Kenneth Ray Harris
November 11, 1950 – July 8, 2021
Kenneth Ray Harris peacefully passed away at his home on July 8, 2021.
Ken graduated from Reagan High School and immediately joined the United States Army. He served in combat in Viet Nam and was honorably discharged with the rank of Sergeant E-5. He went on to a career in Information Technology in both the public and private sectors.
Some of the people Ken loved most passed on before him and are with him now--his mother and father, Curtis and Evelyn Harris, and his son, Kenneth Curtis (KC) Harris.
He is survived by his adored wife Judy Speer Harris.
Ken fully enjoyed retirement. He loved fishing, sports, cooking, and doing things with the tractor.
Ken lived on a place he felt was his own little slice of heaven here on Earth. He filled it with all manner of furry and feathered friends—including wallabies.
Ken was simply a great guy of the style not seen much anymore. He was a man of his word and a true friend. He was strong in his faith and brave in the face of adversity. He was also incredibly funny and kind-hearted.
We will miss him terribly and carry him in our hearts until we reunite.
Graveside services will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, July 25, 2021 at Cook-Walden/Memorial Hill cemetery in Pflugerville, Texas
In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Wounded Warrior Project.

Ken was the closest thing I had to a dad, and he always told me I was his daughter, we may not have been blood but we were father and daughter at heart. He showed me how a father loves, he was there to encourage me to fight for what I want, give me little pushes when I needed it and celebrate my victories by my side. I will never forget how he could make everyone around him laugh and always had a smile for everyone. I miss him so much and regret not visiting more, but I will always hold our last text message near and dear to my heart. The last thing he said was he loves me. Dad, I love you too!!!!

So many great times growing up with Ken. The memories have been flooding back in the last couple of days. We kept in touch through the internet and I was lucky enough to see him at the park reunions, but I really should have gone out to his place and seen his exotic animals. I regret putting that off. I always thought we would have time in the future. I'm going to miss him. RIP my good friend. I will see you on the other side.
