He was preceded in death by his first wife, Barbara, and his second wife, Lynn; his son, Dennis Brian Morris; and his brothers, Richard and James (Mary).

Friends may meet with the family from 10 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 6, at Gorden Funeral Residence, Hopkins Chapel, where the funeral will begin at 11 a.m. Interment at Maplewood Cemetery, Hopkins Township.
