Glen Harris Obituary

On February 10th, the light in our lives forever dimmed. Glen Edward Harris passed away suddenly, an honorable and loving man.

He was born August 19th, 1952 in Marysville, California and was survived by his loving wife of 32 years Lanny Harris, his daughters Jesse and Kendra and his son Rick (Heidi), grandchildren Claudia, Gavin, Mia, Stephan, Jake, AJ, Emily, Olivia, and his great granddaughter Raelynn. His grandchildren were the love of his life.

He was preceded in death by his mother and father Glossie and Logan, his siblings L.T., Richard, Joann, and Sterling. He is survived by his siblings Wanda, Sue, Rose (Harold), David (Linda) and Bill (Ricki) and numerous nieces and nephews.

He retired five years ago after 32 years of service with the Yuba County Probation Department. He continuously rose through the ranks of the department, closing his career as the Superintendent of Institutions. Prior to his service at the probation department, he worked for the Yuba County District Attorney's office, Lindhurst High School, and ran the JTPA work program, where he met the love of his life, "his Lanny". Not only was he an all star athlete and recod holder in the shot put event, he also coached football, track and field, girls softball, basketball, and wrestling. He had a passion for coaching our communities' youth.

Glen was on the MJUSD Board of Trustees and was the longest sitting board member to date. He also served on the Marysville Planning Commission, was a member of the Elks Lodge, and was a member of the Elks Lodge, and was a member of the California Probation Parole and Correctional Officers Association. Glen's commitment to the community was unparalleled.

He was a Native American of the Choctaw Nation and was active in the local Pow Wow community. He was very proud of his Native American heritage.

Glen was a gentle giant who loved his friends, family and community. He was a loyal man who inspired loyalty in others and those who knew him loved him fiercely.

A celebration of life will be held Saturday, February 25th at 1:00 pm at the Marysville High School Cafeteria, 1918 B St., Marysville. His famous spaghetti dinner will be served. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the MJUSD Education Foundation in Glen's name. An avid golfer, Glen would be pleased if you wore your golf hat, Hawaiian shirt, and shorts.

Holycross Memorial entrusted with arrangements.
