Morris loved the Lord with all of his heart and he wanted his family to know and understand how much Jesus loves us. He talked to us about his faith, but more than that, he lived it.
He was born in Colorado City, TX. His mother raised him in her parent's home for the first three years of his life because his father was in India during WWII. Morris loved to tell stories about his Pappy playing the fiddle and having a great sense of humor.
Morris must've inherited that sense of humor from Pappy, because Morris was always quick with a joke or teasing and he loved to laugh.
We all laughed at the stories he told about growing up in Roscoe, TX with his sisters. He loved teasing the girls, but most of all he loved them. His childhood and teen years were filled with stories of love, laughter, and family.
He worked for the state of Texas for many years. He started at the Texas Department of Agriculture and retired from TXDOT. He was proud of his years with the state and made some dear friends along the way.
Morris was always quick with a smile or a kind word, and he showed us selfless love when his first wife, Margie, became ill. He spent endless days taking care of her and always did it with gentleness and love. He never complained. He loved her unconditionally, just as he's loved the rest of us.
We will miss him greatly, but have peace in knowing he went home to Jesus and heard, "Well done, my good and faithful servant."
There will be no public viewing and the services will be family only at graveside at Sunset Memorial.
