Thomas A Harrison
August 7, 1954 – August 23, 2021
Thomas ‘the luckiest man you ever met’ Harrison returned his atoms to the universe on August 23, 2021. He was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan on August 7, 1954 to Richard and Betty Harrison. Tom was a Vietnam era veteran and had a teaching degree from Western Michigan University. While in college he met the love of his life Sunnye (Sharen Whitaker) and they married on August 21, 1982. He was a 35 year partner in Express Press Inc., a printing company that was sold in 2019. Tom was the first President of the Civic Association of Port Tampa City and the first male member of the Port Tampa City Women’s Club. Before his cancer he was very active in the Port Tampa community and was a major force in saving the Commercial Bank building and turning it in to the Port Tampa City Library. Tom was a lovely man and will be greatly missed by his wife Sunnye, children: Liza (Conrad), Ryan (Jeannette), Kaitlyn (Scott), Mollye (Katrina), brother Robert and nephews Justin and Jody. He wanted so much to be here for his grandchildren: Meloney, Kristopher, Kade, Ian, Sofia and Sloan but his cancer decided differently. He also loved his chosen sister Fran Diorio and her son Nick. In Lieu of flowers please make contributions to the Humane Society of Tampa. Tom’s memorial will be at Blount and Curry, 605 S. MacDill Ave., Tampa, FL 33609 on Saturday, October 2, 2021 at 3 PM.
