John Harris passed away after a sudden heart attack in the early hours of Tuesday, September 10, 2019, at 71 years of age. John served with pride, dedication and compassion with the Hamilton Police Service between 1972 and 2012 when he retired as a Patrol Sergeant. Although John worked in various capacities throughout his service, he always had a fondness and cared deeply for the front line. John leaves behind his loving wife Lori and his family. John's large physique was overshadowed only by his kindness and humility. As per John's wishes, there will be no visitation or memorial service. In lieu of flowers, John had often said that he would have appreciated a donation to the Hamilton-Burlington SPCA. He will be missed by all who knew him.
