Clair E. Harris
Clair E. Harris, 89, passed away Feb. 23, 2019.
Clair grew up in White River. After serving in Korea and marrying his soul mate, Bonita Prokop Harris, he built a career with the USDA, traveling South Dakota, working with farmers and ranchers. Bonita and Clair eventually settled in Custer, on a small ranch where he enjoyed spoiling their cows and riding his ATV around the ranch.
Clair was a loving father and grandfather, a dapper dresser, a friend to all he met and described as a true gentleman. He enjoyed playing horseshoes, whistling, and loved spending winters in Arizona after retiring.
Grateful for having shared his life are his wife, Bonita; daughters, Sheri (Ray) Webster of Custer, and Jane (Lester) Wise of Monroe, WI; six grandchildren; and numerous great-grandchildren.
A Celebration of Clair's life will be held at a later date.
Arrangements have been placed in the care of Chamberlain McColley's Funeral Home.
