Thomas Harris Sr. Memorial Service
On December 13th, 2011 the Del Rey Church was proud to host the Thomas Harris Senior Memorial Service. For those who could not make and for those who would like to watch it again, we have created this web page with the video footage of the memorial and the keepsake bulletin for all to enjoy.
The Del Rey Church would like give our condolences to the Harris family. We are praying for Thomas’ sons and those he loved. We know his companionship in your lives will be missed, so we pray to our heavenly Father in the name of the Son, Jesus Christ, that the Spirit will grant comfort on us all as we mourn this together and as we celebrate his homecoming by the grace of God.

OBITUARY OF THOMAS HARRIS SR.
Thomas Harris Sr. was born on July 13, 1954 in Los Angeles, California to Tommy Harris and Lillie Faye Maroney. Thomas attended 20th St. Elementary, Carver Middle School, Jefferson High School and went on to complete the Job Core. After years of driving buses for the RTD and applying his skills in various other fields, Thomas decided to go back to school to become a Licensed Vocational Nurse, which he completed in 1992. His first job as a psych nurse was at Pine Grove Hospital in the San Fernando Valley. Thomas went on to work at other hospitals, where he made an impact on many lives. Thomas Sr. was very passionate about his job and helping others. His family, friends, and coworkers meant everything to him. He was preceded in death by his mother, father, and two brothers, Paul and Eddie. In his passing, Thomas leaves to mourn, his four sons, Thomas Jr., Allan, Isaac, and Scott. He also leaves behind his four grandbabies, Eden, Seyla, Eliza, and Tru Thomas, his sisters-in-law Dixie and Joyce, niece Paulette, nephews Milo, Barry, Paul Jr., and Mark, along with a host of family and friends.
We thank you for Jesus, for his precious gift of eternal life, and for the comfort of the Holy Spirit. In the midst of our natural sorrow, we thank you for your supernatural grace. In facing death, we thank you for the promise of life everlasting. And in the face of separation, we thank you for the assurance of eternal reunion. We thank you for Thomas’ life here on this earth, and we recognize that his body was a temporary home and now he lives in your everlasting home, awaiting the resurrection. We take comfort in knowing Thomas is with you now, because in your grace you opened his eyes to repent and trust you, so we rejoice that he is rejoicing in your presence and enjoying the blessings of heaven. We look forward to that day, when we can all rejoice in your presence together, and we thank you that we are not without hope or comfort at this time. We thank you for making your presence very real to each family member, and that you will especially strengthen and sustain them in the days, weeks, and months to come.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
