Tributes

Dad was a hard worker and provider for his family. Among the life lessons remembered was this: the best way to get rid of an unpleasant task is to finish it. Bill, you finished the race and are now enjoying a victory lap around the Throne! Your "tent" will be treated with respect but *we* know you are not here.

I’m so sorry to hear the passing of Mr.Bill. I remember growing up at the church in Oxnard. and how he would lead singing at times. He was a seeet and caring person. I always remember him smoking his pipe after church in the parking lot. May you all have peace !

Brother Harrison is a vital portion of my childhood memories of the Oxnard Free Will Baptist church. In his many roles in the church and singing in the quartet with my dad, he was always a very visible reminder of his faith and devotion as a Christian. I have always had great respect for his example. I am sending prayers for Sister Mae, Mike and Mark. Peace be with you all.

Bro. Harrison was a vital part of the Oxnard church. My earliest memories were of him, Merle, Bro. Davidson, and Annie Barker singing in the church. He was truly a pillar and supporter of the church and each pastor serving in the church. May God bless you, his family,with wonderful memories of his life this week and in the days to come. Rest in God’s arms until we are all reunited. Love margie

Bill always had that pleasant smile. I will think of him working in his yard. He and my husband enjoyed helping each other with tasks that needed two heads and four hands. My condolences to his wife and the rest of his family.

My grandfather introduced me to the Pacific Ocean exploring the channels and coastline of Oxnard, Ca on his runabout boat. And as a boy, for me, this was the beginning of what would be a life long love, relationship and duty with the sea. He taught me about boats and safety on the water and going at a safe speed. At the age of 18, I joined the United States Coast Guard-searching and exploring, and driving boats and ships all over America’s coastlines and territorial seas. I am still loving everyday on the water with 17 years of Active duty service. Thank you Grandpa for the influence that you had on me and the heritage that you left me. Grandpa, you are now with the One that even the winds and the seas obey!. That is where we find our comfort. We will miss you. Sean and Tina Harrison
