Sam J. Harris Obituary
May 15, 1935 - May 3, 2017 Samuel J. Harris passed from this world into a different orbit... A beloved husband, father, grandfather, and aerospace engineer, he helped to propel missions into space. Sam's pioneering work on the Delta rocket program ensured modern satellite communications and breakthrough scientific discoveries. He enjoyed bike riding, travel, and the constant, enduring love of his wife Roberta of nearly 50 years. His kind heart and spirit of adventure touched all who met him. We love you; enjoy your exploration of worlds unknown!
