He was born April 3, 1953, in Trelawny, Jamaica, the son of the late Eldalgo Harris and Lesama Sterling Harris.

Linbert was a Banquet Supervisor at The Omni Homestead Hotel. He was a hard worker, resilient, always taught us to stand tall, be proud and supported us all through the many accomplishments and difficulties of our life’s. Being humble was a special gift upon which Linbert was bestowed; those around him were drawn to his infectious and ebullient personality. Linbert Harris was a wonderful, selfless, and generous person. He touched the lives of so many people in such a short amount of time. He had an unassuming and disarming smile that could put anyone at ease and always found the silver lining to keep pushing forward in any situation. Linbert was so special. He represented the good that we all need every day in our lives. We are proud to have been able to call LINBERT HARRIS OUR FATHER, HUSBAND AND FRIEND.
