In his spare time, Harland was a member of the Classic Glass Corvette Club.  He enjoyed going on trips with the club in his red 2015 Corvette and attending car shows.  He also enjoyed tinkering with cars and building and fixing things around the home and for anyone who needed it. He never found an item that could not be cleaned!  He was a lifetime member of the New Philadelphia Elks and had formerly attended the Dover Alliance Church at Dover.
