George Borber Harmer was born on January 1, 1949, into the union of Mr. Jacob Harmer and Sarah Harmer in Zwedru Grand County. George was the second born to Jacob and Sarah amongst James Harmer. George started his education at the Saint Philomina School in Zwedru, at the age of five. George ended his education at the 7th grade level due to child labor he endured from his aunt.
George got his first job with the R.C. Saw Mill Company as a power saw operator at the Liberia and Ivory Coast Boarder, where he remained until the Civil War in 1989, in Liberia. George fled the Civil War with the entire family to the Ivory Coast, where they stayed and labored as refugees until they were repatriated to Amarillo, Texas in 2004. His last occupation was at the Baptist Community Services as a house keeper, until the cold hands of death took him.
George was a good man, a family man. His smile would light up a dark room. You all will miss him, but we lost a daddy and a husband. May your soul rest in peace in the good hands of Jesus until we meet again.
He is preceded in death by his parents: Jacob and Sarah Harmer, children: Evon Harmer and Nyonomu Ziah Harmer, and brother: James Harmer.
He is survived by his wife: Sucy Harmer, children: George Harmer, Jr., Prince Harmer, Princess Harmer, Decontee Dru Harmer, Decontee Dialette Harmer, Patience Harmer, stepchildren: William Boduo, Fred Boduo, and Charles Saydee, forty-seven grandchildren, fifteen great grandchildren, siblings: Edith Harmer, Mary Harmer, Doebo Harmer, Edward Taily, Phillip Harmer, Victor Harmer, and Ninneh Harmer.
