Gilmore Harris death, obituary: ‘Mayor of the airport’ Gilmore Harris died October 9, 2019. He was 50 years old.
Harris, whom some referred to as “Happy Gilmore” and his family simply called “TK,” is survived by his parents, Moses and Myrna Harris; his sister, Yonnie Harris; and his grandmother, Matilda Sisusa. Services have been held.
Harris was born April 21, 1969, in Grand Bassa County, Liberia. During the 1970s, Harris and his family immigrated to the United States when he was 6 years old.
Harris’ family settled in Staten Island in New York, and Harris attended Brooklyn Technical High School where he studied aeronautics. Harris went on to work at the New York Public Library for several years before he moved two decades ago to the Twin Cities.
Beloved Harris had undergone the challenge of obtaining a green card to live in the United States. He was finally able to get the permanent residency document in 2016.
Please say a prayer for his grieving family. May his soul rest in perfect peace.
