many of the accomplishments he achieved in his 93 years of life.
In honor of Rod’s memory, and to continue his legacy, the family has established the Coach Rod Harman Memorial Scholarship Fund on GoFundMe. This fund will bestow scholarships to graduating student athletes at Beaverton, Aloha and Southridge High Schools. The family hopes to bless many passionate and dedicated student athletes for years to come, just like Rod would want!
Rod is survived by his sons, Mark (Rhonda) Harman, Scott Harman and Brian (Lucy) Roark; and his seven grandchildren, Tyler, Trevor, Tori, Alex, Evan, Pagie and Max.
Due to the Pandemic, a celebration of life for Rod will be scheduled at a later time.
