Nicholas Sloan Harmon
PELL CITY - Nicholas Sloan Harmon was born on October 31, 1999 - thus the nickname "Boo." He attended Pell City schools and graduated from Pell City High School. He also attended Jefferson State Community College and was planning to transfer to Auburn University in 2020 to specialize in the field of aviation. Sloan celebrated his 20th birthday just days before his untimely death. In the two decades in which he lived, he accomplished more than many people three times his age.
In his teenage years, Sloan joined the Cheaha Mountain Bike Racing Team and practiced diligently to become the best he could be. He and his teammates won the Alabama State Championship and he finished 5th in his category.
Sloan was a member of the PCHS Wrestling Team. In his senior year, he qualified for the Class 6A state championship and was one of the top 16 wrestlers in his weight classification in Alabama. With each step of his wrestling career, he congratulated and loved his team members and remained humble with his victories.
While in high school - in addition to wrestling - Sloan was a member of JROTC and attended Jefferson State Community College. He then worked at the St. Clair County Airport doing whatever task was required. His love for aviation grew immensely. Sloan was a few flights away from earning his private pilot's license.
After graduation from high school and wanting to serve his beloved country, he followed in the footsteps of his father and brother. Sloan joined the United States Air Force and graduated with honors from the Tactical Aircraft Maintenance Technical School. As an Airman 1st Class with the 117th Air Refueling Wing's Aircraft Maintenance Squadron of the Alabama Air National Guard in Birmingham, Alabama. He was honored and proud to serve as a KC-135 crew chief.
The greatest gift which was given Sloan was the gift of Jesus Christ at an early life. He led a Christian life and was an example to all that knew him. A tremendous consolation to his family is knowing that he was embraced by his Savior and was escorted personally through the Golden Gates of Heaven.
Sloan left this earthly life on Tuesday, November 5, 2019.
He was preceded in death by his great-grandparents, Marion and Geraldine Wood, Alton and Matilee Dorough, Eldred and Bessie Harmon and William and Vera Sloan.
He is survived by his parents, Randall Lyle Harmon and Shelly Lynne Harmon; grandparents, Eldred Randall Harmon and Vicki Dorough Harmon and Bill and Marian Sloan; brothers, William Randall Harmon and fiance', Anna Marie White and Brody Lyle Harmon; uncles and aunts, Heath and Kim Harmon, Dori and David Rich, David and Susan Simpson, David Sloan; special friends, AnnaBelle Hample, Jeb Durham and Kolby Hufford.

"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles..."
