Morris, Kenneth Houston

Kenneth Houston Morris was born April 11, 1937 in Stigler, Oklahoma to Houston and Elsie Morris. He passed away on August 24, 2018 at the age 81 in The Colony, Texas. He was preceded in death by his daughter, Kathy Morris; and sister, Ferldeen Nowlin. Kenny is survived by his wife, Connie Morris; son, Jack Morris; and daughter, Monica Morris.  He has three granddaughters: Jasmine, Natalie and Emily; two great-granddaughters, Gracie and Julie Anne, and one great-grandson on the way; along with numerous nieces, nephews and friends.

Kenny was a dedicated and loving husband to his wife, Connie, of 61 years.  He was a great father and provider, supporting his wife and children always. He served our nation in both the Airforce as a young man and the Coast Guard Auxiliary later in life. He held many elected positions, ultimately serving as Division Commander. He loved every minute he spent educating people on boater safety and the hundreds of hours he spent patrolling Lake Lewisville helping bring others safely home.

When I fell in love with jasmine we went to visit her family in Texas in early 2011. From the very beginning GPK (Grandpa Kenny,) as I would grow to affectionately call him, was very welcoming and sweet. He was always genuine, giving, and generous. I know Jasmine loved him very much and I grew to really love and respect him. I’m glad and honored that my two girls got to get to know him and visit with him several times. He sure loved my wife and my children. He loved his wife and children. I will miss sitting around Jack’s house snacking in the kitchen with GPK. He would always play hide and seek with my girls and say “are you grandpas girl?” As he would tickle them and make them laugh. That is how I will always remember him. I pray his soul be at peace with the Lord.

I loved my grandfather, my “Grandpa Kenny”, he was a wonderful man. We have so many memories together that I don’t know where to begin to share them. He always called me “little”, he enjoyed taking me on boat rides, and he loved his great grandaughters very much. I wish he would have lived long enough to meet his first great grandson who is on he way. He is dearly missed by us all.

John and I are the next door neighbors of Kenny & Connie . We are sadden to hear of his passing. My fondest memory of Kenny was of him sitting in his lawn yard under the shade of the tree watering his lawn. As we walked by , Kenny always acknowledge our sweet Maxwell (our minture schnauzer) and asked if he was enjoying his walk. Maxwell would talk back to Kenny with a Suttle bark and Kenny found it humorous of Maxwell's reply. It meant alot to us that Kenny enjoyed Maxwell's visit in the neighbor.He even asked Maxwell if he could spray him with the water hose, we laughed at the response. As I walk to my mail box I will glance at the tree hoping to catch a glimpse of Kenny still sitting there watering his lawn and greeting anyone that strolls past his house. Kenny loved his neighbors and his neighbhood. Kenny diffently had the good neighbor policy. A kind and sweet man , heaven is blessed to have him as we were blessed to have him as our neighbor & friend. I'll be looking for Kenny sitting under his tree watering, as he watches over our neighborhood. Love you Kenny .

Being friends with Jack for 33 years you soon realized his Mom & Dad are also your friends. We soon became neighbors then our daughters were friends. We are better people to have known you and your family. God bless you for serving your country, and believing you treat people the way you would want to be treated. You have been a great role model of how an honorable man should live his life and you will be missed.

My husband John and myself were next door neighbors to Kenny&Connie. We are both so deeply sad to hear of Kenny's passing. I will remember Kenny always sitting in his lawn chair under the tree watering his grass. He always had a hardy hello as we walked our sweet maxwell (beloved pet) by Kenny as he was watering. My fondest memory of Kenny was of him making conversation with Maxwell and always asked us about him. That meant alot to us that he acknowledge us and Maxwell. As I go to my mail box daily , I will look at that same tree hoping to catch a glimpse of Kenny in his spiritual life , still sitting there over seeing and greeting everyone that passes by his front yard just as he always has. Thank you Kenny for your neighborhood love, your sweet and kind spirit. Heaven is truly blessed to have you join them as we were blessed to have you as our friend and neighbor. We love you.

Kenny Morris was to me a friend and an example of what I hope to be. He was nearly always smiling and he always had an ear to listen. He spoke very highly of his wife Connie and son, Jack, and daughter, Monica.
Kenny talked with me about boats and kids, and politics and work, and life and of Oklahoma and his father in law and the old days and how it was back then.
I learned a lot from my buddy Kenny, but mostly I learned by example, how to be a friend.
I will miss him as I would miss my own father and I will always remember the good times and the funny stories and the sincere friendship that was offered by Kenny Morris.
Godspeed my friend, fare thee well.
Oh, and see ya later, Okie.

Kenny was a very special friend to me. He was always warm & friendly. I looked forward to talking with him at Larry's. He cared about me, and was always asking how I was doing, and calling me if others hadn't heard from me in several days. Kenny was a very special man, a man that you would be proud to be friends with. We will all miss him. Mine and Brenda's condolences go out to Mrs Morris, Jack and the rest of your family.

I am a lifelong friend of Jack’s. When Jack would do work at my house, Ken would often accompany him. He was always great company. When I would meet Jack for breakfast at the diner, Ken would be there with his breakfast buddies. He was a good guys and will be missed.
My thpights and prayers go out to Connie and to Jack, who has always been like a brother to me.
