Robert “Kayo” Harlow, 81, of Port Neches, Texas, passed away on Friday, October 6, 2023, at Harbor House in Beaumont.  

A memorial service will be held on October 28, 2023 at 2:00 pm at The Temple church in Port Arthur, Texas. Reverend Phil Chamberlin will officiate.  

Kayo was born in Port Arthur, Texas on May 25, 1942. He was the son of Marvin Vernon Harlow and Thelma Gladys (Vinson) Harlow. He was married to his loving wife of forty-four years, Patricia (Lanclos) Harlow. Kayo served our country in the United States Army and after his deployment, attended Lamar Institute of Technology and then Lamar University, pursuing a degree in electrical engineering. He worked for Motiva Refinery, retiring after 32 years of service. His happiest years of employment were when he worked as a consultant after he retired.

Kayo was an active member of The Temple church, where he taught Sunday School, served on various committees, and was a founding member of the praise team. He played the bass guitar on the praise team for twenty years. Kayo was active in the local Ham Radio club and the Port Arthur yacht club: he had a sailboat for more than 35 years.  

Kayo loved music, sailing, his family, and most of all, Jesus. He could fix anything, and loved helping others. He was always smiling and had a positive outlook on life. Kayo was determined to see the good in people and never gave up on anyone. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him and will be forever in our hearts.  

He is preceded in death by his parents and his siblings, Lila Lee (Harlow) Henry and Marvin Vernon Harlow.     

Kayo is survived by his wife, Patricia Harlow; his son, Michael Scott Harlow of Nederland, Texas; his two daughters, Kelli Lynn Harlow of Port Neches, Texas; and Kari Ann Maddox and husband Andrew of Waco, Texas; as well as his five beloved grandchildren.

While living with them he also lived in and attended schools in Eugene, Orgeon and Redwood City, California. He finished High School in Enid, Ok.    

Wanting to honor his father’s military service, at age 17 Cecil enlisted into the Army National Guard. He served proudly with the 45TH FIELD ARTILLERY GROUP and was Honorably Discharged in November of 1976.

He was a Driller for several oilfield companies working on and offshore in Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana and New Mexico.  He was also a ranch foreman and trained cutting horses. He was a proud HAM radio operator, AE5ER with friends from all over the world.  

Some of Cecil and Glenda’s children’s favorite childhood memories are their camping trips. Although sometimes annoyed by the HAM radio they really enjoyed being able to hear the International Space Station and Santa Clause on Cecil’s HAM radio.

Following Joshua born in 1982, Matthew in 1983, Lora in 1984 and finally William Casey in 1988.  If you lost count that was 5 kids 4 and under and then another added 3 years and 2 months later. They raised their children in Mineral Wells and Jacksboro Texas. Cecil also has an older daughter Jaimie  Robinson. Jamie did not grow up with the family, but she was always loved by them all.
