Glen Reynold Harris

Glen Reynold Harris, 83, retired farmer/stockman, died October 20, 2021 at his rural South Haven home following a 15 year battle with multiple myeloma.

Glen was born December 5, 1937 at the rural farm home in South Haven to parents John Edward and Ruth (Hanson) Harris. He attended a one-room school 1 ½ mile from his home until fourth grade at which time he enrolled in public school in South Haven. He graduated in 1955 from South Haven High School where he was active in football, basketball and track. Glen then attended Oklahoma A & M Tech, graduating in December 1957 with majors in Diesel Mechanics and Diesel Engines.

On June 28, 1957, Glen married the love of his life, Sue Jean Kufus, at the South Haven Methodist Church. This past June they celebrated 64 years of marriage. In December of 1957, Glen and Sue moved to Dodge City where he accepted a position with the Caterpillar dealership. In May of 1960, Glen had an opportunity to be his own boss and they moved back to South Haven where he owned and operated the Cities Service Station. In 1964 he began his farm and cattle operation which he continued until being diagnosed with multiple myeloma.

Glen was a long-time member of the Assembly of God Church in Caldwell, KS where he served on the church board. He was also active in the South Haven community having served on the school board and the South Haven Fair Board. Glen's faith was an important part of his life after accepting Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior while living in Dodge City. He continued as a believer until the day he died.

Glen was preceded in death by his parents, his in-laws George and Erma Kufus, his brother Ben and sisters Wilda Crumley and Katherine Walker. He is survived by his wife, Sue Jean, of the home, daughters Denise (John) Showman and Lori (Kevin) Fitch of South Haven, Julie (Tom) Hardin of Grand Prairie, TX, and son Chad (Kistin) Harris of Wichita, KS.
