A Message from Our Divisional Leaders

Aloha to our Salvation Army ‘Ohana,

It is with a heavy heart that we inform you of Major Dave Harmon’s Promotion to Glory last Friday, August 14. Major Harmon died after a brief battle with a serious illness. We will miss his warm spirit, his energy and love for life, and his servant heart.

Major Dave Harmon has been a part of The Salvation Army for more than 30 years. His service to those in most need has extended to Trinidad, the Bahamas, Chicago, Guam, Santa Monica, Seattle, our Territorial Headquarters, and Hawaii.

He played a role in establishing the Pathway of Hope initiative in Hawaii, which helps individuals and families break the intergenerational cycle of drug addiction and poverty through securing stable jobs, safe housing, and becoming sufficient, contributing members of the community. His passion was to help others find hope and the resources to get back on their feet.


“Strife and sorrow over, The Lord’s true faithful soldier, Has been called to go from the ranks below, To the conq’ring host above.” – Herbert Howard Booth

Our hearts go out to the Harmon Family and their children. We ask you to keep their family in your prayers during this difficult time.

A funeral service will be held for Major Dave on Friday, August 28, at 6 p.m. at:

Borthwick Mortuary

1330 Maunakea Street

Honolulu, HI 96817
