It is regret today that we report the passing of Phil Harrison, author. It is at his request that we do not publish an obituary.
His statement was “If they gave a damn they will know I am dead from word of mouth and if they had wanted to see me, they should have done it while I was alive and not after I’m dead. If you come to a viewing, you just want to make sure I’m dead.” We deleted the final words. “So Bugger off.”
The carving on his memorial stone will include his name and date of birth and death along with the words “Been there, done that and starting another repeat.” This is significant because of his belief in reincarnation. His family vetoed the “If I wanted you to know I was dead, I would have called.” inscription.
