Tribute & Message From The Family

Acie T. Harrison, 81, of Baytown, Texas went to be with Jesus on Friday, June 27, 2014. He was born and raised in Jasper, Texas the youngest of five children. Acie moved to Baytown as a young newlywed with his wife June Roach Harrison, after leaving the U.S. Air Force. He was stationed in Japan during the Korean War, where he was an airplane mechanic.
Shortly after moving to Baytown, Acie was one of the first 6 men hired to work at U.S.I. Chemical Plant. He spent 35 years working mostly in operations. Acie was the last of the first 6 to retire. He greatly enjoyed his second career transporting Veterans to the V.A. Hospital where he made many friends.

At 6'4" he was a strong loving husband and father with a special place in heart for small animals. If you ever happened to be at his home at dusk you would see the abundance of raccoons, squirrels, birds, and other critters that depended on him for supper. Some he even hand fed. He loved everything about God's nature. He enjoyed hiking, canoeing, and camping outdoors. He was always looking for adventure treasure hunting, gun collecting, and reading Texas history. He loved reading all non-fiction and read the Bible cover-to-cover many times.

Acie is survived by his wife, June, of 58 years; their two daughters Rhonda Harrison Tierney and Jana Harrison; his son-in-law Luke Tierney, granddaughter Aileen Tierney, and many loving pets, especially Little Boy.

Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, July 1, 2014 at 11 AM at Crespo and Jirrels Funeral Home. Interment will follow at Memory Gardens Cemetery.
