The 15th Annual Miller Harris Memorial Golf Tournament

8:30 am - 9:00 am


Miller Harris was born June 19, 1974 with a sweet disposition that was evident from the beginning. At age three he was diagnosed with asthma, and after enduring a regimen of allergy tests to pinpoint his specific triggers, he began his lifelong ordeal with the ultimately fatal condition. Miller was undaunted by the effects of the disease, and his lust for life endeared him to all who knew him.

Regretfully, Miller’s infectious good-natured spirit passed into the hands of Jesus on September 11, 1999, after a fatal asthma attack; Miller was just 25 years old. Miller was a member of St. Paul Southern Methodist Church and participated in Bible Study Fellowship. Those who knew Miller regarded him as an angel, a saint, a goof, a friend, a kind spirit and a loving soul, and he especially endeared himself to Nashville’s singer-songwriters.

Miller held God, family and friends above all else, and if there is a common thread among those who speak of him still, it is that “he could make you laugh.” No doubt he could make you cry too, but his was a selfless and genuinely good heart, and he is sorely missed by all.

The Miller Harris Foundation is a public non-profit 501(c)(3) organization established in 2002 by family and friends of Miller Harris. The Foundation was set up to endow a scholarship at MTSU in the Recording Industry Management program, promote asthma awareness and support other organizations in Miller’s name. The Foundation’s focus ensures that memories of Miller are alive, and collective efforts will continue in his honor. Proceeds from the Annual Miller Harris Memorial Golf Tournament support our charitable endeavors.
