Harley Ellsworth Erb III, 88, passed peacefully into God’s presence Saturday, June 8. 

Harley was born in Salem, Va. Attended Roanoke College and graduated from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville with a mechanical engineering degree. He was an avid lifelong Vols fan. Harley served honorably in the U.S. Army during WWII and in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War as a meteorology officer. A career as a heating and air conditioning engineer preceded becoming a successful small business owner of Baskin Robbins and multiple Subways. Harley’s quick wit, upbeat personality, and warmhearted, kind spirit touched all who knew him. He was a wonderful Christian son, brother, husband, father and grandfather. God blessed him with a large family who loved and adored him. His great sense of humor and ability to tell a much embellished joke, sometimes even in dialect, will be missed. His family was always a top priority in his long life. His positive attitude brought joy to those who knew him and was a model of his strong, trusting faith. Harley enjoyed years of golf, travel and was a devoted member of St. Luke Cumberland Presbyterian Church where he served as an elder and Sunday school teacher. 

He is survived by: his wife, Betty Defoe Bowling Erb; brother, Dr. Blair D. Erb; son, Harley E. Erb, IV (Donna), daughter Jane Erb Kirkpatrick (Jim), grandchildren, Jay Kirkpatrick (Katharine), Chris Erb (Meghan), Kelley Erb, Kathryn Erb Punke (Chris) and five great grandchildren with two on the way.

These survivors include children Kerma Bowling Wilson (Nelson), Jayne Bowling Duncan (Tony), David Bowling and Dough Bowling (Julie); grandchildren Matthew Wilson (Meghan), Rebekah Wilson, Benjamin Bowling (Whitney), Will Bowling, Julieanne Bowling, John Berry Bowling, Zack Duncan, Hayley Grace Duncan and one great grandson.
