Nicholas Ryan "Nicky" Harris, age 9, of Morris, IL, passed on Tuesday, June 25, 2019 from injuries sustained in an accident.  He was born August 1, 2009 to Amy (nee Singletary) and Paul Harris.  He had just finished the fourth grade at Immaculate Conception Catholic Grade School and was starting his summer by enjoying his favorite activities including baseball, football, soccer, golf, basketball and his biggest passion, fishing!  Nicky was a big Chicago White Sox and New England Patriots fan.
In addition to his devoted parents, he is also survived by his brothers, Chris and Brady; grandparents, Charles and Jane Harris and Buck and Judy Singletary; aunts and uncles, Bart and Tiffany Singletary, Alan and Amy Singletary, Roger Singletary, Carl Harris and Marty Huff; and several cousins as well as numerous friends and classmates.
Although his passing has left a void that can never be filled, we find strength and hope knowing others will benefit from Nicky’s gift of organ donation through GiftofHope.org.
Visitation for Nicky will be held Friday, June 28, 2019, from 4:00- 8:00 p.m., at Fred C. Dames Funeral Home, 1201 W.
