Jerry Harris

 

Jerry Harris, 80, of Owensboro, passed away Saturday, January 6, 2024 at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital. He was born in Muhlenburg County to the late Pearlie and Ruby Lee Harris. He was a U.S. Army Veteran and awarded a Bronze Star while serving in Vietnam.

Jerry retired from O’Bryan Contracting following a number of years of service. He was previously employed by Alvey Brothers Contracting. In the 1970’s, he owned Pasquale’s Pizza on Veach Road. Mr. Harris was recognized as an Honorable Kentucky Colonel in 1994. He volunteered countless hours in youth baseball, with much of that being in leadership with West Daviess County Little League Baseball and at Sorgho Playground. He enjoyed being outdoors, gardening, golfing, horse shows, cooking and U.K. Basketball. He loved spending time with family, most of all with his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren who affectionately referred to him as “Grandaddy”. He was faithful to attend their activities, especially sporting events. In all ways, he put others ahead of himself.
