Dorian Lamont Harris, 47, born and raised in South Bend, IN left this physical world on Sunday morning, November 1, 2020.
Dorian was born May 23, 1973 in South Bend, IN to the union of Carol Smith and Willie Harris Sr. Born a twin he wasn’t expected to live longer than 3-days. A fighter from the beginning he lived an interesting yet full life. Securing his GED, he made a decision to turn his life around. Over the past several years he gained experience working for Goodwill Industries and Lippert Components. He wanted better for himself and you could find him posting on Facebook that mediocrity was no longer an option. He was always the life of the party and made sure everyone was smiling and having a good time. He LOVED his family and close friends and spending time with them made him happiest. He was blessed to have 13 children that are left to cherish his memory. Oldest to youngest include Dorian Harris Jr., Dominique Harris, DorRese Harris, Torenzo Williams, Dayona Harris, Doriana Harris, Angel Gilliam, Khristiann Cleveland, Alonzo Cleveland, Deangelo Harris, Da’Mareyia Harris, Da’Nesha Harris and Dorian Harris III.
