Mr. Harris passed away on March 20, 2016 in Wedowee. Born in Mt. Vernon, Ill. on March 18, 1943, Mr. Harris called Alabama his home for the last 41 years. Mr. Harris was a soldier in service for his country for 24 years, including duty in Vietnam with distinctions too numerous to list. After retiring from the Army he worked at the former SouthTrust Bank and later at RMC. Fishermen from Alabama to Alaska to Canada to the Gulf of Mexico were proud to know Mr. Harris. His life was filled with joy and purpose. He will be truly missed as the most caring, kind and compassionate man to his family and friends. He will live in our broken hearts forever.
