Joseph K. Harrison, 72, passed away peacefully on July 1st, 2021 with his wife and daughter at his side. Joseph was born December 6th, 1948 in Fairfield, CA. He was the last of six children to Ellen (Frank) Harrison and Willie C. Harrison Sr. He grew up in Vallejo, CA and attended Hogan High school, serving as the first Black Student Body President and Captain of the football team, Class of 1967. He attended San Francisco State University after high school. Joseph worked hard in banking and finance throughout his life beginning at Bank of America, and moving to West America Bank, TCF, US Bank, and ending at Citizens Bank in Superior, WI. Joseph was an avid golfer, active community member, and music lover, but the thing he loved the most was his grandchildren. He would often share stories about his grandkids with anyone he met along the way, and there was no doubt they were his pride and joy. Joseph was a well-loved husband, father, father-in-law, brother, and Gramps. His memory will always be with us, and he will be deeply missed. Joseph is survived by his wife of 40 years, Patricia (Thiesse) Harrison; daughter, Audrey (Travis Knutson) Harrison; her sons, Isaac and Miles; sister, Gwen Pope; brother, Willie (Virginia) C. Harrison Jr. ; and sister, Gilda (Roy) Hammond. He was preceded in death by his parents and his sisters, MaryAnn Robinson and Joan Tabbs.
