January 30, 1958 – February 12, 2013

Alan Dean Harris, formerly of Bedford and Davenport, IA, a loving husband, father, brother, uncle, friend and practical joker who put family first then golf and then work, left us too soon at the age of 55 on February 12, 2013. He leaves behind his wife of 33 years, Jackie; sons, Ben and JJ; daughter, Kristen and fiancé, Shane Ryan; brother, Dennis and wife, Cindy; and sister, Valery; sister-in-law, Sandy; and numerous nieces and nephews.

He will be remembered for his sense of humor and sharp wit. We will celebrate the man he was and the people he taught us to be. See you on the back 9!

He was preceded in death by his parents, Drs. Will and Katie Harris; and brother, Dr. Dan Harris.

A funeral service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 17, 2013 at Brown-Wynne Funeral Home, 200 S.E. Maynard Road, Cary, NC 27511.
