Lasting Memories

Kevin M Harris
July 6, 1957-Dec. 25, 2021
Menlo Park, California

Kevin Harris (age 64) passed away at his home in Menlo Park, California, on Christmas morning, surrounded by his wife and children. He was shocked by his recent diagnosis of late stage lung cancer, as he was otherwise healthy, a never smoker, and a life-long runner. He was brilliant, adventurous, courageous, and profoundly good. Kevin was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, to John and Molly Harris, who both predeceased him. He earned a BA in Archaeology from the University of Pennsylvania, a MALD from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, and a JD from UC Berkeley School of Law. He had a long and successful career as an international technology lawyer with leading technology companies in Silicon Valley and Europe, and also in private practice with major law firms in Silicon Valley and Washington, DC. Kevin married Nancy Cox in 1988, and was the best husband anyone could have for over 33 years. He was a devoted and loving father, raising three beautiful children. He lived with his family in Paris and Geneva from 1996 to 2002, and showed his family the world. Kevin is survived by his beloved wife Nancy, children Virginia, Kevin Jr. and Caroline, sister Cecily Harris, and countless wonderful friends. Kevin loved the redwoods, so in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to
