Donald Allan Harrison was born December 20, 1928 to Everett and Onie Harrison on the Harrison homestead, northeast of Lawton, where he later lived.

Don lived in this area all of his life except for a couple years right after high school when he spent time working on his Uncle Tom Harrison’s farm in Craik, Saskatchewan.

He married Marian Washburn on August 6, 1947 and they farmed in the Lawton, Iowa, area for the rest of their lives.

He honed his skills on Oliver tractor repair while working in his father’s farm implement business in the early 1950s.

He loved working on Oliver tractors, farming, fishing, hunting, playing cards, bowling and visiting with friends and family.

He is survived by his daughters: Pamela Clark (Glenn) of Moville; Marla Harrison (Vince Lando) of Portland, Oregon; and Nancy Harrison (Pam Miller) of Sun Lakes Arizona; grandchildren Chris Clark (Molly) of Edina, Minnesota; Sharalyn Clark (Dean Harris) of Omaha, NE; and Charlie Clark (Marcy) of Lawton, Iowa; and six great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Marian; his parents; brothers Morris Harrison and Dale Harrison; and a sister, Carol Green.
