Nathaniel Curtis Harris, Jr., 61, of Charleston, WV gained his angel wings in transition to heaven February 23, 2021 at CAMC Memorial Hospital surrounded by his family. He was born June 6, 1959 in Madison, WV to the late Nathaniel “Nay” and Wanda Davis Harris.
Curtis started working at age twelve and worked alongside his father and younger brother, Johnny, who was age ten. They built houses in Boone and Kanawha counties for many years. Curtis also worked briefly in the coal mines in 1986. He moved to Atlanta, GA with his uncle, Michael Davis, and worked for Fortnun Concrete and American Concrete driving a cement truck. After being homesick for the mountains of WV, Curtis moved back in 2000. While living in Charleston Curtis met and married Martha Hubbard. He continued driving trucks but moved from driving cement trucks in Atlanta, GA to driving semi-trucks in Charleston, WV. Curtis obtained his CDL and hazmat license. After suffering a stroke in 2018 he had to retire. This saddened Curtis because he could no longer do what he loved doing the most and be one of the “kings of the road”. He was baptized in St. Albans, WV, September 30, 2015.
Along with his parents Curtis was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Elder John W. and Frances Davis, paternal grandparents, Elijah and Lottie Harris, sister, June Harris, and great nephew, Brandon Russell, Jr.
Curtis is survived by his stepsons; Brandon Hubbard (Shania) and Dustin Hubbard (Beth) and stepdaughter, Jessica Hubbard, brother, Johnny Harris, sisters; Debra Harris, Janet Ennis and April Harris, uncles; Aubry Harris (Carolyn), Elder Ronald Davis, Michael Davis (Ellen), great uncle, James “Rudy” Burrell, aunts; Wilma Matthews and Christy Durr (Van), great aunts; Cleo Brown, and Celeste Thurston (John), nephews; Michael McRae, Jason Harris and Keith Harris, nieces; Frances Hamilett and Taylor Harris, Kira Harris, Brittney Harris, Octavia Harris, and Acacia Harris, a host of great nieces, great nephews, cousins and ex-wife, Martha Hubbard Harris.
