September 28, 1954 March 22, 2015
There are condolences waiting approval on JAMES's Tribute wall
James Franklin Harris, was born on September 28, 1954 in Prince Frederick, Maryland to the late Frank Harris and Viola Brooks. He departed this life on Sunday, March 22, 2015 at Calvert Memorial Hospital in Prince Frederick, Maryland.

James was educated in the Calvert County school system. He was employed for many years by various moving companies where he enjoyed the interaction with clients and fellow co-workers. James was known by his peers and family
members as being very fashionable and a sharp dresser. On any given day, you would find James "dressed to kill." Not only was James a huge sports fan, he was the Dallas Cowboys number one fan. James would faithfully spend every
Sunday afternoon sitting in front of the television watching the Cowboys play. In 2009, James proudly attended the Presidential Inaugural Ball with his sister Agnes Brook. As you can imagine, he was sharply dressed and very
proud to attend this historic event which honored the first elected African American President of the United States of America.

Though James experienced some setbacks in his life, he never took life for granted. James made it a point to spend as much time as possible with his family and would often express to them how much he loved them. As such, James
loved the Lord. James was not only a caring man, he was a generous and kind man. He was well known in the community and well respected by all.

He was preceded in death by his parents Frank Harris, Viola Brooks and brothers Calvin Lewis, Samuel Alexander and Uncle Leonard Eugene Gross (Mickey).

James leaves to cherish his memory his uncles Herbert Brooks, James Brooks and his aunt Mary Frances Gross (Mickey). He also leaves his siblings, Thomas, Rose (Theodore) and Agnes. He will be greatly missed by his niece Charisse Payne (Alfred) and nephew Tori Harris (Nelly), great nieces Kyra, Dontashia, Dijonna and Dalyanna. He also leaves to cherish his memory his beloved companion Bonnie McConaty, his great friend Fred Taylor and a host of dear friends and family.
