They were later married on September 17th, 1960.

Phil dedicated many years of service to ABF before retiring. He found joy in activities like spending time out on the lake, biking, and scootering around town. For the past six decades, Phil called Rye Beach his home.

Phil was preceded in death by his loving wife, parents, son, Phil Harris, daughter, Thea Harris, and his beloved dog, Sox.

In accordance with his wishes, Phil will be cremated. A celebration of his life will take place on Friday, March 22nd, at 3 pm at the Huron Eagles, 2902 Cleveland Rd. W., Huron 44839.
