Mr. Elliott Norman Harris, age 65. Sunrise March 23, 1957 and Sunset October 18, 2022.

Elliott was a 1975 graduate of Columbus East High School, where he was known for his gregarious personality. After high school he joined the US Navy where he honed his interest in radio operations.

Upon his return to Columbus in 1996 he landed at radio station WSMZ where he became known as the on-air personality, Stormin’ Enorman. He also worked as a music director at WSMZ and later at WVKO. After leaving the air, he founded Stay Relevant Music and in his own words provided “talent for events all over the planet. Artists that might cost you less but provide the best in live music.”

Elliott was preceded in death by his brother, Jeffrey B. Harris and is survived by his mother Joan Harris, sister-in-law, Debra Shanklin, nieces Chenelle Jones and Chevonne Harris and nephew Winfield Harris. He is also survived by his aunt Phyllis Ward who he credited with introducing him to a wide range of music. He leaves behind numerous cousins including Eloise Morris, Ruth (Roger) Hudson, Stephanie Ward, Jenner Barrington-Ward, Victoria (Terrence) Ward-Corbin and Melinda (Ken) Huss. Many friends mourn his passing including special friends Debbie Franklin, Athelia Lewis and Priscilla White.

    Sending condolences to the family of Elliott Harris. So sorry for your loss. I didn’t know him well in high school, but we connected after one of our high school reunions and got to know each other and became friends. Throughout the years we were in touch, just to see how we each were doing. An interesting guy who had a way of making you laugh in his own way. May God bring his family and friends comfort and the peace that passes all understanding.

  6. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.
    May God comfort you through his word the Bible and the Gift of prayer. Thinking of you all.

  7. So sorry to hear of Elliott’s passing. Elliott was childhood friends with my brother Roger Parish as his brother Jeffrey was friends with my brother Jack. They all met at Eastwood Elementary and remained friends through Champion Jr High, East High and after. From a child I remember that he was always cracking jokes and kept people laughing. It’s been quite a few years since I seen Elliott, but I bet he was still the funny guy in the room.

  8. My condolences Stephanie, in the loss of your cousin Elliott Harris. I attended high school with Elliott, but did not form a lasting friendship until some ten years later when we worked together in planning our ten year high school reunion. I really enjoyed our many conversations after that off and on throughout the years. Stephanie, You were a blessing to him and I’m sure he appreciated everything you did for him to the very end as you kept me updated on his failing health. My prayer for you and the rest of his family that God will continue to bring comfort and peace.

  9. May the Lord provide the Harris family with strength and comfort with the transition of Elliott. If the halls of East High School could talk, they would certainly have to say Elliott kept a smile and the laughter echoing through the halls of EHS! Elliott could always bring a smile to your face. I remember Elliott as a great and wonderful person!!

    Prayers and blessings to you all!!
