Thomas Howard Morris Sr., went home to be with Jesus on Sunday, July 10, 2022. Tom was a proud graduate of Mater Dei high school and was a retired Millwright. Tom was known for his strong will and his hard work ethic. In his downtime, he had plenty of hobbies that he enjoyed doing, such as reading, birdwatching and going on drives to the stripper pits to take pictures. He was a huge sports fanatic! He was especially proud of his hole in one at Hamilton Golf Course. He loved watching IU basketball and Notre Dame football. He was his son Tom’s soccer coach for multiple years and loved to watch his granddaughters play the game as well. Tom was a very generous man and would go out of his way to help others if he thought he could. Tom loved his children and his grandchildren. He also loved to banter back and forth with his daughter-in-law Joy, memories that she will never forget.
