Steven was born in Albany, Oregon in 1963 to James and Leslee (Perse) Harrison. He attended school in Bend, OR, Ruston, LA and graduated from El Dorado High School in Albuquerque, where he was affectionately known as 'Hungry Harrison.' He then attended Chapman College in Orange, CA and graduated with a BA in Political Science, minor in partying. He began a lifelong business relationship in the automobile industry beginning in 1986 at Ford Motor Credit. He was employed for many years at Consignment Auto in Albuquerque.

Steven was loved dearly by those who knew him. He enjoyed basketball, football, and reading. He had a wonderful sense of humor. His brother's children fondly recall two of his favorite sayings: "No belly is ever pink enough." and, "Uncle Steven is King!"

He is survived by his wife, Hope (Duryea) Harrison; son, James (Octavia) Harrison; daughter, Tatianna Harrison; granddaughter, Azalea Harrison; his father, James Harrison; his brother, Michael (Elizabeth); many nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews.

The family wishes to thank the staff of the MICU at UNMH for the excellent care they provided Steven.
