James Harris
STANFORD - James C. Harris, 82, former Lincoln County sheriff and Stanford mayor, died Friday at his home, 110 Oakwood Drive.
The city's reservoir was named in his honor because the effort to build the 326-million-gallon lake started during his term as mayor. The lake was dedicated in 1990.
Harris was appointed mayor in July 1980 to fill an unexpired term. Then he was elected in 1981 and served until December 1985. When he was appointed, he gave his philosophy about being in public service. ``I always like to lay my cards on the table face-up. Then there's no misunderstanding afterwards,'' he said.
He was Lincoln County sheriff from 1959-62 and 1967-70.
"He did an outstanding job with the city," said current Mayor Jack Withrow, who was on the City Council when Harris was mayor. "He was a really fine man. I really enjoyed working with him."
John Sims, former county judge-executive, was sheriff when Harris was mayor. ``He was one of Lincoln County's better citizens. He was very active in a lot of things,'' Sims said. ``He was a super nice guy.''
Born Feb. 20, 1914, in Lincoln County, he was a son of the late James Anderson and Jennie Pepples Harris. He was a farmer and had been active in the Lincoln County Farm Bureau, the Democratic Party and had served on the Lincoln County Fair Board. He was a member of Stanford Christian Church.
Survivors include his wife, Eleanor Campbell Harris; a son, James Reuben Harris of Stanford; three daughters, Martha Harris Bastin of Tallahassee, Fla., Jane Harris Saufley of Danville and Linda Harris Best of Lexington; eight grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.
