Obituary

Shea Matthew Harris, 35, of Washington Twp., NJ, sadly passed away on January 6th, 2020. He was a beloved son of Steve and Terry, loving brother of Steven Jr. (Kelly), Shaun, and Samantha. Also survived by his loving grandmom, Marie Harris. He was a cherished grandson of his late grandpop, Bradford Harris, and his late nana and pop pop, Nancy and Earl Renner. In addition, Shea was loved by many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. He was currently residing in Irving, Texas, while employed at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

A 2002 graduate of Washington Township High School, he was a member of the football, wrestling, and baseball teams, as well as, the DECA program. Although Shea was born in South Jersey, he was a “country boy” at heart. Having completed his higher education from Gardner-Webb University in North Carolina, he went on to travel the country (32 states) for seven years playing independent professional baseball with the Bridgeport, CT Bluefish and the Camden Riversharks. His lifetime passion was playing baseball and coaching.

In addition to baseball, he loved all sports, especially golf and fishing. He was a lover of all animals and extremely enjoyed growing his own “Jersey” tomatoes. Shea will forever “HAIL” to his Redskins!

This is shocking and heartbreaking. Shea was a great guy. I was over at the Harris's many times as a kid. Shea was always kind, funny, and cheerful. We played a lot of video games and sports together. With him it was fun regardless of our relative skill levels. I don't have a single bad memory about him. He was just a good guy to be around. All my best to the family in this difficult time.

I will never forget how you said my name with a little southern twang to it. Watching wrestling pay per views and your funny reactions. How I felt special to travel n see you play ball, Our first trip to a “Golden Coral” with some of your teammates and there was the nice quiet table w the Grandparents and the rowdy table and you know which one we were at ! You made us feel special being your fan. And we will always be your Fan, You were the kindest person and you impacted so many with your love of the game and just being you, I’ll be riding the backroads to the country thinking of you and if I could send you some of my pulled pork in heaven I would, and Grandpop would say, “what’s that smell”. I know he will be hugging you soon and talking baseball w his favorite catcher. You were loved so much Shea and you will Never be forgotten, Aunt Sharon

From the day we moved over from Philly and had the good fortune to move in next to the Terry and Steve and family Shea always had a smile on his face and a kind word. We will miss him so much.

Dear Harris Family,
My prayer is that in a time appropriate to each of you, your grief over Shea's passing will morph into the fond recollection of times you shared together.
I met Shea first when he was interviewing with our organization, DFW Valet. I spoke with him regularly. We both loved baseball, sports in general, and the Washington Redskins. Each time I saw Shea he had a smile. I never once heard him belittle or complain about a team member (at any level). He was highly regarded by his co-workers. I am humbled he was part of the tapestry of my life. I am fortunate to have met Shea. I and others here will miss him.
Best wishes as you move forward from this initial challenging period without him.

Dear Harris Family,
There are no words that can bring you much comfort at this time. I didn't know Shea well but I remember how nice he was and what a great baseball player he was. I was the pitcher of the softball team and I still remember cheering for the boys and swapping jerseys during playoffs. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
