Judge Harris Dies Of A Heart Attack

Death wrote  sudden end late Wednesday afternoon to the career of 43-year-old Islip Justice of the Peace Thomas D. Harris who succumbed to a heart attack at his home on Fairway West in Sayville. The much decorated World War II veteran, who entered politics three years ago, attended an outing with the Lions Club of Bay Shore at Ocean Bay Park, Fire Island, earlier in the day. After he left the ferry in Bay Shore, he complained of feeling ill and was driven home by a friend, Frank Gross, of Candee Avenue, Sayville. He died shortly after five p.m. despite efforts of the Sayville Fire Department rescue squad which was called to administer oxygen. Judge Harris, who was elected for a four-year term in last November's election, suffered a severe heart attack about 11 years ago, the result of injuries received during the second World War. He was felled by a second attack five years ago, but made what appeared to be a good recovery. Judge Harris first came into the political picture three years ago when he was appointed as a Justice of the Peace to complete the unexpired term of James F. Willis who had been elected Islip Town Supervisor. The appointment came after the battle for the post with Bayport attorney George F. X. McIerney, the present Islip Town Attorney. In 1953, Judge Harris was elected to finish out the original two year term and last November was reelected to the post. In February of this year after the spotlight of State Investigation Commissioner J. Irwin Shapiro was focused on Islip Town, he was among the Republican officials who accused the Democratic commissioner  of making rash statements. Later Judge Harris was the first to admit that the charges were not entirely political and moved to have a resolution passed by the Islip Town Board condemning Mr. Shapiro's report expunged from the record. Though his minutes were minutely examined Judge Harris was not one of the justices accused of "ticket-fixing." In March he posed a serious threat to the leadership of R. Ford Hughes as County Republican Committee chairman when he won the backing of Islip committeemen in a contest for the Second Assembly District. Mr. Hughes' choice was Smithtown Judge Prescott B. Huntington. Judge Harris, who won the nomination after a bitter contest, later withdrew his name from the primaries at the request of the Islip committee. One of the factors influencing the decision was that the probable election of Islip Supervisor John P. Cohalan, Jr., to county office, the Islip Town Board would be left without an experienced member.

Born Thomas DeRivas Harris in New York City on January fourth, 1913, he was the don of the late Mrs. Mae A. Brady, who died in February, 1955, and of the late Joel Harris, who died in 1916. His faher was a partner in the firm of DeRivas and Harris, piano manufacturers in New York. Upon his death Judge Harris' mother assumed the presidency of the firm, operating the factory and retail outlets throughout New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. He spent his early years at Lake Ronkonkoma and then moved to Sayville about 30 years ago where he attended Sayville High School. He completed his education at Allentown Prep in Allentown, Pa. a lieutenant in the second World War he went overseas with the 84th Diivision in August, 1944. He was wounded in action on November 18th, 1944 in Germany where he was serving with the 334th Infantry. While hospitalized in Belgium, his hospital was struck by a robot bomb. His injuries left him deafened. He has awarded the Combat Infantryman's Badge, a Presidential Citation, Belgian Forragere, a Unit Citation, the Victory Medal, American Defense Ribbon, and the Purple Heart Cluster, the Silver Star Medal with a citation that read: "When a portion of his Platoon was cut off by the enemy fire, Lt. Harris, completely disregarding his own safety, made his way through an intense enemy artillery and mortar barrage to effect the rescue of his men. The devotion to duty, courage and aggressive leadership displayed by this officer reflect high credit upon himself and the armed forces of the United States." He was placed on the retired list at Borden General Hospital in Chickasha, Okla. While recuperating at the hospital he met Miss Juliane Peterson, of Menasha, Wis., an acoustic technician, who taught him lip reading. They were married in Sayville in October, 1945, and have two children, Juliane, nine, and Patrick, five. In 1946 Judge Harris joined the staff of The Suffolk County News as advertising solicitor and circulation manager, a position which he held until January, 1954, when he left to devote full time to public office.

