In Memory of




Obituary for James Riley Harrison

James Riley Harrison, 58, of Scotland, Arkansas departed from this world on Sunday, October 11, 2020. He was born September 11, 1962 in Little Rock, Arkansas to Dorothy Jacobs Evans. James was a licensed gun smith and tattoo artist. He was always working on some kind of small appliance, something electrical, or a vehicle; most would say James was a Jack of all trades. He was deeply passionate about animals; if there was an animal that needed love and care, he was the man for the job. James will be deeply missed by all who loved and knew him.

Left to cherish his memory is his mother, Dorothy Evans; siblings, Paul Christopher Harrison, step-sisters, Mary and Stacy Calhoun; grandmother, Evelyn Jacobs; aunt, Pat Anderson; uncle, Rick Jacobs; nieces and nephews, Brandon Kloss, Sommer Harrison Mallett; friends, Jerry Ditmore, Mike Davis, Billy Gardner, Chris Jones; special cat, Nanner and the rest.

James is preceded in death by his sister, Barbara Harrison.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, October 31, 2020, 2:00 p.m. at the Scotland Baptist Church.
