Morris was raised in the Aurora and Mt. Vernon areas. After graduation from high school, he served his country proudly in the United States Army during World War II. After being honorably discharged from the Army, he began a career with General Motors in Kansas City. He retired to the Lake of the Ozarks in 1973.
Morris made a profession of faith and was a member of Ira Baptist Church.
He was a committed husband and always enjoyed doing things that his wife liked to do. He enjoyed conversation and always had a story to tell. He also loved to write poems, whistle and sing old time songs. Most of all, spending time with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren was most important to him.
He was a loving father, grandfather, brother and uncle and a caring neighbor and friend. We celebrate his life and his accomplishments and will treasure the memories he created for his family and friends.
