Jason Kirk Harwell

Jason Harwell, 47, of China Spring, passed away Monday, June 24, 2019.

Visitation: 6-8 PM, Thursday, June 27 at Lake Shore Funeral Home

Graveside Service: 11:00 AM, Friday, June 28 at China Spring Cemetery, with Pastor James Berger officiating.

Jason was born December 9, 1971, in Waco.  He graduated from Waco High School and attended McLennan Community College.  He served his country, as a United States Marine, from 1992-1996.  After being honorably discharged, he worked for AT&T, as a cable splicer, for 18 years, and also served as Union President.  He was a past Master of J.H. Gurley Lodge No. 337, in Waco.

Jason lived on the bank of the Brazos River all his adult life.  He loved the river, and enjoyed fishing, hunting, and played a good game of golf.  He also loved to play the guitar, and often did at get-togethers with friends and family on the river bank.  Two if his favorite hobbies were the game of pool and target shooting.  He was a great father, brother, son, and friend.

I am sure that Jason’s home in Heaven will the close to a beautiful river.  We shall all meet again.  Jason will be soulfully missed, but loved and in the hearts of his family and friends forever.

Jason was preceded in death by grandparents, Marvin and Tiny Harwell and Cleburne and Audrey Kirk.

He is survived by his father, Tim Harwell, of Bosqueville; mother and step-father, Judy and Dan Berkheimer, of China Spring; daughter, Jamie Allissa Knudson, of Waco;  son, Jason Timothy Harwell, of Waco; brothers, Joshua T. Harwell, of Riesel and Chapan Harwell, of Lorena; grandson, Liam Knudson; aunts, Pam McKown, Valerie Kelinske, and Myra Matthieu.

    Judy, Jamie, Liam, and family…we are heartbroken for you all! We have no words that can comfort…no words of advice on how to move forward. You are all in our thoughts and our daily prayers. And even those words seem hollow. We have lost parents, and a child…nothing can prepare you for it and nothing eases the pain. Know this, God is carrying you all for as long as you need Him to. Praying Gods infinite grace and comfort for you all! Judy, and Jamie…HUGS for you both. I know it doesn’t seem this way now, but the last 3 months have been a gift from God! Cherish your memories. And know you will see him again!

    Love, hugs, and prayers,
    Conrad and Devan Knudson

    Though I didn’t know Jason personally, I knew Audrey for many years as her hairdresser and some times she would bring her grandson with her but I am not sure which one. There was one time while Audrey was under the dryer that her grandson was singing” Elvira” but mis- understood the lyrics. He was singing “Hell Fire A” . When Audrey finally heard him she was so embarrassed but we all got a good laugh out of it. I knew Judy and Pam. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time of loss way too soon. Hold tight to your memories and you will always have him.

  13. I have such great memories of Jr High football and school with Jason. It was great to get to catch back up with him. I will miss him. My condolences to his family. Godspeed Jason.
