Steve Harris

Obituary

Steve Harris, 52, died of injuries sustained in a March 2014 mudslide in Oso, Wash.

Steve and Theresa Harris were south Texans who came to Washington in 1998 for his job as a naval architect at Elliott Bay Design Group (EBDG) in Seattle. Theresa was a retired nurse, according to her brother, Mark Christoph.

The couple had two adult daughters, Laura and Kristina. During the week the couple stayed at an Edmonds condo and on weekends headed for their cabin near the North Fork of the Stillaguamish River, where they liked to fish, walk and relax and intended to retire. Theresa was a free spirit and "hippie environmentalist," her brother said.

The couple's travels included Singapore, Dubai, the Galápagos Islands and other faraway places Steve's job took him to. A licensed engineer, he helped design ferries for four states, including Washington, said Christina Villiott, EBDG marketing director. "He was there for our customers," Villiott said.
