William “Billy” Harris, age 50, of Marion, NC passed away unexpectedly Wednesday, May 5, 2021 at his residence.
He was born October 15, 1970 in Buncombe County, NC to the late James Paul Harris and Elenora Virginia Roberts Harris. Billy had a rough start to his life, but in the last 5 years, had turned his life around. He was blind and his disability held him back from some of the things he would have liked to do, although, he still enjoyed working in the yard and listening to music. He has twin daughters who meant the world to him. He would light up when speaking of them, which was often. He wished he could have played more of a role in their lives.
In addition to his parents, he is also preceded in death by his brother, Lee Harris.
Those left behind to cherish Billy’s memory are his beloved twin daughters, Terri and Tiffany; five siblings, Elizabeth Harris Sides (David Lifter) of Marion, James Harris (Donna) of Morganton, Scott Harris (Angie) of Marion, Randy Harris (Michelle) of Marion and Tammy White (David) of Ocala, FL; and numerous nieces and nephews.
In keeping with William’s wishes no services will be held at this time.