Judge Harris was given the last rites by the Rev. Bernard McGrath, of St. Lawrence's R.. C. Church. Besides his wife and children, he leaves a brother, Joel S. Harris IV, of Falls Church, Va. Judge Harris was a member of the Sayville Rotary Club; the Smith-Wever Post, American Legion; the "Forty and Eight"; the Suffolk County Republican Club and the Sayville Republican Club. A requiem mass will be conducted at St. Lawrence's R. C. Church tomorrow (Saturday) at 10 a..m. and interment will follow in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery, New Rochelle. The body is reposing at the Raynor Memorial Chapel and friends may call there today from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Yesterday Islip Supervisor John P. Calahan, Jr., announced that out of respect to the memory of Judge Harris the Islip Town Board has decreed a period of two weeks of official mourning.

Editorials

The Town of Islip and especially we in the immediate vicinity have suffered a severe loss. It is not often that a public official gains, not only the respect but the deep affection that was accorded Tom Harris. Even those who were most surprised and bitter at not being able to "fix" their traffic tickets after he became justice of the peace, were forced, reluctantly, to admire the way he stuck to his guns. He loved his job for, more than anything in the world, he liked being in a position to help other people. With his keen mind and withal, warm heart, he spent hours of his time every week finding work for this man, looking after forlorn children, or trying to resolve family difficulties before they could reach the court. Few people who knew him only casually had any idea that this happy, apparently care-free ma had lived ever since World War II with the spectre of sudden death always before him. His severe injuries included a badly damaged heart and several attacks emphasized the fact that he would not live to be an old man. Even those who had worked closely with him for years, while we were aware of his condition, were not often reminded of it. If he were ever depressed, he kept it well hidden. He was never grouchy nor morose. Whoever follows Tom Harris as justice of the peace will have his work cut out for hm. He must be wise, kind-hearted and just without being "soft", stern, when the occasion demands it, but not harsh, and above all, he must be prepared to give hours of his time, early and late, to helping others.

Juliane C. Wilbur

of Sayville, New York
March 9, 1921 - January 5, 2013

Juliane Wilbur, a long-time Sayville resident, died peacefully in her home early Saturday morning, January 5th.  She was 91 years old. Mrs. Wilbur was a well-known, active member of the community, having served for many years as a trustee of the United Methodist Church in Sayville, a volunteer for the American Red Cross, past president of the Sayville Garden Club, a supporter of the Sayville Cabinet for the Sick and other organizations. For nearly 20 years, she taught 4th grade at the Greene Avenue Elementary School in Sayville, retiring only when the school was closed. Mrs. Wilbur was born in Wisconsin and moved to Sayville at the end of World War II. She met her first husband, the former Justice of the Peace Thomas D. Harris, while serving as a speech therapist for wounded soldiers at Borden General Hospital, Chickashaw, Oklahoma, in 1945, where he was a patient. Judge Harris ultimately succumbed to his war injuries in the early 1950s, and she remarried Grant Wilbur, a local banker, some ten years later. Mr. Wilbur died in January 1985. Mrs. Wilbur was well liked by a great many residents in the area. It always pleased her greatly when former 4th grade students of hers would stop her as she shopped in town, asking if she remembered them, saying how they enjoyed her as a teacher. She was rarely at a loss for recalling the first and last name of her former charges from 40 or more years ago. She remained relatively active through the fall, notably traveling to visit her brother in Wisconsin, and to attend her sister’s 90th birthday party in Plymouth, Mass last August – both visits contrary to doctor’s cautions. Her two children, Juliane Marie Harris, and Patrick Harris, were with her in her last weeks and at her bedside when she passed early Saturday morning, January 5. She was bed-ridden for her last three days, attended following a fall. Her faithful cat, Melissa, slept by her side non-stop for those last days.
