Lamarr Brandon Harrison was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan to Gary and Ora (Hill) Harrison. Lamarr spent his first four years in Ypsilanti, Michigan where he attended Humpty Dumpty Nursery School. Lamarr was driven to and from school by his grandfather, George Harrison (deceased). Those trips to and from school were filled with many spirited debates.

In 1986, the family moved to Tucson, Arizona. By this time, a new addition had become part of the family, Lamarr’s brother Jonathan. As siblings normally do, they argued constantly. But, because of the love they had for one another, they shared a room, until Lamarr left for college. Lamarr attended Golf Links Christian Academy, Fountain of Life Lutheran School, Booth Fickett Middle School and Palo Verde High School. If you knew Lamarr, you know he left an unforgettable impression at each school.

Lamarr went back to Michigan, where he attended school. While there, he received a certificate of Software Application, from Washtenaw Community College in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Lamarr worked in telecommunications at Old Pueblo Practice Management (medical claims) and, most recently, Banner Hospital Communication.

Lamarr really liked Arizona Cardinal football and Houston Rockets basketball. When it came to politics, he was a vocal Independent. Lamarr loved to laugh and would even perform stand-up comedy.

Lamarr was baptized at Eastside Assembly Of God in Tucson, Arizona. Lamarr spent many years participating in the youth group there. He loved the Lord. Lamarr read the Bible, from cover to cover, several times. He knew the word.

Lamarr is survived by his only child and loving daughter, Brooklyn Harrison; father and mother, Gary and Ora (Hill) Harrison; one brother, Jonathan Harrison; one nephew, Jayden Harrison; Aunts, Dorothy Bow, Mary Harrison-Hayes, Deborah Henderson (Robert), and Deborah Gary (Roderick); Uncles, Ira Harrison (Andrea), and Marvin Miller.

I remember Mrs.Cook's math class. He made it so much fun because of his crazy sense of humor and hers too. They would go back and forth and it was hilarious. I would love going to math class just to see him and her go back and forth.

You came into my life early in my teaching career. I was so blessed to have you in my choir. Your talent, your smile and wit have remained in my memory. I thank God He allowed you to be a part of my life. You were taken away too early but God needed you. My soul celebrates that you are with Him. Rest well Lamarr. Ms. Mims

Lamarr, you always had a way of lighting up a room and bringing laughter to everyone in it. I am so sad that we drifted apart as we entered into adulthood, but I cherish our childhood memories.

I’ll never forget the time you decided to eat a lollipop in big church (knowing full well that you weren’t supposed to have candy during service). Your mom gave you ‘the look,’ but you figured you were safe since she was up on the choir platform, and you were tucked nicely into the center of your pew.

When she came down and ripped that lollipop out of your mouth, I thought we all would die from laughter. She proved to all of us that mom justice will be served no matter the time, place or circumstances. That lollipop didn’t stand a chance.

You were always so grounded in who you were. I admired that about you. We all knew exactly what we’d get when we hung out with you... the truth. Whether we wanted to hear it or not. That’s probably the greatest gift you could have given at such a formative time in our lives.

Lamarr, you will be sorely missed, by those of us who were privileged to have known you. I must admit though, part of me is comforted in picturing you in a heavenly church service, with a big grin on your face..... and an even bigger lollipop in your mouth.

Rest in power my friend.
