Richard Lee Harris (1937 – 2019)


Richard Lee Harris, 81, of Quarryville, passed away peacefully the morning of Thursday, August 23rd.  He was born Dec 6, 1937, to the late Edgar and Sara Britton Harris.  Richard was a Veteran of the US Navy, stationed on the USS Worcester from 1955 to 1958. He spent his entire adult career as a truck driver, driving locally, as well as, cross-country.  Between his time in the navy and his work on the road, he travelled to 10 countries and 49 states.  After forty-five years on the road, Richard retired at age 68.  He enjoyed hunting, fishing, watching westerns, NASCAR and football.  As an avid Philadelphia Eagles fan, Richard was elated to have lived long enough to see them win a Super Bowl.


Richard is survived by his six children - Debbie L. Turrell, Kathleen M. Ballard, Teresa C. Harris, Richard L. (Teresa) Harris II, E. Brian (Nicole) Harris and Kevin D. (Mary) Harris; twenty grandchildren and twenty-five great grandchildren.


In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brothers Edward and Nathan (Sonny).


Funeral services will be held at 11am on Thursday, August 29th at Ruffenach Family Funeral Home (224 Penn Ave Oxford, PA) where friends and family may visit from 10-11am.

Rich, Brian & Kevin,
Sorry to hear of the passing of your Dad. I always remembered how he always seemed to make sure he was home the first day of deer season to head for his sycamore tree up behind the old green house to watch for the big buck. He was always kind to Mom and for that I am much appreciative. Cling to your good memories; be men that he would be proud of. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers during your time of grieving.
John & Linda
