WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - Former White Plains resident Charles A. Harris died Nov. 28, three days before his 93rd birthday, in Vero Beach, Fla.
Born in New York City on Dec. 1, 1918, he was the former Regional Vice President at Heublein Company for 25 years. Harris was Senior Past District Deputy Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of New York and Past Master of John Jay Lodge in White Plains.
