Kenneth "Kenny" Wayne Harbin, age 60, passed away on Saturday, July 4th, 2020.

Family Visitation is planned for Thursday, July 9, 2020 from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM at Miller Family Funeral Home. Arrangements are under the direction of Miller Family Funeral Home.

Mr. Harbin was born on March 1st, 1960 in Snyder, Texas to James and Neva (Thompson) Harbin.

Kenny was a correctional officer for the great state of Texas for over 30 years, beginning his career in Angleton, TX at the Ramsey Unit before returning home to Snyder as one of the first officers to open the Daniel Unit. He spent the rest of his career at the Daniel Unit from which he briefly retires. He then returned to service at the Daniel Unit working visitation on the weekends. While working visitation, Kenny developed relationships with the families coming to visit their loved ones. He left a long-lasting positive impact on many of these families.

Kenny treated everyone with love and respect, regardless of their circumstances in life. The overwhelming love and support shown from families and co-workers that Kenny touched is truly a testament to his character.

Kenny always had a positive message or joke to pass along. He enjoyed seeing happiness in those around him. Often a man of few words, a joke would crack his hard exterior and you would be rewarded with his classic goofy grin. Usually he would tell a joke in return and if you weren't careful, this exchange could go on for hours, because the man was a walking joke index. Kenny loved a good joke, and he really loved a bad one.

In his personal life Kenny was an avid reader. He loved Louis Lamour and westerns, in particular. He enjoyed watching movies and sharing them with his family. Kenny was as avid supporter of his second amendment rights and took great pride in collecting, building, restoring and talking about firearms.

Kenny was most proud to be a father and grandfather. He loved his children and grandchildren dearly and would readily show off pictures and videos to any and everyone who would sit still long enough for him to get his phone out.

Kenny was a loving son, brother, father and friend. Kenny leaves behind a legacy of love, respect and character for his family that will carry them through life. Kenny, a man of few words, somehow managed to impact so many people through love and the gift of laughter.

Philippians 4:13 - I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Son, Britt Boyd Harbin and wife Kirby of Colorado City, TX;
Daughter, BranDee Paige Huff of Abilene, TX;
4 Granddaughters, Brady Polich, Madalyn Polich, Scarlett McKamie and Blake Harbin, all of Colorado City, TX;

Although I haven't seen Kenny in years, whoever wrote his obituary hit the nail on the head! Kenny was my brother in law for many years, we shared some precious memories at my mom's house back in the day. Until we meet again one day, goodbye Kenmy.

My love and prayers go out to the Harbin family. I worked as a teacher at the Daniel Unit for years; and, it was always an uplifting experience just to see Kenny. He was such a great person to be around. May God give the family and friends strength in this time of sorrow.
