Tony William Harris, 78, of Statesville, passed away Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at Mountain Valley Hospice of Yadkinville.  He was born in Iredell County on September 1, 1940 to the late William Espy Harris and Mattie Tomlin Harris.

Along with his parents, he was preceded in death by five brothers, Jigs, Pete, Homer, Dood and Coot Harris and one sister Mary Grace.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Edith; three daughters, Donna Gutierrez (Miguel) of Kernersville, Pam Stroud of Harmony, and Diane Holcombe (Sonny) of Statesville; one son, Adam Harris (Stephanie) of Union Grove; five grandchildren, Madison, Dylan, Sabrina, Dustin, and Jeremy and six great grandchildren, Cody, Easton, Greyson, Ali, Emily, and Kaley.
