Darwin Morris


Recommended Posts

My cousin, Jason Morris wrote this obituary for his Dad.

Darwin Morris, 65, of Arlington was known for displaying his wit, wisdom and storytelling--often beginning with "to make a short story a lot longer" before giving an engineer's detailed account of things. He also often displayed a cigarette. He smoked for more than 40 years and died of lung cancer Saturday, March 4, 2006.

Funeral: 12:30 p.m. Monday, Moore Funeral Home Chapel, 1219 N. Davis Dr. Burial: Moore Memorial Gardens. Visitation: 4 to 6 p.m. Sunday at the funeral home.

Memorials: In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Goodfellows of Fort Worth, 200 Carroll St., 112, Fort Worth 76107.

He was born the last of seven boys on June 15, 1940, to Lena and James in Kopperl. Mr. Morris graduated from Kopperl High School in 1958, attended Paris Junior College in northeast Texas and graduated with an electrical engineering degree from the University of Texas at Arlington in the 1970s.

Education helped Mr. Morris go from a Central Texas farm to jobs with Texas Power and Light, Bell Helicopter and Lockheed Martin. He was a Texas Democrat who revered the country's principles and was proud of his work to help the military. He retired in 2002.

He valued teaching his children and grandchildren how the world works and made sure his kids went to college. He also learned by living and traveling the U.S. and the world, including to London on business; to Holland to see the grave of his brother, Deris, a World War II soldier; and to Australia for a road trip with friends from Sydney to Darwin. He also took trips around his beloved Texas and the U.S. with his wife, Pat. Brother, Dwain and sister-in-law, JoAnn.
