George D. Harrison, age 90, beloved husband of the late Pearl A. (Morrison) Harrison, of East Haven, entered peaceful rest on May 12, 2022, at CT Hospice in Branford, CT. He was the son of the late Harry Harrison, Sr., and Mary (Skojec) Harrison and was born on July 28, 1931, in Bridgeport. George served in the U.S. Navy and worked as a machinist at Pratt & Whitney in North Haven before his retirement. He loved the ocean and started his life living in a cottage right on the beach in Milford with Pearl and his three children. In later years they moved to Port St. Lucie, Florida. The family moved to their final home in East Haven in 1969. George & Pearl celebrated their 50th anniversary with family & friends in 2009. He kept active and throughout his life he enjoyed spending time dancing with Pearl, metal detecting, fishing, playing checkers & being with family. George often shared his memory of how he and Pearl would sing “You are My Sunshine” walking down the street together when they were dating. In recent years, George was known for his daily walks to Dunkin Donuts for coffee.
