March 10, 1949 ~ July 21, 2022 (age 73)


 Gordon Leon Harris of Sweet, Idaho passed on at the age of 73 on Thursday, July 21, 2022.  Gordon was born March 10, 1949 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa to Gorda Evelyn Safley and Lyle Anderson Harris.

 Gordon fell in love with the west and spent an abundance of time everywhere from Alaska to Arizona to Hawaii while calling Idaho home for the last 38 years of his life. He retired from an impressive career in aviation wildland firefighting with the United States Forest Service in 2005. Then he spent his golden years of retirement traveling the country on his Harleys and restoring the 24 acres he lived on to its natural beauty.

 Gordon was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Sharon Laverne Earlywine; step-father, Ted Albaugh, many extended family members he held dear, and several friends who were close. He is survived by his two sons, Ryan and Dustin Harris of Boise, Idaho, and his three grandchildren.

 Funeral services will be held on Saturday, August 20, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. at the Potter Funeral Chapel in Emmett followed by burial at the Sweet Montour Cemetery and memorial reception at the Emmett Fairgrounds 4-H building.

 Gordons travels were far and wide and he will be remembered and missed by many.
