Harlow Douglas Sayers Jr. passed away in Reno, Nevada, on Aug. 21, 2021.

Harlow was born March 2, 1959, in Speedwell, Virginia, to Harlow Douglas and Peggy Ann Sayers.

He grew up in Susanville, graduating from Lassen High School in 1976; he then entered the Army and was stationed in Germany.

Harlow lived in Reno, Nevada, the last 44 years, where he was a slot tech in gaming and worked at several casinos: Harold’s Club, Fitzgerald’s, Atlantis, Baldini’s and Konami Gaming.

Harlow loved to barbecue, watch Nascar and always cheered on No. 48, Jimmie Johnson, his favorite driver. He enjoyed watching his favorite football team, the Miami Dolphins, play, and he loved going to the theater and watching a movie.

My brother Harlow had a gift of making people laugh and always had a joke to tell.

Harlow was predeceased by his wife and his true and only love, Audrey Sayers; and both parents, Doug and Peggy Sayers.

He is survived by his children, Melanie, Harlow and Jessica, and numerous grandchildren; sister Stephanie Anne Sayers and nephew Jordan Douglas Van Brunt, and brother Richard Harvey Sayers.
