JUNE 11, 1962 – FEBRUARY 18, 2023


A memorial service for Russell Harrison, age 60, of Nacogdoches is scheduled for 11:00 a.m., Thursday, February 23, 2023 at Grace Bible Church with Pastor Brent Bullard officiating. Visitation will be from 10:00 a.m. up until service time at Grace Bible Church.

Mr. Harrison passed away February 18, 2023 at his home. He was born June 11, 1962 in Austin, TX. Russell worked as a Pet Food Plant Manager for TFP Nutrition from 1998-2017 and later served as Vice President of Sales for Extreme Dog Fuel from 2017 until present. He had a passion for the outdoors and enjoyed fishing and hunting through the years with friends and family. Russell was an avid runner and would participate each year in many 5K’s, half marathons, or full marathons. His devotion to the Lord led him to serve in many ways at Grace Bible Church through the Crosspoint meal team, men’s huddle group leader, small groups and any area that needed help.

Russell is preceded in death by his father, Harold Lynn Harrison, and step-father, Jack Norman Brinkley. He is survived by his wife, Susan F. Harrison, four children and spouses, William Harrison (Lana), Leslie Harrison (fiance’ Tim Ford), Jamie Wood (Chad), Justin Jones (Kelsey); their ten grandchildren: Reid and Rhett Harrison, Alyssa and Clay Wood, Adalia, Breanna, Jameson, Cassidy, Dallas, and Georgia Jones; mother, Frances R. Brinkley; sister, Diane Harrison; aunts, Dora Hightower and Rayma Harrison, and a host of cousins, nieces, and nephews.

The family would like to give special thanks to Dr. Matthews George and his staff, Dr. Jonathan Polk, and Dr. Mark Cline, as well as Heart to Heart Hospice.

If desired, memorials may be made to Grace Bible Church.
