Muncie – Earl “Gene” Harnish 82, passed away peacefully in his sleep after a decline in health surrounded by his family, on Tuesday morning, November 16, 2021. 

He was born in Daleville on September 13,1939 to Otis and Alice Harnish.
Gene was a US Army Veteran. He retired from Indiana Gas in 2001, after 31 years of employment. Gene loved his family first, God and country. He never met a stranger and his ornery tormenting of others was one of his favorite pastimes, which put many smiles on many faces right to the very end. Family and friends have fond memories of time spent with him. Gene enjoyed camping and was a fan of auto racing and cherished the friendships developed there.

He was preceded in death by one son; Eric Lee, his parents, and his seven siblings.

He is survived by his loving wife; Dianna, of 57 years, his three children; Brenda (Kevin) Kline, Jamie Harnish and Chris Harnish, seven grandchildren; Zach, Chasity, Amanda, Laura, KyLeigh, Dylan, Gavin, fifteen great- grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild, and  several other relatives and friends who all will cherish his memory.

Cremation will take place and a private burial be held at a later date.

The Meeks Mortuary and Crematory, Washington Street Chapel is in charge of arrangements and online condolences may be sent to the family at www.meeksmortuary.com.
