Harris Granger Pharr (21), our beloved son and big brother has moved on to his life eternal. Harris was born in Atlanta, Georgia and grew up in Charlotte, NC, Atlantic Beach, FL and spent the last four years in Raleigh and Chapel Hill, NC. Harris represented the best in all of us and his zest in life was infectious to all those whom he met in his short journey here on earth. Harris was gifted with many incredible talents of discovery and the world of science and technology soon became his universe. His thirst for new knowledge and discoveries defined his passion in life. He was a natural athlete in many sports including swimming, baseball and lacrosse and he touched so many of his friends lives over the years with his warmth and curiosity of nature.
