Richard Boyd Harrison


Richard Boyd Harrison, 57, of Bloomington, Indiana, passed in his sleep on August 16th. He was the son of Donald and Marjorie (Stowe) Harrison, born January 4, 1954 in Pasadena, California. He was an avid sports fan, golfer, but most importantly a loving and caring father. Richard was devoted to his job as an Insurance Agent for Farmers Insurance Group and to his morning paper route, where he never missed a day in his many years of work. In his younger years, living in California, Richard played football, baseball, and hockey for the local teams. Richard has continued to carry a love of sports throughout his life, always cheering on the Hoosiers, Colts, USC Trojans, Lakers, and Dodgers. Richard loved volunteering in the community and worked as a Boy Scout leader. Richard has been survived by his children, Nathan Harrison, Wendy Watkins Harrison, Emily Harrison; his siblings, Karen Grammer, Carolyn Hutton, and Sandra Gilberts; and his grandson Luke Harrison. His service will be held on Saturday August 27th at 11 am in Forest Lawn. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the American Heart Association. Donations can be made on their website,
