Harrison’s favorite t-shirt read, “My Favorite People Call Me Dad.” Harrison was a compassionate and loving soul, who would have saved the whole world if that were possible.

He loved the majesty of God’s creation. He served an honorable mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Philippines, Cavite mission and had a deep and abiding love for the people of the Philippines, as well as Filipino food! Harrison graduated from Olympus High School in 2013 and attended Utah Valley University.
