Thomas Joseph Morris, 67, passed away on June 23, 2019. He was a beloved father to two sons, Hon. Scott Thomas Morris and Grant Andrew Morris. He is further survived by daughter-in-law Amber D. Morris (nee Johnson and wife of Grant), granddaughter Emma, brothers Col. Wayne Morris (USMC-RET) and Timothy Morris, and was preceded in death by parents Frank Morris (nee DiMasi) and Beverly Morris (nee Greathouse).
Mr. Morris was a role model. He was my friend's father who not only chaperoned and carpooled, but also entertained, encouraged, and mentored us. I remember how he talked about his own childhood. I remember playing guitar with him. He made me feel part of the family. He was a great man and I will miss him.
Thank you for the wonderful childhood memories! From being my baseball coach all those years, to teaching me martial arts in the basement while adding a few stories along with the demonstrations (that may have been a bit exaggerated). I can still sometimes hear you playing the same cords over and over again on your electric guitar down in the basement, as I went to bed, it was like a sound machine for me at a young age.
I won’t forget all the wonderful family trips to the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Hawaii etc... along with the family road trips that never seemed to go according to the mapped plan!
Thanks for telling me and my friends once here in Florida to “push up our sleeves so you look like island guys”, and always walking into your favorite restaurants like you were The Godfather, and all should take notice.
You were an amazing father to me, and I know what you demonstrated over the years has helped me be the very best dad to Emma.
May you finally be at peace.
Love from all of us!
Grant, Amber and Emma💗
I am so sorry for your lost. Prayers
Dad, I will miss you more than words can explain. Thank you for being a wonderful father to your two sons, who loved you dearly and in whom you always expressed so much pride and joy. You are forever in my heart. Love always, Scott.
Our deepest condolences to the Morris family and friends our thoughts are with you all at this very difficult time from Kay Waites and staff at Sound Choice Cremation & Burials.
