Harris, Richard Leroy, 66, It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Richard Leroy Harris. He died on May 18, 2017 from complications related to Interstitial Lung Disease. He was surrounded by his family as he entered into eternal life. Rick was born in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on June 29, 1950 to Ellen (Riley) and Lote Harris. He came to California at the age of 8 on the Santa Fe, which inspired his lifelong love of trains. He lived first in Corcoran, CA and later moved to Southern California where he graduated from Santiago High School in Garden Grove. After graduating high school he went on to get an AA at Santa Ana Community College as a machinist and later a certificate as a diesel mechanic. It was during his time in college that he met and married the love of his life, Kathryn Marie Carlson. He went on to have a 42 year career in the Transportation Services Department of Southern California Edison. Whether it was sitting behind the steering wheel of the church bus or driving out to save a friend with a broken down car, Rick had a heart as big as he was. He gave tirelessly to all who knew him and asked for very little in return. All of his friends and family have a special place in their hearts for him. His last years were spent traveling the world with his loving wife, visiting family, and making new friends. He is survived by his wife of 46 years, Kathy Harris and his three children, Julie Tillmann (Andreas), Thomas Harris (Lacee) and Garrity Loughnane (Dennis). He is survived by his siblings, Bob Harris and Joyce Wilson. He is also survived by the apples of his eye, his grandchildren, Eli and Ansel Tillmann, and Magnolia Harris. But most importantly he is survived by countless members of his family, friends, and co-workers who were touched and comforted by his generosity of spirit and his love for life! He will be so greatly missed by all. Services will be held at Grace Lutheran Church in Huntington Beach, CA on Thursday, May 25, 2017. Please call the church for further details
