I had the distinct pleasure of first knowing Bob when we served in the Army at the Presidio of San Francisco in 1970. We kept in touch all these years and got together when we could in Tucson and L.A.. We had so much fun talking sports and Bob enjoyed the Trojans beating Arizona in football while I waited for basketball season. It is so wonderful to have long term friends with such a fun shared history.... A salute to Bob ! Out best, George and Elizabeth Sproles.

Bob's father, John Harris, and my father, John Tanner, worked together at California Federal. Our fathers became good friends, going fishing and traveling together. I met Bob through my Dad and hanging out with their "Brunch Bunch". As others have mentioned, Bob was a huge LA Dodgers fan. He took me to a game one time on Mother's Day - fantastic seats! It was hotter than hell and I got burned to a crisp, but we had a great time! Also, at Christmas time, we would meet in Marina del Rey and drink margaritas and watch the Christmas boat parade. I got married and eventually moved to Nevada, but Bob and I kept in touch through birthday and Christmas cards. When I didn't get a card from him this year, I thought it was unusual, and in doing further research, found that he had passed. Bob was too young for this to happen. He was such a good, kind person. I will remember him always.

I met Bob on my first day on the job at Hughes Aircraft in 1983 and we continued to be friends over the years due to our common sports rooting interests of the USC Trojans and the LA Dodgers. Bob was an encyclopedia of knowledge in these areas and our tax man, Bob Reinhardt, would prepare a sports trivia question for him each year to try and stump Bob at his tax appointment. I don't think he ever did! I enjoyed talking to Bob over numerous lunches even after he retired, we called them MMQB meetings. He also attended USC games with his friend Jack Devlin and they would enjoy sitting in my season seats for USC basketball and drinking at the Founder's Room for pre-gaming. My wife and I will never forget Bob and will always remember what a genuine and decent person he was. I wish him one last Fight On, in heaven!

I HAD THE PLEASURE OF KNOWING BOB FOR AT LEAST 15 YEARS. I WAS HIS LETTER CARRIER FOR SEVERAL YEARS. I GOT HIM INTERESTED IN JOINING THE H.A.R.A. GROUP SINCE I WAS ALREADY A MEMBER THANKS TO MY WONDERFUL FRIEND, LISA TRACY. WE HAD FANTASTIC TRIPS TO LAUGHLIN TOGETHER WITH THAT GROUP. WE HAD WONDERFUL MEALS AT CHICAGO RIBS IN WESTCHESTER WITH OUR FRIENDS LISA AND TOM OKADA. AFTER I LEFT SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA WE STAYED IN TOUCH. I CAME BY TO VISIT WITH MY WONDERFUL FRIEND WHEN I WAS BACK IN TOWN. AND ON THE PHONE, WE'D ALWAYS START OFF WITH THE U.S.C. 'FIGHT SONG' AND END WITH THE CHANT....'GO TROY!' HE MAY NO LONGER BE WITH THE TROJANS HERE ON EARTH, BUT HE IS NOW WITH LOADS ANGELS....IN HEAVEN!

Bob, you were one of the gentlest kindest souls I’ve had the pleasure of meeting on Earth, the Heavens gained a Good one, you will be missed and remembered and my prayer is I can have half the humility you shared with us - I was blessed to spend time with you on Earth-

My deepest condolences to all of Bob’s family and friends and to anyone who knew him. I knew Bob for over 20 years from our Fantasy Football League. There was never a finer or kinder gentleman than Bob Harris. Such a sweet man. He loved football and we both loved talking about our beloved USC Trojans.
Bob, though you are no longer with us, you will never be forgotten. All of us who knew you are the better for it. Rest In Peace my friend.
