Gary Morris was a generous, selfless man who always thought of others and would give you the shirt off his back. Although he could be stubborn, he had a big heart and had difficulty telling people no. He would show you how to get it done when he could not help.
He met Kitten when they were fourteen and sixteen years of age, and the couple were together ever since. They later married and had three children; Jason, Kevin, and Jenny, and had a lovely home on Morgan Parkway. Gary worked two jobs, one as an engineer and the second in HVAC, to provide for his family to allow Kitten to stay at home with the children. Often he would bring Jenny along to work with him to get her involved.
Gary and Kitten were later blessed with ten grandchildren; Lincoln, Rya, Mackenzie, Kaylee, Alexis, Elijah, Dakota, Triston, Lucas, and Kaleb. Gary and Kitten would look after Jenny's children while she was hard at work. Gary and Kitten loved all their grandchildren deeply, especially their granddaughter, Mackenzie.
Fishing was a favorite pastime for Gary when he wasn't working. He had his boat where he docked off Sunset Bay, and after getting rid of the dock, would later launch off Hamburg.
Gary and Kitten delighted in trips to Jamaica and Cruises with her sisters, Sharon and husband David, Jackie and husband Mike.
When not fishing or spending time with family, Gary loved collecting coins and had quite an extensive collection. He also enjoyed family nights of playing poker and taking Kitten to the casino.
Gary will be greatly missed by everyone he touched.
