Harris


Henry “Hank” Evan Harris passed away on March 2, 2016, at the age of 81, with his family at his bedside. He was a resident of Versailles, KY. He was a loving and dedicated husband and father and will be greatly missed. He was a veteran of the U.S. Army and a true American patriot. Hank, as he was affectionately known (“Peepaw” by his grandchildren), loved nothing more than telling a funny story. Whenever the family would get together for holidays or reunions, there was always lots of laughter in the house. Hank enlisted in the U.S. Army on December 5, 1952, and served as a paratrooper during the Cold War until Nov. 26, 1954. Hank met his future bride, Nora Jones, in August 1963. They were married on October 29, 1965, and went on to have five children. They recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in 2015 with their entire family in attendance. Hank spent most of his working career in the field of security, managing security for other businesses and retired from AAA national headquarters in Heathrow, FL, in the late 1990s. He is preceded in death by his parents, James and Margaret Harris; brothers Buck, Bertram, Robert and Jim; and grandson, Christopher. He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Nora Harris, and their five children, Marty Harris (son) and wife, Allison Harris, of Alabama, Lucinda Harris (daughter) of Florida, Dwayne Harris (son) and wife, Stacey Harris, of Florida, Vernon Harris (son) and wife, Brittnie Harris, of Florida, and Tonua Harris-Branch (daughter) and husband, Keith Branch, of Florida. He is also survived by his sisters, Barbara Waltman and Nan Sevy. He and Nora have 12 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren. The family respectfully requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Fresh Outpouring Ministries. This ministry was close to Hank’s heart, as he donated to fund the growth in Guatemala. Any donations will be used to provide Bibles, food, and other necessities for the families in need. Donations can be made at www.freshoutpouring.com.
