Obituary

Robert “Bobby” Harris passed away peacefully October 10, 2020 with his sister Chrissy by his side in his Virginia Beach apartment. Bobby was preceded in death by his Mother, Mary Jane Harris, and Father, John “Jack” Harris. Left to cherish his memory are sisters Christine Smith and Jacqueline Kroth. He will live on through his niece and nephews: Chelsea Smith Justice, David John Kroth, Daniel Ryan Smith, Donovan James Kroth, and Kaz Remington Kroth.

Bobby was born at Portsmouth Naval Hospital and lived in Virginia Beach most of his life. In his early years he enjoyed trips to Pennsylvania to visit his Parent’s families. He also loved skateboarding, fishing, and going to concerts with friends. As a young adult he traveled to Georgia with his father to work on naval ships. He began his early career years working with Aetna Wire as a wire producer.
Bobby’s life was changed when he suffered a diving accident at the age of 26. Against all odds, Bobby had to learn to use his legs again and fought hard to recover from the injury. A walking Quadriplegic is a rare occurrence and Bobby’s determination in getting to this point was known by all who loved him.
After the death of his father, Bobby and his Mother grew to depend on each other and lived in the family home on Constitution Drive for 52 years. They celebrated many family gatherings and enjoyed the companionship of their neighbors and community. Bobby and his beloved dog Hershey would play fetch in the backyard and relax together on the couch.

After his Mother’s death, Bobby lived independently for three years in an apartment. He enjoyed meeting new friends here. Everyone who knows him shares stories about his kindness and generosity. During these years he remained an avid Steelers fan cheering on his team. He also took trips to Nascar Races in Richmond and Dover whenever he could. Bobby kept up with current events and loved his country.
Bobby will be dearly missed by his family and friends. He had long and hard fight against cancer but remained cheerful and had a great sense of humor up until the end. We love you Bobby! Until we meet again!

The family will receive friends from 11:00 am - 1:00 pm, Friday October 16th, 2020 with a funeral to follow at 1:00pm. Burial will follow at Woodlawn Memorial Gardens

So sad to hear about Bobby's passing. Posting three of my favorite pictures. Bobby with his sister Chrissy, that's a good one. With Charlie looking tough in black leather. In Seashore State Park with Leonard and Cherie, Steve and my then girlfriend Karen.

I'm still having a hard time coming up with words here. Losing a friend you've had all your life leaves a big hole. Way too many memories to list

See you on the other side buddy
