Jerry was a member of the VA and Davenport Legion. He loved photography and taking still life photographs, fishing, hunting, playing video games on the computer and gaming systems, and sitting around being a couch potato watching movies. He was happiest when spending time with his loving grandchildren, always making sure they had M&M’s when they visited. He was the worst singer, but that never stopped him. Survivors include his children, Donald Raymond Harris III, Kirk and Linda Lambiotte and Sara (Chad Cooney) Lambiotte; his beloved grandchildren, Blaize Harris, Kirstyn Lambiotte, Riley Lambiotte, Sierra Hodges, Alayna Lambiotte and Chase Cooney; brother, Tom (Martha) Lambiotte; and special friends at the Davenport American Legion. He was preceded in death by his parents and wife, Sherry.
