Robert Eben Morris Obituary
Robert Eben Morris, 74, died on October 16, 2013, after a long, courageous battle with prostate cancer. A Santa Fe resident since 2011, Bob was born in Cleveland, Ohio.

Growing up musical, he studied timpani with Cloy Duff, the longtime principal timpanist of the Cleveland Orchestra. Bob earned his bachelor's degree in Art History from Ohio University (Athens) and did graduate work, specializing in Northern Renaissance, at the University of Iowa (Iowa City). In the late 1960s, he moved to Colorado Springs, where he taught art history at Colorado College. He also did curatorial work at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center. Later, Bob joined the editorial staff of Shepard's Citations (LexisNexis), from which he retired at the end of 2005. He and his wife Jane lived from 2006 through 2010 in the home they built in Arroyo Seco, outside of Taos.

Bob is survived by Jane Waddell Morris, his wife of 25 years; his two daughters, Victoria [Orlando] Nuñez and Alexandra [Zachary] McGrath, of Tampa FL; five grandchildren; and his brother, John Andrew [Patsy] Morris, of Perry Park CO.

In accordance with Bob's wishes, no services will be held.

The family asks that memorial contributions be made to the Santa Fe Opera or the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market.
