Harris, Donald W.  
Harris, Donald W. Donald W. Harris passed away Tuesday April 14th, with his family by his side. Dad was born on July 2nd 1933 in Indianapolis, Indiana where he attended Arsenal Technical High School. Soon after graduation, Dad joined the Army during the Korean War and was stationed in Bushey, England. It was there that he met the love of his life, Ann (Askew) Harris. He convinced this 17 year old to marry him, cross the Atlantic Ocean by boat to the USA, and settle in Appleton, WI. This became a love of 60 years, a bond of two people that I am honored to have witnessed and to have learned from. I want to publically thank my mother for all that she has ever done for Dad and especially the selfless sacrifice of the past two years that allowed Dad to continue to live at home - the only place that he wanted to be. Dad's accomplishments were many. He enjoyed a 40 year career with Industrial Insulation, Inc.. He recently became a 50 year member of the American Legion Post 38. It was here that he served as Post Commander, served on the "Brass Hats Drill Team", and also on the funeral firing party. He served as a scoutmaster with the Boy Scouts of America for Troop 71, and also served with the Victim Crisis Response unit of the Appleton Police Department. He has been a longtime member of the Appleton Masonic Lodge #349 A. and F.M.; he loved his brethren deeply. He served as Worshipful Master, earned his 32° Mason honors, and received multiple "Mason of the Year" awards. Dad was also a member of the Appleton Shrine Club; he was very proud of the work his club did on behalf of Shriners Hospitals for Children. We are all so proud of Dad's accomplishments, and yet they are overshadowed by his sincerity and his sentimental nature. He loved his family; it was so important to him that everyone knew that without question. He would shed tears of joy when any of his grandchildren would achieve any degree of accomplishment or success, tears of joy when all the kids could be home all at once and the family all together, and even tears of joy simply when reading the words of a Hallmark card. Tears of sorrow were there too. Dad felt personal anguish when misfortune fell upon any of us. If we were hurting, he was hurting. The depth of his love for Mom and all of us is what I will remember most. Dad is survived by his wife Ann Harris, son and daughter-in-law Donn and Lauri Harris, his sister Florence (Terry) Fieweger, and his grandchildren Ted (fiancée Caitlin Diedrich), Brad, and Emily Harris. He was preceded in death by his parents Ernest and Ora Harris, his brothers Earl, Ray, and Harold Harris, his sisters Katherine Smith and Francis Huffman, his brother-in-law Jack Fieweger, and his granddaughter Elizabeth (Betsy) Harris. Education was of the utmost importance to my father and with all 3 grandchildren in college and finals approaching, we are celebrating Dad's eternal life after the semester ends. Visitation will be held May 16th at St. James United Methodist Church from 9:30 - 11:00 a.m., followed by a funeral service at 11:00 a.m. with Pastor Mark Klaisner officiating. Military honors performed by Appleton Legion Post #38 will immediately follow the service. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). A special thanks to my parent's neighbors. The kindness and thoughtfulness that you have shown my parents over these past few years is remarkable. Thanks also to the 5th floor staff of Appleton Medical Center, and to Tim Trettin of Brettschneider Trettin - Nickel Funeral Home, for the respect and care given to my father. Love, Donn
