HARRIS, Dr. Ashby On Saturday, March 2nd, the world lost an adoring husband, a devoted father, a patient grandfather, a loyal friend, a superb doctor, and a brilliant man. Leaving us, Ashby Harris, 79, was surrounded by his family, he was filled with the peace one only gets from having lived a life of true substance and happiness. Ashby married Mary Ann Harkness on September 16, 1972, and they became each other's strongest ally and partner for 46 years. Ashby is remembered and loved by the family who celebrate his life and grieve his passing. He is survived by his soulmate Mary Ann, his incredible daughters and their families - Ashley & Coyt Johnston, with Porter and Reagan, and Shannon & Bill McSpadden, with Samantha - and his older brother's family, Eddie & Sara Harris. But he is remembered and missed by so many more who valued his endless wisdom, his loyalty, steadiness, and his abundant generosity of spirit.

Mary Ann, Shannon, and Ashley, my heartfelt condolences and prayers go out to you and the Harris family for the loss of Ashby, a great man indeed. I will never forget how welcoming he was in hosting SPC post season tournament dinners for the Greenhill girls basketball team, and the joy and excitement on his face of Greenhill girls winning the championship that year. So many great things about Ashby that I remember, especially those memories of how Ashby and Mary Ann's unconditional support of their daughters endeavors exemplifies how special their family is. Much love to the Harris family.
