Herbert Michael Harbison, Sr. was born on April 6, 1967 in Burlington, Iowa, the son of Tom and Sherry (Fletcher) Harbison.  Mike was a 1985 graduate of Morning Sun High School.  On July 25, 1987, he was united in marriage to Wendy Rodruck in Mount Pleasant.  Mike worked as a truck driver all of his life and owner/operator of Mike Harbison Trucking.  You would never meet a person who had more knowledge of Mack Trucks than Mike.  One of his biggest life highlights was the commercial “The Horn” that he had the honor to be a part of.  Mike traveled to many truck shows and truck pulls and received numerous awards. He was a member of the ATHS and ATCA antique truck clubs.   His family and grandchildren and the time he spent with them was the most important thing to Mike.
