John Edsel Morris passed away peacefully on June 6, 2014 in San Andreas, CA. John was born in Dracut, Massachusetts on October 13, 1926 to Ernest Samuel Morris and Florence Belle Morris (Sanborn). He is survived by his devoted wife of 64 years, Pearl Morris (Grubic), loving daughter Carol Perich (Joel) of Jackson, CA, and brother Marshall Morris (Bernice) of Melbourne, FL. He is preceded in death by his sister Nancy Drake (David) and brothers Ernest Morris (Ellen) and Ira Morris (Pat). John proudly served his country in WWII as a gunner’s mate on the USS St. Louis, the “Lucky Lou”. He worked for the John Breuner Company in Sacramento, CA as warehouse foreman from 1948 until his retirement in 1988. John was a longstanding member of Teamsters Local 150 and the American Legion. After retiring John and Pearl traveled extensively throughout the United States, Canada, and Alaska. John enjoyed gardening, bowling, golf, reading, and a simple but well-made bourbon and soda. He was the salt-of-the-earth, adored by his wife and daughter, and will be missed by family, friends, nieces and nephews for his integrity, beaming smile, sincere good humor, and willingness to always lend a helping hand. Private cremation. In lieu of flowers please contribute to your preferred charity. Cards and condolences can be sent in Pearl’s name to the Mark Twain Convalescent Hospital, 900 Mountain Ranch Rd., San Andreas, CA 95249.
