Danny Leroy Harris, 63, of Jefferson City, passed away Saturday, November 5, 2022, at Boone Hospital in Columbia, Missouri.
He was born May 30, 1959, in Jefferson City, the son of Raymond Otto and Ruby Lee (Bloomer) Harris.
Danny was a 1977 graduate of Jamestown High School.
He was united in marriage on July 19, 2008, at Shiloh United Methodist Church in Holts Summit to Connie Fay Roney who survives at the home.
Danny was a skilled and motivated entrepreneur throughout his career.
