Augustus "Gus" Clement Harris

1939 ~ 2022 (age 83)


Augustus Clement Harris aka "Gus", born May 15, 1939, to the parents of Anna Louise and Carl C. Harris of Linganore, Maryland. He was preceeded in death by his parents and brothers Daniel Harris, Harold M. Harris

After High School Gus joined the military and served 4 years in the Army Reserve.  Upon leaving the military he worked in construction  and shortly thereafter opened his own construction company,  Harris  Excavating. 

In his leisure time, Gus enjoyed taking cross country motorcycle trips with his close friends. Gus would often be found  tinkering in his garage and working on his equipment. He loved fishing and horse racing but his true passion was his unique vehicles and heavy equipment. 

Anyone who knew Gus will say, he had a "kind and giving heart".  His generosity goes without saying. He supported friends and family unconditionally and never asked for anything  in return. He was loved by many.  

He had a great sense of humor. You would often hear Gus say "lordy be Miss Agnes", "Do What" or "you're a bad dude" during any conversation. 

He leaves to cherish his memory; his loving wife Ruby Perry-Harris, his daughters Vickie (Sherwin) Mukes, Vanessa Harris, son Eric Harris and stepson Brandon Perry, grandson Eric Harris, siblings Carlwell C. Harris, Isabel L. Harris, Judith A. Hill and Bruce M. Harris, along with a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws, and friends.
