Ron was born January, 19, 1948 in Independence, Missouri to Charles ‘Dude’ and Ethel Naomi (Oldham) Morris.

He was an athlete in high school and spent many years coaching his son’s baseball teams, attending his daughter’s volleyball games then later attending his grandsons’ games and granddaughter’s dance recitals. Grandpa Morris rarely missed sending birthday cards and yearly sent his daughter and son-in-law an anniversary card. Ron will be best remembered for his goofy nature (of his younger years… And his incredible memory of things from the past (good ‘ol days).”

He was preceded in death by his parents, and a younger brother Phillip Morris.

Ron is survived by his daughter, Sheila (Josh) Salmond and son, Kevin Morris, grandchildren; Mason, Lily and Adalyn Salmond and Sam Morris, a sister, Andrea Stephens and a brother, Charles Morris

    Sheila and Family – Praying for all of you as you grieve the loss of your father. It’s uncanny how much you and Mason look like him. What a handsome man with beautiful children and grandchildren!!! Your father is a part of all of you, and I’m sure he’s finally at peace and looking down on you from heaven.

    Sheila, Kevin and family, I want to express my and Jim’s sympathy on the loss of your father. We hadn’t seen him in a long time, but it sounds like he shared some very special times with you and your families. Remember those good times! We didn’t know your dad in his younger years, but I see so much of you both in his good looking face. Our prayers will be with all of you during this time of grief.
