The Moorestown Rotary Breakfast Club recently lost a beloved long-time Board Member and leader Alfred Harris.   Alfred was active in the club, and had senior leadership roles in the Pancake Cake Breakfast, Annual $10,000 dinner, and supplying backpack to Moorestown students of all ages.  Over the years, over 4600 backpacks have helped students in need ensuring they had school supplies on the first day, and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for local charities.
 
Alfred  L.  Harris, age 80, passed away on Wednesday, April 15, 2020 at Jefferson Hospital in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.
 
Alfred was born on September 3, 1939 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to the late Abraham Lincoln  Harris and Mamie Lou (Jeffries) Bush. He was a 1960 graduate of Clarion State College, where he received his degree in History. After graduation, he started his career as an educator, teaching history at the high school level.
 
On September 3, 1960, he married his sweetheart, the late Marquita  Harris, née Holloway, and often stated there was no better gift than gaining a wife on his birthday.
 
He spent a long and fulfilling career in government, working nearly 40 years for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission as a compliance manager before retiring in 2007. After retirement,  Alfred loved spending time with his family and kept busy with various volunteer endeavors including serving many years as an active member of the Rotary Club in Moorestown, volunteering at the Willingboro Public Library, and often donating his time at the Food Bank. As an avid cook, he enjoyed preparing a dish or two for the annual "Men are Cookin'" fundraiser. Occasionally, you could still catch him wearing a well-fitted suit with a crisp tailored shirt and his signature monogram.
Alfred and Marquita were blessed with four children, Lynné Rivers of Willingboro,  Alfred  Harris of Willingboro, Carla Fisher and her husband Maurice of Wake Forest, NC, and Damian  Harris of Trenton. He also leaves behind three grandchildren, Shayla Crooks and her husband Tyrone of Maple Shade, Romeo Rivers of Willingboro, and Ciara Mendez of Willingboro.
 
He was preceded in death by his brother Curtis Jeffries and his sister Martha Lee Bandy, both of Pittsburgh.
 
Also surviving are seven great-grandchildren, Deonté, Olivia, Tye, Kayla, Lola, Alana, and Ava Dawn; one great-great grandson, Ace; nieces Jackie Bigelow, Joyce Bandy and Kim Bandy, and a host of extended family and very dear friends.
 
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, a memorial service will be scheduled at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Alzheimer's Foundation.
