Samuel "Alan" Harris Obituary
Samuel "Alan" Harris was born on April 5, 1948 and grew up in Oildale, California. He graduated from North High School in 1966. He joined the U.S. Army in 1968 where he drove a Tank for the 1st Calvary Infantry and proudly fought in our Vietnam War.
Alan was a quiet foundation for many of his friends who loved him and depended on him. In his life he refused to be praised or complemented, however in our hearts we will never forget all of those wonderful things that Alan did to help out.
He is preceded in death by both his parents Sam and Juanita Harris, his brothers, Phil and Gerald Harris and sister Joann Harris. He is survived by his youngest brother Melvin Harris, and his companion of 25 years Mary Martin.
