Thomas Harris - Obituary

Thomas Earle Harris, 63, passed away unexpectedly and with his family by his side on Thursday, March 7, 2019 at Tidelands Waccamaw Community Hospital in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina.  He was born on November 9, 2055 in Elmira, New yOrk to the late Earle Franklin Harris and Eleanor Gene (MacEwen) Harris.

A hardworking man, Tom started his career path early on.  He proudly followed in his father's footsteps and went to work in the sheet metal industry.  In 1977, Tom was an apprentice sheet metal worker; as his training and skills improved, Tom trained as a journeyman from 1987 until 2007.  In 2018, Tom achieved the distinction of Development Specialist for the Sheet Metal Union 112 and was able to retire and enjoy the finer things in life.  He was active in his community, a member fo the Masonic Lodge and had achieved his Scottish Rite.  In his free time, Tom loved fishing, golfing, boating, traveling the world, cheering on the University of Notre Dame sports teams , and above all else, spending time with his family.  His friends and family describe Tom as a real "Mr. Fix It," and handy man, as he loved to work with his hands and had a great knowledge of how things worked.  He will be truly missed.

Left to Cherish Tom's memory are his beloved wife, Mrs. Kelly Harris, with whom they would have celebrated 30 year of marriage in May; their daughter McKenna Harris of Hammondsport, NY; his adoring granddaughters Macie Koseba and Hadley Harris; sister, Patricia Kelly (William) of Elmira, NY and Barbara Hazard (Dan) of Port St., Lucie, FL; sister-in-law Colleen Houghtaling (late husband, Kevin) of Middlebury Center, PA; as well as several nieces and nephews; a large, loving, extended family and may supportive friends and neighbors both locally and in NY.
