Obituary for Glenn R. Harris

BARKHAMSTED – Glenn R. Harris, 75, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, November 5, 2019 at his home surrounded by his loving family. He was an Englishman, gentleman and handyman. Born on April 17, 1944 in Ninfield, England to the late Queenie and Edward Harris. He crossed the Atlantic twice to Redcliff, Alberta, Canada, once as an infant and again when he was seven. The second time he had a little sister, Sharon, to accompany him. They moved to Ottawa before immigrating to Canton, CT. Glenn graduated from Canton High School in 1962 with many lifelong friends. He served in the Air Force and spent 4 years at Forbes Air Force Base in Kansas. Glenn should have been named Jack as he was talented at many trades. He worked on cars, bridges and boilers to name a few. There was nothing that he couldn't fix around the house and yard. Glenn leaves behind his wife, Barbara O'Connor; his children, Tiffany Roy and husband Scott of North Granby and Brett Harris of Harwinton; and step-children, Adam O'Connor and wife Amanda of CO and Alicia Korik and husband Michael of MA. He was Granddad and Pop Pops to Hunter and Charlie Harris, Jessica and Nicholas Roy, and Sofie and Owen Korik. He also leaves behind his former wife, Patti Harris of FL and his sister, Sharon Woodard of MI and her children, Todd Woodard and Kim Pulver. Many thanks to our treasured friends for their support. We also want to say thank you to Dr. Ellice Wong at West Haven Veterans Hospital.
