Will Harris passed away unexpectedly from a massive stroke on Christmas Eve this past year. He leaves behind his wife, Laurie, and their two children, son Evan (13) and daughter Lauren (7). They have been residents of Flower Mound for the last 13 years.
For over 10 years, Will worked for Brinker International as a Facilities Manager for many of the Chili's restaurants in Texas as well as some in Oklahoma and Louisiana. He was a beloved friend (and family member) who was always willing to drop everything and lend a helping hand. He was an avid supporter of our troops who routinely sent care packages abroad. In fact, when he passed away, a flag was flown over the headquarters of the Wounded Warrior Battalion at Camp Pendleton in honor of Will (the flag and a plaque were sent to his family). He was an instructor with DIVA WOW which is an organization that introduces women to shooting and shooting sports in a friendly, non-threatening environment. They said that in 10 years, he never missed a clinic.
Brinker has decided to have a fundraiser in Will's honor so that money may be donated to his children's college fund.
On Wednesday, February 26th, ALL of the Chili's restaurants in the greater DFW area (plus some in OK, LA, Longview, and Katy) have agreed to donate 15% of all sales to the WILL HARRIS MEMORIAL FUND. All you have to do is mention it when you are there. When you pay your tab, you can even add an additional dollar amount to go towards the fund.
You never know....these two children could grow to make a difference in your life tomorrow because you chose to make a difference in their life today.
