He had a fine appreciation of art and natural beauty. He is survived by his brother, Mark Harrington; sister, Sally Holmes; wife, Delia Harrington; sons, Erin and Anyon Harrington, and his dog, Marvin. Per Gordons request, there will be a private family ceremony. He also requested that it would be lovely if you would make a donation to the U.C. Davis Herbarium or to Yolo Hospice.
