Harley was born in Spearman to Clarence and Lockie Dennis Kern on July 19, 1932.  One of six children.  The family moved to Amarillo where Harley graduated from Amarillo High.  He greatly appreciated AG and the AG teacher which further enhanced his love for animals.
Harley had a great love for animals, over time he raised various breeds of dogs, Shepherds, Min Pins, Pomeranians, Boston Bulldogs, English Bulldogs and Yorkie Terriers.
As a young man, he cowboyed for Whittenburg on the Turkey Track for an interesting and exciting time.  He went to Panhandle State at Goodwell, Oklahoma and was voted “Ugliest Man on Campus”.  He joined the Navy and could tell some stories about storms at sea.  He made some great friendships but loved Amarillo best.
Harley worked as an agent for Texas International and Continental Airlines where he had many great friends and memories.  He owned a small ranch and had some exciting times with the cow/calf operation.
Harley enjoyed people, laughed a lot, and will be greatly missed.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Mrs. Lockie Kern and Clarence Kern; a brother, Clarence Jr.; sister, Judy and Tucker Love; and a sister-in-law, Georgia Kern.
He is survived by his partner, Dennis Brown; brothers, Jerry and Karen Kern, and Dennis Kern, all of Amarillo, Gene and wife of Reno, NV, and Gerald and wife, of Washington State.
Harley had many special people in his life that we want to recognize, Ronnie and Shannon Heck, Jeremiah Cantrell, Jerry Dean “Pete” and wife Windy Kern, Cris Kurtis, Wylma, Mark Rawh and Richard Pullen, and Jane, David Barren, and Larry Dockery.
