Harlow was born December 31, 1939 in Wolcott, at the family homestead, the son of the late Leon T. and Edna (Bennett) Everett. He graduated from Wolcott Leavenworth Central School in 1959. Harlow was a licensed barber until entering the US Army in 1963 where he was a medic. He served in the US Army until 1965 earning the rank of PFC.
When he was honorably discharged, Harlow continued barbering and worked with his brother for, Davy Tree Experts, removing trees and doing restoration. He worked for the NYS Department of Transportation for 30 years continuing with tree removal and a wing man on the snowplows.

Harlow’s love of flowers and all plant life were evident in his large rose garden and the many trees he planted. Over the years, he did many chainsaw carvings and enjoyed working with wood. He loved to be outdoors where he could appreciate all that nature had to offer. In previous years he enjoyed snowshoeing, cross country skiing, canoe racing, fishing, hunting, target/trap shooting, weight lifting and backwoods camping.
Harlow had many talents. He was an excellent cook and looked forward to doing jigsaw puzzles, listening to old music, collecting and researching old coins and reminiscing about “the good ole days” over coffee with his friends at Fosters.
