Robert Carrington Harris was born on March 19, 1997 to the union of Jerome and LaFaye S. Harris in Canton, Georgia. Robert transitioned to his heavenly home on Sunday, April 22, 2018. At an early age, he joined Omega United Church of God in Christ in Adairsville, Georgia.
“Roberto”, as he was affectionately known to his family, was known for his magnificent smile and his Barry White voice that could change the whole atmosphere. Robert lived life to the fullest during his brief stay here and touched many lives. He had a personality where he did not meet any strangers and was a comedian at heart. Robert loved his family hard and took the role of the eldest son serious. He always wanted to live so his siblings would have someone to look up to.
Robert accomplished many things he wanted to during his life here. He was a graduate of the 2015 Class of North Paulding High School. He was a hard worker and landed his dream job at Salt and Pepper, where he was learning to become chef under Gary Brown. One of his last goals was to be able to purchase a car without a co-signer, which he did succeed to accomplish the earlier part of April 2018.
Robert was preceded in death by his grandmother, Joyce Elizabeth Harris and his aunt Audrey Lorraine Harris. He leaves to cherish his memories: Mother, LaFaye Slaton Harris; Father, Renwick (Natasha) Harris; Twin Sister, Hannah A. Harris; Three Brothers, Devonta B. Harris, Donte J. Harris, and Solomon C. Boykins; Paternal Grandparents, Bishop Billy (Bernice) Harris Sr.; Maternal Grandparents, Reuben (Veronica) Slaton and Edith (Walter) Curtis; Four Uncles, Billy Harris, Jr., Corey Reed, Chandler (Melody) Slaton and Adrian (Niesha) Harris; Two Aunts, Holly Harris and Felecia Slaton; His one true love, TiMiya Butts; His best friend, DJ McClendon; God Parents, Bishop Carl and 1st Lady Sherita Montfort, and his “Road Dog” Daniel Boykins; and a host of loving great uncles and aunts, cousins and friends.
