Morris was born in Ituna, Saskatchewan on March 16, 1951 and grew up on the family farm.
Morris obtained employment with INCO August 13,1971, retiring after 35 years with the company. Most of his years were spent in open pit mining operating heavy equipment which he enjoyed very much. He was a hard worker who took pride in a job well done.
Morris loved the outdoors. In his younger years he enjoyed his motorcycle. He loved snowmobiling and ice fishing in the winter; fishing, gardening, berry picking and doing yard work in the summer.
Morris was a loving husband and proud father. He was a kind and generous gentle man who always put his family first. He unfortunately did not get to know his grandchildren because of his early dementia diagnosis. They would have loved his playful and ‘teddy-bear like’ nature. He will be remembered as a strong man with a tender heart. His soft smile will be lovingly remembered.
