Obituary

 Our beloved Rodney G. Harma, 85, died on Tuesday, February 2, 2021 at Cabinet Peaks Medical Center in Libby.  He was born on February 10, 1935 at New Leipzig, North Dakota to John and Vieona Harma. 

Rodney entered the US Army June of 1957 and served until being honorably discharged in June 1959. He married Elaine and they were married for 45 years until she passed away.  He was a competitive shooter, started as a member of the 6th Army Rifle Team. He was an active member of Cabinet Rifle and Pistol Association, an active shooting club in Libby. He was also a member of the Troy Shooting Club and participated in action steel shooting.  He was eager to advise those who needed shooting advice either by explaining or by actual shooting practice.  He was the last surviving member of the original Libby Rod and Gun Club.  He could be found at the Libby Shooting Range punching small groups of holes in targets and in the backyard eating watermelon. 

Rodney volunteered as bingo caller at Libby Care Center and delivered meals for the Senior Center.  He was a master electrician. He was a long standing member of Faith Bible Church and outstanding Christian man.  There were very few Taco Tuesdays he missed at Burger Express.  He was always “wonderful” when asked, had an infectious laugh, and he was loved by all.  He was preceded in death by his wife Elaine, his parents, brother George Harma and a sister Thelma.

Survivors include his children John Harma (Jerri), Sara Shuck (Herb), and Alan Dunn (Beth), all of Libby; sisters Irene Regh (Jim); Jeanne Anglin (Bill); many grandchildren and great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews and lifelong friends.
