Sam Harrison



Sam D. Harrison, 80, passed away at his home near Goldendale on July 6, 2012 after a valiant two year battle with cancer.

He was born October 8, 1931 in Cedar Falls, Iowa to Donald R. and Inez (Dewey) Harrison.

After spending his early life in Iowa, his family moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado. He graduated from Colorado College. His many interests were reflected in the varied jobs he had. These included: dance band manager and trombonist, athletic coach ranging from Little League through high school, Chamber of Commerce manager, hotel executive, and account executive for television and radio stations. Sam said he “got paid for having fun”. He enjoyed a lifelong involvement in music and had a keen interest in sports, history, and politics.

Sam is survived by Twyla (Hoskins) Harrison, his wife and best friend for 54 years; son Morgan R. Harrison (Joanna) of Carson City, Nev .; daughter Kelly Sue Harrison of Goldendale; and grandson Donovan R. Harrison of Carson City.
