Mr. Harris’s birth was at home, the home of his grandmother, Mattie Jo Reynolds, on November 18, 1932. He was the son of Alton Harris and Eloyse Reynolds Harris. He attended Texarkana Texas schools, playing football for Watty Myers. His athleticism earned him a scholarship to SMU, but he attended only briefly before enlisting in the US Air Force at the start of the Korean War. He was sent, instead, to Germany where he helped “hold the line” against East Germany in Bavaria as part of the “Fursty” Furstenfeldbruck air force contingent. Achieving the rank of Airman 1st Class, he was discharged after four years. Returning home to Mt. Pleasant, he joined his stepfather, R. L. Willson, in operating the area Borden Milk franchise. He left the milk business for a long time career at Lone Star Steel Co. He stayed more than 30 years. Harris made his home in Lone Star and had the distinction of becoming the longest serving active member of Lone Star Steel Credit Union. The family will receive friends from 10 am until service time Thursday at the church.
