Charles Spencer Harris

April 22, 1941 — December 19, 2022

Charles Spencer Harris, 81, went to be with the Lord from his home in Ooltewah on December 19th. He was a retiree from TVA as an Aerial Photographer for the Mapping Division. He was even better known as a passionate Civil War historian and renowned author of Civil War History. He is the proud son of the late Martin and Lou Harris. He is survived by his wife Teresa Harris, his brothers Martin Harris and Dr. Richard Harris, and his children, Stephanie Bell, Jenni Puckett and Jon Chadwick. He was a loving father to those 3 (plus 2 fur-babies), Grandfather of 11 and Great-Grandfather of 3.

His zeal for life was contagious. His dedication to meaningful friendships and life-long relationships was unparalleled. His commitment for artistic perfection via photography and wood-working was a sight to behold.

In his infamous heartfelt words, he would express to each of you to Keep Your Powder Dry.”
