1 thought on “Harris, William W.”

  1. My brother William Wilbert “Sonny” Harris – a few called him Bill but he was Sonny to all his immediate family and Friends. I am his baby sister Karen Harris. Sonny had 2 other sisters that he was very close to , Mary and Peggy Harris. Sonny’s Father was William Clinton “Bus” Harris and his Mother Elsie Jackson Harris both from the Williamsville, Mo area.
    Sonny had 3 maternal Aunts Lucille, Jane and Gladys Jackson who all treated him like their own Son. Sonny was much older than me growing up but he was so great to me!! Larger than life and I always cried myself to sleep when he had to leave. Once on our farm near Wapapello Lake, i was having a tea party with my dolls and Sonny surprised me and joined us… one of my happiest moments. There is a big piece of my heart that is missing now that Sonny has passed. I will always miss him.

    My hope is that he is with our parents sisters and all the HARRIS/JACKSON/JARRET/BOYER family who passed before him and loved him so much.
    Sonny i will always love you with all my heart!!
    “Your Little Sis” Karen
