Fairfax Harrison was described as "physically imposing", and gray-haired in his middle age; and by an employee, Harry DeButts, "a little cold when you first met him, but underneath he was a very warm, admirable, capable and wise man".
Hetty and Fairfax had four children: three daughters, Ursula, Constance, and Sally, and a son, Richard.
Fairfax Harrison died of heart disease and was buried in the Ivy Hill Cemetery, Alexandria, Virginia.
