Mr. Harbin


On Jan. 3, 2021, James Wayne Harbin died at age 75.

James was born a twin on Feb. 4, 1945 in Anniston, Alabama to Clifford Lamar Harbin and Margaret Nell Williamson Harbin.

He graduated from Spring Garden High School and entered the Air Force.

James was the father to four children: Rhonda, Mike, Robin and Michelle.

James had a love for family and Alabama football. He spent years working and volunteering in the communities where he lived and spent all his time making sure things were clean and beautiful. His pride and joy were Storm’s Drive-In and Country Kitchen in Lampasas.

He loved to play checkers. He would let you steal all his checkers except for one, then wipe your board clean. His smile and laughter were contagious. He would help anyone who needed it. James loved the Lord.

He was preceded in death by a brother, Paul Harbin; and by four sisters, Betty Harbin, Anne York, Sammie Turner and his twin, Janice Harbin.

James is survived by his children Rhonda Herring of Hamilton, Mike Harbin and wife Heather of Port Townsend, Washington, Robin Donahoo and husband Brent of Hamilton, and Michelle Lopez Lamb and husband David Lamb of Hamilton; 19 grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.
