Dennis (Denny) Morris

Dennis (Denny) Morris, 65, passed away. Morris was born Aug. 7, 1953, in Ash Grove, to Robert and Phyllis Morris.
In 1974, Dennis married Sue Biglieni. He worked as an electrician for Frisco and Burl- ington Northern in the early part of his career. Morris eventually start-
ed his own successful embroidery business in 1985 that he owned and operated with his wife until they sold it in 2015 to retire and be- come full-time cattle farmers.
In his best moments, he always enjoyed joking with friends and family and giving them a hard time, and if you were on the receiving end of his razzing, then you knew that he liked you. He always had a pas- sion for the simplicity of living a rural life and took great pride in building up and developing his family’s farm through the years. He was an incredibly hard worker and rarely took time to rest, but if he did, you can almost bet it was because there was a Nascar race on TV, which was a passion of his. Similarly, he also loved restoring old cars. And though he was such a hard worker, over the last several years of his life, he slowly became more comfortable with slowing down and learning to appreciate the life that he had built. His biggest passion of all was taking care of his family and making sure that he had provided for them, which he successfully did.
He is survived by: wife, Sue; son, Dusty; son, Chad (Sarah); two granddaughters; one grandson. He is also survived by several cousins, nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents.
In lieu of flowers memorial donations can be made to First Christian Church, Ash Grove and may be left at the funeral home.
