1978 ~ 2013
A beloved father, Mick Richard Morris, passed away peacefully in his sleep on June 03, 2013, in his home in Salt Lake City, at the young age of 35.
Mick was born on March 09, 1978, to Susan Patricia Morris and Richard Morris. He grew up in Salt Lake City spending much of his time with family and friends learning a deep respect and appreciation for music. By age 12 with help from his father Mick began to play the guitar. To continue with his love of music at age 17 Mick got his first job at the Heavy Metal Shop in Salt Lake. In 1997 Mick got his first break after auditioning and being accepted into the band Clear whom he toured with until 2000. It was then that Mick became the bass player for Eighteen Visions, with 18V he was able to tour the world and record five albums.
Following 18V Mick never was far from music, filling in with bands, touring as a tech, and working for multiple music labels. In March 2011, Mick got what he considered his greatest gift of all, his son Jude Ashton Morris. Mick spent his final years in Salt Lake City surrounded by family and friends.
He is survived by girlfriend Ashley Thewlis; son Jude Ashton Morris; father Richard Morris; two sisters Angela Hopkins, and Amanda Tuten; one brother Alex Morris; Niece and nephew Chelsea and Rulon Hopkins; many other aunts, uncles and cousins.
