Harrison, John - Tyler  
A memorial Mass for John M. Harrison III, 67, of Tyler, will be held on Friday, Dec. 19, 2014, at 2 p.m. at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. The Rev. Timothy Kelly will be officiating under direction of Stewart Family Funeral Home. Mr. Harrison went to be with his Heavenly Father on Wednesday, Dec. 10, 2014. John was born Aug. 21, 1947, in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota, to the late John M. Harrison Jr. and Margaret Mary Rielly Harrison. John was preceded in death by his brother, Michael W. Harrison. He is survived by his loving family including wife, Susie, of Tyler; daughter, Shelly Harrison Ayria, of Tyler; son, Matt Harrison and wife Adriana, of Rancho Palos Verdes, California; two grandsons, Kamron and Kobe Ayria, of Tyler; one granddaughter Charlotte Harrison, of Rancho Palos Verdes, California; sister, Jane Spence and husband Perry, of Tyler; and numerous nephews and nieces. John was a graduate of John Tyler High School and Texas A&M University in College Station, where he majored in industrial engineering. He was the epitome of a "self-made" man beginning as a welding inspector for various companies, then piping inspection, which included working on the Alaskan pipeline and forming his own inspection company that led him to Edison International in Irvine, California, where he became interested in managing the construction of power plants. By this time, he was sometimes called "Rambo Harrison" for getting things done right! He spent 20 years in Southeast Asia managing the construction of projects in Paibon, Indonesia, Luzon, Philippines, Namtun II in Laos and a second project in Cirebon, Indonesia, where he had worked his way up the ladder to president-director of P.T. Cirebon Electric Power until he retired in 2010 and moved to Tyler to be near family. However, John's greatest accomplishment was his love for his family and friends. He treated each person he met with kindness and respect. He will be forever missed by his family and friends and all who knew him. Our family would love to thank The Hospice of East Texas Foundation, 4111 University Blvd., Tyler, 75701, and Alzheimer's Alliance of Smith County, 211 Winchester Drive, Tyler, 75701, for all the love and amazing support that we received. Donations to these organizations will be greatly appreciated in memory of John.
