David M. Harris
November 12, 1949 – November 7, 2019
David Harris was a beloved son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, and much more to the people who were blessed to know him. David was a devoted Catholic, who grew up in the St. Ann Parish. He coached the volleyball team for many years. After graduating from Ryan High School, David proudly enlisted in the United States Navy, during the Vietnam War, where he was trained as a Corpsman, serving alongside the Marines. David worked for Creighton University and the Cardiac Center as an Echocardiography Technician, where he eventually retired after 35 years. David married Sheri on Valentine’s Day 1987 and raised their three daughters Delena, Dayna, Kimberly, and their son, Mark. David and Sheri were later blessed with seven grandchildren. As a father and grandfather, David NEVER missed a dance recital, school event, or any of the numerous sporting events. If you needed to find Dave, just look up in the stands of any of his children or grandchildren’s event; rain or shine, snow or heat advisory, Dave would never miss a chance to watch the ones he loved. It is nearly impossible to list everything Dave did for his family. To name a few, he picked up the kids from school, ran Grandpa Daycare during the summers, and taxied the grandchildren to any practice, game, appointment, or you name it. David was a season ticket holder for Creighton Basketball and Volleyball and truly loved anything Creighton Bluejays, just check his wardrobe. After a long and hard fought battle with a Traumatic Brain Injury, David was called home on the night of November 6, while surrounded by his wife and four children. Dave will be forever loved and missed.
