Milton Van Harris, age 75, passed away peacefully early Thursday morning shortly after awaking on April 8, 2021 at his home in Sanford, NC.
He was born in Lee County to the late Milton and Pauline Harris. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister Linda Baker.
After graduating from Campbell University and serving his country in the US Army he went into the Real Estate business and operated Van Harris Realty for the most of his adult life. Van was passionate about Real Estate and loved what he did for a living. He loved coming to his office every day and did so right up to the day of his death. He truly enjoyed seeing and visiting with everyone who came into his office.
He was a devoted father to his children Joshua and Darlene and grandchildren John and William. One of his greatest joys was the role he played in raising his grandson, William.
He loved his home and flower gardens and was a loving husband to his wife Donna. Van was a very happy, contented person and woke up every morning singing.
Those that loved him will miss him dearly.
A graveside service will be held on Sunday, April 11, 2021 at 2:00 PM at Buffalo Cemetery with Jean Smith Ettefagh officiating.
