Stephen Lee Harris died September 23, 2018, at Norman, Oklahoma. He was born May 6, 1958, in Cheverly, Maryland, the youngest of three children born to Grover and Sara Harris.
He grew up in Fayetteville and attended United Presbyterian Church. He graduated from Fayetteville High School in 1976 and then went to the University of Arkansas, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in geology. After graduation, he soon moved to Oklahoma to work in the oil industry.
The writer of an obituary for Harris said, “Stephen departed to the big oilfield in the sky.”
The writer said that Stephen, who throughout school had an acerbic sense of humor, put life quite well when he said: “Hey guys, FYI: If you are reading this then something has happened to me. No worries!!!! It’s been one helluva good ride!!!! Thanks for everything. Live long and prosper.”
