Robert B. Harris

Robert B. Harris, 56, of Rootstown, died Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at his home following a four year battle with cancer. When diagnosed he was given one year to survive with traditional treatment. After extensive research, Rob chose his own path, living a total of four years, in relentless pursuit of a cure.

He was born May 7, 1962 in Cleveland, Ohio to John D. and Margaret E. (Christian) Harris. Robert was a U.S. Air Force Veteran and a long time member of the NRA. He worked for Schneller Aircraft Interiors and WAS an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed golfing, fishing and gardening.

Survivors include his siblings, Carl (Cindy) Harris, Chad (Nancy) Harris, Craig (Denise) Harris, Sirrah (Steve) Medeiros and Roger Harris and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother, John D. Harris, Jr. The family would like to extend special thanks to Crossroads Hospice.
