Geneva – Russell L. Harris, 70, was reunited with his loving wife Nancy, after a courageous battle with cancer.  He died peacefully at his home on May 18, 2014, surrounded by family.  Friends are invited to attend a Memorial Service, which will be held Thursday (May 22nd) at 10:00 a.m. at the Seneca Number Nine Presbyterian Church in Stanley, where Russ was a member for the majority of his life.
 
Russ was born on April 11, 1944 in Geneva, NY, and was the son of the late Alfred C. and Ethel Grace Wimble Harris. Russ was a 1963 graduate of Geneva High School.  After high school Russ worked on several family farms before taking a position at Agway, where he serviced and installed oil-fired boilers. Some time after, Russ accepted a position at New York State Electric and Gas Company in Geneva. He was the go-to person if something needed to be fixed.  He had a long, successful career at NYSEG and retired in 2002 after 30 years of service.  He was a lifetime member of the Stanley Fire Department. Russ believed that there was nothing better for people than to be happy in their work.  He loved to farm and enjoyed everything about farming.  After his retirement from NYSEG, he went on to work at the NYS Agriculture Experiment Station where he continued this love.  He found great joy in spending his final days planting peas, and even took a trip to PA to help consult in an equipment purchase.
 
Russ was married to the love of his life, Nancy, for 48 years.  He built the home where together they raised their family.  They were blessed with two wonderful sons and daughters-in-law, and five grandchildren.  He was most proud of being a Papa. 
 
Russ was hard-working, and instilled the same in his family. Russ was always willing to lend a helping hand to neighbors, family and friends. He had a great sense of humor and always had a good story to tell.
 
Left to honor Russ’s life and mourn his death are his sons, Mark (Julie) Harris and Kenneth (Jennifer) Harris; grandchildren, Leah, Emma, Maxwell and Jackson Harris; brother, William Harris; sister-in-law, Florence Dyer; nephews, William Dyer of Florida, Michael Harris, Steven (Ashley) Harris of Geneva; and great nieces Makenna and Natilee Harris.
