Col. Morris was born on February 6, 1946 in St. Louis, Missouri. In 1964, he joined the U.S. Army. Subsequently, he attended flight school to earn his commission as a Warrant Officer. He served in the Vietnam War as part of the 1/10 Cavalry flying helicopters. Col. Morris earned many medals, including the Distinguished Flying Cross, Legion of Merit and Meritorious Service Medal.

His final duty station brought him to Bismarck, serving as the Senior Army Advisor to the North Dakota National Guard where he retired with 33 years of service to our country.

Col. Morris loved God and his country – a true patriot. He was a kind and loving husband, father and “Papa” to his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He loved the outdoors and enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping, woodworking and NASCAR. His sense of humor was unmatched and enjoyed board games with his family.

He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Renate; daughter and son-in-law, Cindy and Scott Crace; daughter and son-in-law, Carie and Terry Winings; five grandchildren, Chelsea, Faith, Zachary, Hope and Abigail; and three great-grandchildren.
