Requiescat in Pace -- Joseph Harris

James Ertner

When my wife, Ruth, and I were vacationing in the U.K. seven years ago, we met Joseph in London. We had a good time exchanging a few puns, so I’m glad I’ll have those memories of him.

What happened? Was he ill? And how did you come to know about it?

While it is neither punny nor contains limericks, this eulogy delivered by John Cleese for Terry Graham seems appropriate to post:

Though the cultural chasm was wide
Twixt the Brits and the Yanks on this side
Of that Pacific pond
Of him, we were fond
And we’re glad he came ‘long for the ride

No longer our Joseph of Harris,

Will charm us with humor so clarus.

His wit so keen,

It never was mean – 

He’d riposte but never embarrass.

All with humorous verses --

Joseph Harris – gone.

    It is with a heavy heart that I report that a long-time member here, Joseph Harris, died this morning.
