Dr. Doug Harris moved to Berryville, Arkansas, a town of about 3800 population, in 1974. It is located in the Northwest corner of the state just east of Eureka Springs and about an hour south of Branson, Missouri. U.S. Highway 62 and Highway 21 intersect on the East edge of town. His grandparents are life-long residents and Doug spent every summer with his grandparents so Berryville was like home to him. Doug's father, John, retired from the Navy in 1974 when he and his wife (Doug's mom :), Loretta, also chose this area to live and work. John worked in the teaching, administration, and technology fields in the K-12 schools until 1998 and Loretta owned and operated a beauty shop for many years; both are now retired in the Berryville area and very active in their church.
Debbie, Doug's wife, works in the Berryville Schools system as the High School secretary.

Doug and Debbie have four grandchildren: Aaron, Ashley, Kristen, and Jaelyn.
