Joseph Edward (Ed) Harrison died peacefully at his home on Sept. 11, 2020. The son of James Marvin and Lena Harrison, Ed was born in West Virginia on Jan. 17, 1935 and graduated from Moorefield High School and West Virginia University. He was a proud member of the Kappa Alpha fraternity.

He was much beloved by his wife Georgianna Kay (Katy) Harrison; sister Marjorie Collins of GA; brother James Harrison of FL, NY; brother Richard Harrison of NC; sons Joseph A. Harrison of Baltimore and Peter M. Harrison of TX; daughter in laws Kerri Jenkins-Harrison and Shannon Driscoll; grandson Kyle E. Jenkins, granddaughters Katy E. Harrison and Piper S. Harrison.

Ed retired from the Citizens National Bank in 2000. He was an avid fly fisherman who traveled as far as the Bahamas and the Article Circle but most of all loved roaming Pennsylvania country roads in search of trout. He was a loyal Baltimore Orioles fan, an active member of the Clarksville Lions Club, and of Bishop Cummins Episcopal R.E. Church in Catonsville MD.

A memorial service will be held at a future date. In memory of his life and in lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Trout Unlimited or his beloved church Bishop Cummins.

Dave and I were so very sorry to hear of Ed's passing last weekend. I know that Katie and his children will miss hime terribly.
We did not see as much of him and Katie as our children grew up and apart, but we remember him fondly as a good friend, loving father and a great fly fisherman. I know he enjoyed fishing with Joe in his later years, and always enjoyed talking about fishing when we stopped by. Blessings to the family, and our thoughts are with you, Dave and Louise McCann

How Very sad I am to learn of Ed’s passing. Life in Moorefield with the handsome and popular Harrison boys was a young girl’s dream. Margie was to be looked up to by all of us impressionable girls. Life on the hotel porch was to be envied .

Ed will be fondly remembered by us at Simpsonville's branch of PNC bank, and the activities in Clarksville Lions. We always enjoyed talking with him - he showed interest in you, which is a special trait. Blessings to the family, Linda and Ron Shaw

I am so very sorry. I knew Ed from Sandwiches by George. Waiting on him for 14 years. He was a delightful gentleman. God Bless
