Obituary

Eric Lamar Harris of Lake Peekskill, New York, was born on May 24, 1952 in White Plains, New York. He passed away on Monday, February 17th, 2020.

Eric graduated from White Plains High School; Williams College in Williamstown, Ma with a B.A. in Political Science; and received his Law degree from Syracuse University College of Law in Syracuse, NY. He spent his working career as a litigation attorney with expertise in personal injury/insurance litigation as plaintiff and defense counsel. Eric acted as Arbitrator for City of New York (Bronx County). He was the former President of the Association of Black Lawyers of Westchester County, Inc and a former Member of the Grievance Committee-9th Judicial District (NY).

Eric was the son of the late Lamar Harris and Edna Mae (Black) of White Plains. He was the beloved partner to Paola Sergi and her children Julia, Alex and Joseph of Lake Peekskill, NY; the devoted father to Jonathan Harris (Danielle) of Herndon, Va and Jacqueline Harris of Manhattan, NY. He was the loving brother of Philip Harris (Joy) of Carmel, NY, Lorne Harris of San Francisco, California and Vernon Harris (Michelle) and cherished godfather and uncle to Justin and Hunter Harris of Poughkeepsie, NY. He is also survived by many dear friends.

Eric spent his spare time listening to classical music, reading and working out. He experienced the greatest pleasure on the tennis court. Everyone who knew Eric, and anyone who was blessed to meet him, even if only one time, would agree that he had a huge loving heart, a laugh so unique and joyful, and the most beautiful and contagious smile that lit up any room. His gentle kindness and compassionate sensitivity was felt by each and every person he connected with. And the love, pride, and tenderness he had for his friends and family was immeasurable. Eric touched the lives of so many people. He was truly loved and will be deeply missed.

The family would love to have you join them to bid Eric farewell this Friday, February 21, between 5 and 7 pm at Lee’s Funeral Home, 160 Fisher Avenue in White Plains, New York 10606.

The Smalls family extends our deepest condolences to the Harris family.
My friendship with Eric started some fifty-three years ago at Highlands Junior High School on the wrestling team. He was a tenacious competitor, very cerebral and always supportive. He always inspired me to achieve more and not to settle, challenge authority when necessary but always come prepared to stand your ground. These same lessons learned from him I’ve conveyed to my own children as I guided them through adolescence and into adulthood.
I will miss his smile, his directness, his sometimes funny attitude but above all else his fearless demeanor.
I know he is resting well in Gods arms, as his ascension was warranted in heaven, for he has earned his wings
May Gods grace embrace you at this time and his mercy ease your sorry with the loss of a your loved one.

Eric was a wonderful being, a good friend from the first moment I met him after hearing Wagner blasting across freshman quad, I knew there were some souls in that cold place who were warm. He always always buoyed me and was a refuge when I was warred upon - one of the good brothers. I am so grateful that he kept the connection and shared parts of his journey with me. Yes a scholar and athlete who embraced the range of his knowing and being without apology.We were grown before we were grown and he was a fellow warriors. His ever affirming spirit was example and inspiration. When life struck me down and paralyzed me, he reached out and made sure to stay in touch, when others abandoned and rejected me. I wanted him to write as he loved to read. I am very very grateful that he existed and that I got to know some of him through the years. He was a friend from a time when many did not know how to be, a mighty good man, a mighty, mighty good man. He made this journey brighter, easier. My deepest condolences to his beloveds. Blessings to you all, blessings on his generations.
