“No more sickness. No more pain.”

Terry Lee Harkleroad, 66, of Kingsport, joined his wife in his heavenly home on Saturday, June 17, 2023. He was a family man, community leader, and public servant. His faith in Christ was evident and professed by him publicly. Terry served Sullivan County as a commissioner for 16 years, Chief of the Bloomingdale Fire Department and all offices through Governor of the Bloomingdale Ruritan, earning a lifetime membership.
