Reverend Malcolm Harris Dies at 74

It is with a truly sad heart, on behalf of the entire Harris family: children, stepchildren, siblings, grandchildren, cousins and other family members that I announce the transition into glory of my beloved husband, Reverend Malcolm Harris.
He entered eternal rest on June 6 in Miami, Fla., at the age of 74.

He fought a good fight of faith throughout his life, and this final fight may have been his most challenging after 15 months of a severe illness.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Ianthe Bird Tucker; sister, Valerie Harris-Pole; and nephew, Steve Bloodman.

Reverend Harris is survived by his loving wife of 32 years, Pastor Teresita Harris; sons: Malcolm Harris Sr., Noel Harris, Pierre Obando (stepson) and Delmore Antonio; daughters: Evangeline Harris and Rochelle Moesch (stepdaughter); brothers: Theodore Harris (Gloria) of England, Charles Harris (Gladys) of Connecticut and Earl Harris of Florida; sisters: ¬Veronica Harris (Antigua), Icilma Harris (Antigua), Ceceile Harris-Porter (New York) and Brenda Harris-Ephraim (New York); and grandchildren: Jamal Harris, Jada Harris, Lebron Harris, Noah Harris, Nicole Moesch, James Moesch III, Lauren Moesch and Jonathan Moesch.

He is also survived by his uncle, Franklyn Challenger; nieces: Beverly Merchant Brown (Miles), Patricia Ephraim (New York), Candice Love (Micah)Texas, Sarah Jean Luxford (England), Megan Harris (Connecticut) and Crystal Archibald (David) of Antigua; nephews: Marc Browne, Lamar Browne, Deshaun Challenger (Antigua), Everton Harris (Germany), Carl Harris (Denise) of New York, Vern Harris (Valerie) of New York, David Luxford and Delroy Luxford of England and the Philo family in Antigua, Canada and the United States.
