Robert G. Harman, 70, of South Williamsport died peacefully surrounded by family Sunday, Aug. 29, 2021 at UPMC Williamsport.
Born Nov. 20, 1950 in Williamsport, he was the son of the late Samuel J. and Alice M. (Andrews) Harman.
Bob earned a bachelor's degree in commercial science from Tiffin University in Ohio. He was employed at the Williamsport Hospital for over 25 years, working in Emergency and Operations Room admissions. During retirement, he worked part-time as a driver for NAPA Auto Parts.
A sports man through and through, Bob coached, watched, critiqued and cheered on many athletes from softball, to baseball, to basketball and beyond. For almost 25 years, he could be found on the sidelines at South Williamsport coaching the JV Girls' basketball team and assisting the Varsity team. Bob was a Philly Phanatic sports fan and also enjoyed UNC college basketball. His vibrant, social personality could make anyone smile. Bob was a member of South Williamsport United Methodist Church and could often be found out at several local organizations or enjoying a cold one at the Young Men's Republican Club.
Surviving are three children, Melissa Harman (Cheryl) of Hampton Beach, New Hampshire, Jamie Harman (David Zwolinski) of Pittsburgh and Michael Harman (Maddi Swoyer) of Montoursville; two granddaughters, Sophie-Marie and Remi James Harman; a special friend, Kelly Wrightson of South Williamsport; a sister, Rebecca Praster (Thomas) of Riegelsville; a niece and nephew and his beloved cat, Gigi.
