Former Harriman mayor Harold Wester died Tuesday.
In his many years of public service, Wester also had been a member of the city council and a member of the Roane Quarterly Court — the predecessor to the county commission.
State Sen..-elect Ken Yager of Harriman called Wester “a real servant of the people."
“He had the interest of Harriman at heart," Yager wrote. "He managed the city’s resources well and took a great interest in moving Harriman forward. You could always find him at city hall looking after the city’s business or helping a constituent."
Wester also was a personable man outside of his public duties.
"After he retired, you could find him hanging out at Goldston’s service station, where
you could expect a smile and an update on the happenings in town. I will miss those visits," Yager said.
There's no word yet on services, although Kyker Funeral Home in Harriman is handling arrangements.
