    Wayne Harris

    Wayne Harris, 89, passed away peacefully on June 3, 2018. He will be remembered by many in the Paso area as the City’s downtown Santa Claus for nearly 30 years — bouncing children on his knee, and then a generation later their children. He was active on the local scene as a contributor and docent at the Pioneer Museum. One of the thrills of his life was to serve as Grand Marshal in the 2008 Pioneer Day parade.
