Obituary: Charles E. Harris
Charles E. Harris, passed on Nov. 8, 2013, surrounded by his loving family. Born Oct. 28, 1927 in Maury County, Charles was married to his surviving wife, Anne Harris, for over 62 wonderful years.
A loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, veteran, and member of the Southern Hills Church of Christ, Charles committed his life to serving others.

He then devoted years of workmanship to E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Spontex in Columbia, Tenn. Upon retirement, Charles dedicated his time to the Volunteer Auxiliary of Williamson Medical Center and to his family whom he so dearly loved.
Charles is survived by his wife Anne; daughters Jan (Don) Cyr of Nashville and Jeri (Mike) Cameron of Franklin; grandchildren Jonathan Cyr of Los Angeles, Jeremy (Anne Claire) Cyr of Nashville, and Beth and Catie Cameron of Nashville; and precious grandchildren, Charlotte and Malone Cyr.
