Mr. Harry J. Inman, 66

Mr. Harry J. Inman, 66, of Bluffton, S.C., formerly of Waycross died last week at St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Savannah after an extended illness.
He was born in Hazlehurst to the late John Inman and Merle Newham Inman. He grew up on the edge of the Okefenokee Swamp where his family worked as timber workers and farmers. He graduated from Ware County High School where he lettered in football, track, baseball and basketball. Growing up in Waycross he was a member of Zenith Baptist Church. He
moved to Beaufort County, S.C., in 1985 and shortly thereafter met Melody, who would become his wife the next year. He worked at Palmetto Dunes Community in various positions for 31 years. After just three months of working at Palmetto Dunes, he was promoted to Corporal in charge of training new employees. He was eventually promoted to Sergeant and had been working in the dispatch office for the past eight years. He enjoyed watching John Wayne movies, writing gospel music and was an avid Alabama Crimson Tide football fan. More than anything he loved his family and spending time with them, especially his two grandsons.
