The New York Times published the following on July 27:

Composer and musician Harris Wulfson died suddenly on July 23rd. He was deeply loved by friends and family, and his passing is an indescribable loss. Harris, a cum laude graduate of Amherst College, will forever be remembered as a gentle soul with tremendous humor, a keen and unconventional intellect and an incredible, gifted musician. He is survived by his parents Howard and Carol of Boca Raton, his sister and brother-in-law Michelle and William Jaeger, his grandmother Thelma Gordon and his music. 

Services were held at Riverside-Nassau North Chapels in Great Neck, NY, on July 27. Messages of sympathy can be sent to his parents, Howard and Carol Wulfson, at 4183 NW 60th Circle, Boca Raton, FL 33496.

Harris was a wonderful juggling partner in addition to musician.  I will cherish the memories I have with him and hope that his family and other friends find peace.
