July 13, 2006

Sidney F. Harrison Jr., who ran a home improvement business and liked motorcycles, died in a motorcycle accident July 4 in Loudon County, Tenn. He was 38.

Mr. Harrison's residence was in White Marsh, but he had been living in Madisonville, Tenn., where he and his wife were building a house. He was born and raised in Baltimore and graduated in 1986 from Polytechnic Institute.

After graduation, he worked for several construction companies, then for FedEx for at least 10 years in Baltimore County before starting his business, which he ran out of his home in White Marsh.

He married Linda Ayers in 1995.

Mr. Harrison owned a 1999 Kawasaki 1500 series motorcycle, but family members said he referred to it as his Harley because he liked Harley-Davidsons.

Mr. Harrison was killed shortly after 8 p.m. July 4 when his motorcycle went off Interstate 75 and hit a guardrail, said Julie Oaks, a spokeswoman for the Tennessee Department of Safety.

In addition to his wife, survivors include his parents, Rebecca and Sidney Harrison of Brooklyn Park; and two sisters, Patricia Foor of Bel Air and Ann Gorecki of Baltimore.
