Howard Lawrence Harrison, 73, of Louisburg, died Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2013.
Howard was son of the late Edward R. and Mattie Lou Ransdell Harrison. He was preceded in death by his sisters, Mary Helen Harrison and Jeanette Horton and his brother, Edward Harrison.
Howard is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Peggy P. Harrison; son and daughter-in-law, Scott and Jenny Harrison of Castalia; daughters and son-in-law, Pam and Stan Jenkins, of Wake Forest, and Shannon Nottingham, of Youngsville; grandchildren, Sarah Jenkins, Madelynn Phillips, Tabitha Jenkins, Caelan Nottingham, Jacob Harrison, and Grace Harrison; and great-grandchild, Chloe Harrison.
Howard was an excellent, caring husband, father, grandfather, and father-in-law. He retired from GlaxoSmithKline where he made many lasting friendships. Howard enjoyed traveling, playing golf and spending time with his children and grandchildren. He was a strong Christian man who loved the Lord and his church. He served as an active deacon at more than 30 years. We are sure that he will hear the words, “Well done thy good and faithful servant.”
Funeral services were Jan. 12, at Ransdell Chapel Baptist Church. Burial followed in the church cemetery.
The family would like to thank Bobbie Murphy and Autumn Care of Nash for their excellent and loving care.
