More detail on this person: BAILEYVILLE AND HOWLAND - James "Jim" Weldon Harris departed us Sunday, Feb. 10, 2013, much as he lived his life, on his own terms. James was born Nov. 21, 1945, in Howland.

He was a determined, strong willed man with a love of flying, hunting and golf. His infectious smile warmed the hearts of many. James was a helicopter pilot and served his country in Vietnam, where he was awarded an Air Medal and a Commendation Medal. He continued his service by training new pilots in the craft he cherished. He was extremely proud when he graduated in 2007 with an associate degree in computer support from Washington Community College by consistently making the deans list.

He was predeceased by his brother, Forest Harris; and sister, Hope Oldenburg. Jim is survived by four children, Diane Primeaux of McKinney, Texas, Karen Duncan of Nashville, Tenn., John Harris of Lincoln and Anthony Harris of Portland. He was also blessed with 10 grandchildren, Courtney, Christopher, Cassidy, Blake, Ashlee, Daniel, Gwenyth, Annaliese, Jillian and Lincoln.

Services will be scheduled at a later date in late May. Those who wish may sign an online guest register and leave written condolences at www.clayfuneralhome.com
