09/16/1972 ~ 09/08/2017

GARNER – Kristopher Ray Harrison, age 44, passed away Friday, September 8, 2017 serving God and humanity as a flight nurse with the Duke University Health System on the Duke Life Flight team. Kris was born September 16, 1972 in Wayne County, grew up in Mount Olive, NC, and had lived in Garner, Cleveland Community, for the last 19 years.  He was a graduate of Southern Wayne High School (1990) and NC State University (1995).  He earned his RN degree from Wake Tech (1997) and was a proud member of the Duke Life Flight Team for several years.  As an avid sportsman and outdoorsman, there wasn’t much Kris did not enjoy or did not try.  He especially enjoyed Spartan races, mud runs, camping, hunting, all things NC State, and activities that included his daughters.  He was a resident of the Adams Point community where he enjoyed gatherings with friends and neighbors, always having a funny story to tell or a practical joke to pull.  As much as he loved his job and being with friends, he loved his God and his family more. He will be missed by many.

Kris is survived by his wife, Kasey Hobson Harrison; daughters, Abigayle Faith and Lilly Grace all of the home; his father and step-mother, Rev. Frank R. Harrison and Barbara Lancaster; sister, Amy W. Witherington and nephew, Drew Witherington all of Mount Olive, NC; sister-in-law, Jeanne Williams of Pensacola, FL;  and aunt, Judy Beaman Craft of Walstonburg, NC.  Also surviving are his father and mother-in-law, Lynn and Gemey Hobson of Surf City, NC; brother-in-law, Stacy Hobson and wife, Michelle; nephew, Conner Hobson, niece, Caylee Hobson all of Fuquay-Varina, NC; and life-long friend, Dr. Mark Sasser of Mount Olive, NC.

He was predeceased by his mother, Vivian Beaman Harrison of Mount Olive, NC and his brother, Chris Williams of Pensacola, FL.

A memorial service to celebrate Kris’ life, led by the Rev. Almond Warrick, will be held at Cleveland Community Church (C3 Church), 8246 Cleveland Road, Clayton, NC on Friday, September 15, 2017 at 11:00 a.m.  Visitation will follow the service.

An Education Trust has been established for Kris’ girls in lieu of flowers.  Contributions may be sent to Frank Harrison: 118 Ridgecrest Drive, Mount Olive, NC  28365; or gifts may be made to the charity of your choice in Kristopher’s memory.
