Bruce Harris, 64, of Barrington, RI, died peacefully on September 20, 2018 at Maine Medical Center in Portland surrounded by loving family.
Bruce is survived by his wife of 40 years Dana (Littlefield) Harris, son and daughter-in-law Thayer and Ali (DiPierro) Harris of Weymouth, MA, his daughter and son-in-law Elise (Harris) and Nathan Weeks of Berwick, ME, and his granddaughter Amelia Weeks. Born in Bangor, ME, Bruce was the son of Chet Harris of West Falmouth and the late Jane (Rodick) Harris.
