Letter: Fond memories of Dr. Perry Harris

This is written to the residents of Linn County and the family of Dr. Percy Harris:

I am a retired ER nurse and had the privilege to work with this wonderful man. He treated both his patients and victims of medical examiner cases with respect and dignity. I never saw him in a bad mood. He was always wonderful to work with, even in the middle of the night. He was always dressed in a suit and tie with a smile on his face.

I remember when his 12th child was born, the announcement was an egg carton with everyone’s name on an egg.

May he rest in God’s arms. He shall be missed.

Bonnie Canfield
