Shelby Harris dead at 111 years old! Oldest colored man alive in the USA!

ROCK ISLAND — Shelby Harris, one of the oldest men in the world at age 111, has died in Rock Island.

the Rock Island Nursing and Rehabilitation Center said on Sunday that Harris died there Wednesday.

Dr. L. Stephen Coles, of the Gerontology Research Group and Supercentenarian Research Foundation in Los Angeles, told the Quad City Times that Harris was the third-oldest man in the world and the oldest man in the U.S. when he died.

Dawn May, an administrator at the nursing home, told the newspaper that Harris died “comfortably in his sleep of natural causes.” May said Harris’ health had been declining recently. He had lived at the nursing home since he was 105, she said, and before that lived on his own with some help.

In April, he threw out the first pitch at a Quad-Cities River Bandits baseball game.

“He also got to have his favorite meal for his birthday: fried catfish, okra and sweet potato pie,” May said. “We made that for everybody.”

Harris was a deacon at Second Baptist Church in Rock Island until he was 102.

“A lot of people knew him here and in the community,” May said. “He was a very nice man, he really was. He had a lot of good stories.”

Good for you Shelby. Most of us will probably never see beyond 70 or 80 years of age. I bet he had some great stories to tell. RIP, Sir.

OMG, why don't you go suck that old nigger's dead dick! "Sir"???? That leach has cost us millions! Maybe you don't mind "it" made it to 111 yrs old but I prefer when they are gunned down in their youth so the welfare stops.

Damn, sure hope he got his Mule and 40 Acres or is he still due reparations?

"fried catfish, okra and sweet potato pie" isn't that slave food?

Harris was a deacon at Second Baptist Church in Rock Island until he was 102 and we all know what deacons in the black MB churches do right...... they take up the slack from the preacher as he services the widows and old single women of the congregation.

Well no doubt some one quickly took his place as he moved on.

What did God say when he made the first Nigger?

Oops! Burnt another one!

I wonder how much welfare money this guy received in his lifetime. You just know he wasn't a hard-working productive member of society.

This guy endured REAL racism. Not the imagined, phony bullshit the coddled shines of today play out.

Speaking of "dimwits" it should read "entitlements are" not "is". You stupid shit. Get off your fat ass, stop stealing my tax dollars and get a job from one of those "evil" businesses. What have you ever created in life? Nothing.
