Funeral services are scheduled for Saturday for Jackie S. Harrison, 77, the Halls resident who wandered away from his family near the Halls Walmart. His body was found after a 20-day search led by Sheriff Tom Spangler and Jeremy McCord, search volunteer coordinator. The search involved many volunteers and a Facebook page with 1,700 members. One comment shows the community reaction: “God bless his soul. Didn’t know him but he has forever touched my soul. Rest in peace, Jack.”
Mr. Harrison was a retired auto transmission rebuilder. Survivors include his wife of 37 years, Karen Harrison; children Kim Hoffman, Billy Jack and Sebrina Harrison, Lisa Harrison, Jackie and Eric Taylor, and Shane Harrison; there are eight grandchildren, four great grandchildren and other relatives.
The family will receive friends 5-7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 14, with a funeral service at 7 at the Mynatt Funeral Chapel on Emory Road in Halls. Full obituary here.
