If I can help somebody
As I travel along
If I can help somebody
With a word or song
If I can help somebody
From doing wrong
My living shall not be in vain.

Mr. William Henry Harley, Jr. (better known as Billy Harley) age 72 of  Marianna, Florida went home to be with the Lord on Monday, August 6, 2018 at the Bay Medical Center in Panama City, Florida.

God dispatched the Angel of Death to relay a message to Billy saying "I see your road is rough, and the hill is getting too steep. Come rest your head upon My breast, your soul I will keep.

He was the son of the late William H. Harley, Sr. and Sallie Harley.

He attended and graduated from Jackson County Training School in Marianna, Florida of class 1964. Billy was joined in Holy Matrimony to Dorothy Adams Harley. He attended Talladega University in Talladega, Alabama where he received his Bachelor’s degree. Billy would follow on after college to become an educator and teach at Marianna High School for over 10 years.

There he would serve as a Social Studies teacher and assistant basketball coach until he decided to change careers. He lived a full life by doing the things he enjoyed which was attending watching sports events and spending time with family and friends.

He leaves behind two children: William Henry Harley III (wife, Le’Keisha) of Evans, Georgia and Rochelle White of Marianna, Florida; five grandchildren; cousins: Isaac E. Patton, Jr. and Juan Dixon; other relatives and friends.

Please keep the Harley family in prayer, as we reflect the gracious memories.
