Obituary for George Hendrick Harris

Mr. George (Georgie) Hendrick Harris, age 77, of Salem, KY left this earth on Thursday, November 29, 2018 at the Ray and Kay Eckstein Hospice Care Center of Paducah, KY.

Born July 13, 1941, he was the son of the late George Harris and the late Mary Charles (Mitchell) Harris. He was a retired businessman and a lifelong member of Salem Baptist church, serving as deacon for many of those years.

Those left to cherish his memory are his wife of 55 years, Linda (Croft) Harris of Salem, KY, daughter Tina (Larry) Tinsley of Salem, daughter Holly (Alan) Plunkette of Benton, sister Kathy Harris of Atlanta, GA. Grandchildren: Sarah (Jeremy) Rowe, Jeremy Tinsley, Blake May, and Karson May. Great Grandchildren: Jagger Rowe and Georgie Rose Rowe.

He was preceded in death by his parents, and grandson Taylor Harris May.

Georgie was a devout Christian and avid family man. Never far from a good ballgame, he was a sports enthusiast and loved the Kentucky Wildcats. As a very respected man in the community, he offered wisdom and council to so many who looked to him for comfort or guidance. He was a very present husband, father, brother, and grandfather and was admired by his entire family; always acting with kindness and love. He walked with the Lord on earth, and now he’ll walk with Him in heaven.

Visitation will be held Friday, November 30, at 5:00 p.m. at Boyd’s Funeral Home in Salem, Ky, and from 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. at Salem Baptist Church on Saturday, December 1.
