GEORGE W. HARKINS, 66 of Dover, PA, formerly of Pylesville, MD, was suddenly called home to be with our Lord on Wednesday, May 13, 2020. He was the beloved husband of Judy Miller-Harkins with whom he had shared nearly 5 years of marriage.

Born on February 9, 1954 in Fallston, MD, he was one of seven children born to Margaret (Markline) Harkins of Whiteford, MD and the late Edgar Irving Harkins, Jr., as well as a 1972 graduate of North Harford High School in Pylesville, MD.

In his adolescence years, George was active on the Pylesville family dairy farm and was a 4-H club member working with Ayrshire dairy cattle as his projects. He received numerous awards and had been recognized for many achievements. He continued his love for the 4-H program serving on the board of directors for the 4-H Camp of Harford County and was a dedicated supporter of the 4-H All Star Program. True to his agricultural heritage, George served on the board of directors for the Harford County Farm Fair where he continued later as a director emeritus and was a staunch supporter of the FFA program. He was a co-chairman of the Shepherd’s Auction held at the annual Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival and had served on the Eastern National Livestock Fair Committee. A carpenter, George had been known as a jack of all trades having many talents; he had been employed by various businesses.
