John Elliott Harned Sr.

July 1, 1946 — May 12, 2022

Mr. John Elliott Harned Sr., age 75, lifetime Herrickville resident, passed away on Thursday, May 12, 2022, at the Guthrie Towanda Skilled Nursing Unit.


          John was born on July 1, 1946, in Sayre, PA, a son of the late Bernard B. & Helen Elliott Harned. He graduated from Wyalusing High School, a member of the class of 1964. He married the former Janet I. Detrick of Quicks Bend on November 8, 1968.


After school he joined his father in operating the family dairy farm in Herrickville. He ran the farm for 20 years and then went to work for Arey Lumber, and then retired from Herrick Township.


          He enjoyed spending time with family, especially his grandchildren and beloved daughters-in-law, who he loved like they were his own daughters. He liked fishing and telling jokes around the kitchen table. He was well known for his passion for cooking barbeque chicken, an event that was not to be missed by his friends and family.
