Tim and John, Your Dad was a great man. It has been quite a few years since I worked with all of you but I will never forget your Dad. The time he took all the girls in the office out to dinner for the holiday's was something to remember. He teased us about needing permission slips for our husbands and got the biggest kick out of the note my husband Allen sent to him. I will never forget the laughter in his eyes when he read that note. He will truly be missed.

As Bucky famously said,"The sale's not complete until the tail-lights have left the lot". Well, Bucky's tail-lights have left the lot and are heading for a better place. My deepest sympathy and prayers go out to Margie, Patti, my brother Mike and the entire Harris family.

He was a great business man, in fact my dad purchased 2 dodge colts 1- white and 1- gold on the same day back in the 70's. This community lost a pioneer of business.

Bucky, may you enjoy the grace of God in Heaven! The irony of our Faith is that we pray to be with God in Heaven all our lives, but we don't want to leave the family that we, with God's help, have created on earth; nor does our family want us to leave them. The Ohrin family offers their sincere condolences to the Harris family. My prayers and Mass intentions have been for Bucky and his family. On the personal side, I first met Bucky in my MBA Graduate class with Dewey Johnson. I knew I wanted to work for him. In the year 2000 I got my chance at Fresno Dodge. I have worked for the Harris family at three different dealerships and would not work for anyone else. Bucky knew everyone by name, and so did the rest of his family. Bucky always asked about my family which I really appreciated. I, like him, will always be a Family Man. I will never forget him.

I was saddened to hear of Bucky's passing. He was always so kind to me with a friendly smile and funny story. He will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Bucky, as a friend,and Mr. Harris, as a patient, had a knack for making each person with whom he spoke feel important and special. He once gave me a card with words of wisdom by which to live that his father had given him. They were along the lines of, "Treat others as you would like to be treated". Some were about how to conduct business. He must have followed them; he was quite a successful businessman. I am grateful to have crossed paths with Bucky. He has made my life richer for knowing him.

Tim and Family: I was saddened to hear of Mr. Harris' passing. I will never forget how he greeted me and treated me when I was in the Lexus dealership. In 1989 when I bought my first Lexus, he invited me into his office and we chatted like we had known each other for years. I felt like family, not just a customer, and it was a good feeling being around Mr. Harris. I send you and your family my sincere condolences. He will be missed.

I loved working with Bucky in the early days downtown, even when he chewed me out for bad ad copy. He was a great mentor!

Dear Tim and John:
We send our thoughts and prayers to you both and your families. What an unspeakable privilege you both enjoyed - to work initially as understudies
to your Dad and then, later on, as his partners. He had so many reasons to smile at his boys' accomplishments! Dad displayed incredible honesty and integrity, a strong work ethic and a service heart for others; these all are so obvious in you both, thanks to his leadership.
May you heal with the best of memories, knowing especially that Dad is now at home, without a ravaged body, with Jesus.
Our Love,
Wendy and Doug Cords
