Harley Pinson, 80, of Plainfield, Indiana passed away on March 29, 2021 in Avon, Indiana. He was born to Jay and Gracie (Watts) Pinson in West Virginia on September 6, 1940.
Harley was quite the handyman, being involved in many hobbies such as whittling, fishing, going to garage sales, spending time at casinos, playing with drones, and constantly staying busy whether he was in the garage tinkering or finding something to fix. He loved being a part of such a large family. Harley retired from Milturn Corporation after years worth of a career in machine-operating.
He is preceded in death by his parents Jay and Gracie (Watts) Pinson, his brothers James and Johnny Pinson, and sisters Georgia Ann Brooks and Jayetta McCloud.
