Obituary of Keith Shelby Harris

Keith Shelby Harris of Atlantic City, NJ on February 1, 2021, Keith unexpectedly passed away in his home. Born in Queens, New York on December 3, 1957, Keith was the son of Emily Wanda Harris (Wilson) and James Harris. He was the family historian and the cousin who kept in touch with all the other cousins…never forgetting a birthday or holiday or just a call to check in, stopping by to say "hello" or the one to bring a pot of soup by when you were sick.

Keith attended Howard University and graduated from Stockton University. He was a faithful member of Asbury United Methodist Church where he served as President of the Trustee Committee and sang on the choir. He loved God, his family, his fraternity Omega Psi Phi, and his fur-baby, Tiffany. Keith will be deeply missed by his family, friends and all who knew him. Our comfort comes from knowing that he is at peace, his struggles are over, he's resting with God.

Keith is predeceased by: his parents, and his maternal grandparents, Emily Irene Cheatham and Shelby Cheatham. Keith leaves many cousins to cherish his memory and especially his aunt and godmother, Julia M. Wilson.

Graveside services will be 2PM, Thursday, February 4, 2021, in Egg Harbor City Cemetery, Moss Mill Road, Egg Harbor City, NJ.
