Douglas Harris Jr. passed into the arms of Jesus on October 1, 2022.

Douglas or Doug as he was called, was born on March 8, 1956 to Douglas and Hattie Harris.

Douglas accepted Christ as a teenager and was baptized at Berean Baptist Church. As a young adult, he united with Temple Church, where he loved attending the early church service and getting the delicious breakfast.

Doug’s first love was Professional Basketball. He was a fan, of course of Michael Jordan, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, and Kobi Bryant. He watched all of the games he could, and he could also answer any question about players and games. He did get to attend a game years ago.

Doug’s second love was professional wrestling. He attended matches and would watch them on “Pay per view”. Right before the Pandemic, Douglas attended a Night of wrestling matches at his nephews, Ian’s Middle School. He enjoyed seeing the matches.

Doug’s other love was going to his nephew’s house for any meal, holiday, and gatherings with family.

Although Doug will be missed terribly, we do not cry too much, knowing he is eternity with our loving Savior, family and friends. He was preceded in death by his brother, James (Dorothy) Phillips.
