Gregory Bradfield Harrison Obituary
Harrison Gregory Bradfield Harrison passed away February 15, 2017, at the OSU Ross Heart Hospital following an unexpected cardiac event. Greg was married to Deborah Murphy Harrison for 46 years. Born in Columbus on December 16, 1950, Greg was a member of Bishop Hartley High School's graduating class of 1968 and received a bachelor of arts degree in journalism from the Ohio State University in 1976. Greg had a 28-year career at the American Motorcyclist Association, where he rose from graphics coordinator for the association magazine to become Executive Editor and then Vice President of Membership and Communications. He also served as one of America's representatives to the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme, the international motorcycling organization. In 2008, he joined with former colleagues at the AMA to found DGB Communications, which has since produced the magazine for the Antique Motorcycle Club of America. Greg and Debbie's family were owners of Murphy's Party Barn and Powell Motor Speedway in Powell from 1946 through 2001. The son of Frank L. Harrison Jr. and Kaythe Cheney Harrison, Greg is survived by his wife; and two sisters, Judy (Jack) Murdock and Susan (Roger) Miller. He was blessed to be uncle to their children and grandchildren. A lifelong motorcycle enthusiast, Greg introduced many to international riding through tours he led to Europe, South Africa, New Zealand and the Canadian Maritime provinces, along with rides retracing Route 66 and other historic routes in the U.S. He took pride in sharing these happy experiences with others, and loved being able to provide others with wonderful memories of those trips. We cherish the memory of a joyful man who lived a rich, full life filled with love and opportunities. A celebration of Greg's life will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 26, in the Everal Barn and Homestead, 60 N. Cleveland Ave., Westerville. In lieu of flowers, please make a contribution to .
