Fred Harris Obituary

The late Fred Lee Harris was born in Montgomery, Alabama, to the late Mr. Leroy Harris and Ms. Lorraine Lewis on February 19, 1943. Fred went to be with the Lord peacefully on February 18, 2024, at his home in Fleming Island, Florida.

Fred was an only child. He grew up in Montgomery, Alabama, and attended high school there. After graduating from high school, Fred joined the U.S. Army and remained in the Army for a short period of time before joining the U.S. Navy, where he remained on active duty for over 27 years. While on active-duty, Fred earned a Baccalaureate Degree from the University of Maryland and Master’s Degree from National University. After retiring from the Navy in 1989, in Oakland, California, Fred pursued a second career in the auto industry as a car salesman.

He and his wife, Aine, left California in 2002 to take up residence in Fleming Island, Florida, where Fred continued in his love of selling cars. Fred was a very successful car salesman for both Ford and Chrysler, earning many awards including salesman of the year. Fred retired from car sales in 2020 to spend the remainder of his days with his lovely wife, Aine.

Fred possessed an always-inviting spirit. He was soft-spoken with an infectious smile and was loved by so many friends and family. Anyone who knew him loved him. Over his lifetime, Fred was devoted to our Lord and Savior. He was a member of several churches over many years. He was also a devoted Mason.

He leaves to mourn his passing, his devoted wife, Aine, and their dog, Dragon. He also leaves behind a host of relatives, nieces, nephews, cousins, neighbors and friends.

Fred leaves a legacy of laughter and love to all who passed his way. He was a joy to all who knew him. His unfailing dedication and devotion to family and friends will be truly missed.
