Barron Harris Obituary, Death – Barron Harris, one of our participants, has passed away, and we are deeply saddened to have to share this news with you. Pray for his family and for everyone who is involved in Grand Strand Guys in Ties Girls in Pearls. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. Barron will be greatly missed and cherished in our hearts for all time. Harris Barron is an artist as well as a teacher. Harris Barron, who was 90 years old when he died on October 22, 2018, went away in the comfort of his home in Brookline Village, Massachusetts, surrounded by his devoted family. Harris was a well-known artist and educator in the field. He joined the United States Navy after being born in Boston, and by the time World War II was over, he was stationed in Pearl Harbor. In 1954, Harris received his degree from the Massachusetts College of Art,
where he had focused his studies on ceramics. It was at Mass Art where he first became acquainted with his future wife, Ros. Eagle Air was born out of this. Ever since he was a young boy, Harris had a deep-seated fascination with airplanes, flight, and anything else that had to do with aviation. Since 1935, he had a passion for designing, building, and piloting intricate “miniature” aircraft, such as radio-controlled planes. Additionally, he was a member of the MIT Soaring Association for many years and flew gliders and taught lessons at that time. One of the most memorable experiences of his life was a week-long trip in an open-cockpit 1936 Stearman biplane that he took across the United States from Massachusetts to California with a pilot named Frank Scarabino. Harris is survived by his wife of 64 years, Ros,
daughter, Becky Barron, son in-law, Brian Pesetsky, granddaughter, Edan Rain Pesetsky and grandson, Zachary Harris Pesetsky, all of Brookline Village; son, Matt L. Barron and his partner, Anne Wiktor, of Chesterfield, MA; and nieces, Lisa Barron of Singapore, Cristie Barron of Lenexa, KS, Laurie Barron of Orlando, FL, Kerry Barron of Fort Lauderdale, FL, Bobbie Friedman of Phoenix, AZ, and Roni Friedman of Chicago, IL.
