Harley was born to Clarence and Gladys Sundet in Salem, Oregon on November 6, 1944.  He attended Labish Center from 1st grade through 8th grade and there were only 5 kids in his classes.  When he moved up to Waldo Jr. High he was amazed by the large number of kids.  He attended North Salem High School.  While in high school he and Larry Mahan rode a mule to school right before graduation, they got in a lot of trouble and were sent home by Mr. Hanauska, who found the situation funny but had to enforce the rules.  He was a favorite of Harley’s for his sense of humor. 


After high school, Harley joined the National Guard and was stationed in Carmel, CA.  He returned home and worked for a farmer and after that he and his brother Gordon started bailing hay until Gordon passed away in 1967. His next adventure was truck driving for Exley Trucking out of Portland. He married Florence Kokel in 1968 and gained a great stepchild, Rick Kokel, they have always remained close. He worked for several trucking outfits over the years.  Harley bought furniture in Los Angeles and sold it in Salem.  In 1976 he joined Roy Herr’s Century 21 Real Estate Office.  In 1987 he married Sharon Zandol and gained two more stepchildren.  Harley loved going to rodeos with his grandson Riley, especially their trip to the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas. 


He and Sharon spent many years vacationing in Mesa, Arizona where he enjoyed spending time with friends and playing Sudoku under the shade of an umbrella by the pool.  He also loved going to farm auctions.
