La Grange, Tennessee

Floyd Davis “Bobby” Harris, Jr. went to be with his Lord and Savior on October 25, 2023. In Heaven, he is reunited with his wife of 70 years, Jana “Peggy” Harris.

Bobby was born in Memphis, Tennessee on February 14, 1931. He attended Messick School for 12 years where he met Peggy in the 9th grade. He graduated from Memphis State College. Bobby had a 30-year career as an airline pilot. His career began at Southern Airways, and he retired from Delta Airlines at the age of 60. His passion for flying continued long after his retirement.

Bobby was a very active member of First Baptist Church in Grand Junction, Tennessee. His faith and family were most important to him. Bobby also had a love for adventure and traveling. His hobbies included motorcycles, small airplanes, tractors and anything with an engine. La Grange was his home for 45 years. His land and the community were very special to him. He especially enjoyed Saturday mornings at the corner in La Grange drinking coffee with the men.

Bobby was preceded in death by his wife, Jana “Peggy” Harris; his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Davis Harris, Sr.; and his sister, Janice Harris Buchanan. He is survived by his children, Dave Harris, Jana Kearney (Doug) and Jeanne Thomas (Charlie). Bobby was “Grandaddy” to Walt Kearney (Amelia), Harris Kearney, Claire Thomas and Elizabeth Thomas. Bobby had one great-grandchild, Ford Kearney. He is also survived by family members, Bill Ross and Jan Buchanan Cook. His grandchildren will always treasure their time spent with him in “the country”. He was a teacher and role model to all.
