Darryl Vincent Harris

August 16, 1966 — May 8, 2023

Abingdon

 

Darryl Vincent Harris (affectionately known by some as “Bunk”) was born (as a twin) on August 16, 1966, to the late Edna Louise Harris. His place of birth was Harford Memorial Hospital in Havre de Grace, Maryland. He departed this life on May 8, 2023, at his home in Abingdon, Maryland.

A lifetime member of Harford County, Darryl attended Churchville Elementary School and South Hampton Middle School as a young child. He later attended C. Milton Wright High School, where he graduated in June 1985. While attending school there, Darryl participated in their sports program. He became a major player on the C Milton Wright’s basketball team. He got an early start as a youth playing with the Dublin Rec team under the coaching of his Uncle Earl Lee.

Darryl was employed by the State Highway in Harford County for 25 years. He also worked part-time at Jackie’s Crab Shack in Abingdon, Maryland for a few years.

Darryl, called by his cousins as the “Mayor of Harford County,” was a man who enjoyed entertaining and being around people. He enjoyed life! Some of his hobbies were watching sports with his brothers and friends, fishing on the boat with his uncles and hunting, but his main hobby was barbecuing on the grill. He was even crowned the “Grill Master” by the Hill family. If you heard him say, “let’s go smoke some meat,” that meant it was time to barbecue. And you could always count on eating some of “Darryl’s Delicious Beef.” His beef was known throughout all of Harford County.

Darryl was a faithful member of the John Wesley United Methodist Church in Abingdon, Maryland until his illness. He attended Sunday school there as a youth. He was baptized at Zion Temple Apostolic Faith Church in Havre de Grace, Maryland. As a member of John Wesley, he worked on the Board of Trustees where he performed many jobs. He was also the “Grill Master” for John Wesley Church.

Much like his mother, Darryl was a no-nonsense person. You would hear him say, “now look, I ain’t for no foolishness.” But no matter what, if you needed him, he was always there to give you a helping hand.

Darryl, your “presence and your beef” will be greatly missed by all who knew you and loved you!

He leaves to mourn: two sons - Darryl Harris, Jr and Jordan Mangones; two grandsons – Daylin Harris and Shia Mangones; two brothers – Gerald (Jerry) Harris and twin Dale Harris; a devoted lifetime friend - Kimberly Pounds; four nieces – Brittany (Buddy) Grey, Shakeisha Harris, Hailey (Jon) Stoecker, and Olivia Harris; one nephew – Dale Harris, Jr (Alyssa); one great-niece and six great-nephews; as well as a host of aunts, uncles and cousins.
