Mark Dale Harris, 55, of Chandler AZ passed Tuesday March 17th, 2015 from cancer. Mark, son of Clara Mae Harris and Marion Harris was born in Heidelberg, Germany January 4th, 1960. He is survived by his mother Clara Harris and brother Stephen Harris. Upon his return to the United States of America in the early 60's he was raised almost exclusively in San Francisco, CA. He received is primary education at Anza Elementary School and Roosevelt Junior High. He graduated from Washington High School. He then attended San Francisco City College where he received his degree in Hotel and Restaurant Administration. Following this education he went to work for various hotels. He returned to San Francisco City College where he studied computer systems. This in turn lead to his life long passion and jobs in the hospitality industry. His final and favorite employment was with INFOR where he worked as a Enterprise Solutions Engineer from 2004 to the present.


Mark was a soft spoken man with a heart of gold who traveled the world performing his employment duties and karaoke where he could find it. Along the way he made many friends and built many life long relationships. Among these friends are his karaoke "family". Mark's voice was legendary and joyously received in the many venues at which he performed. But his true passion was singing with his karaoke family at Ernie's. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
