David William Morris

AGE: 88 • Tinton Falls

David William Morris, 88, most recently of Tinton Falls, New Jersey, died peacefully in his sleep on Nov. 15, 2016. A native of Long Branch, Dave was the youngest of five children born to Sarah and Reuben Morris. A graduate of Long Branch High School and a member of the National Guard, Dave moved to Monmouth Beach in 1954. There he raised his family with his wife of 64 years, Claire Morris until they moved to Seabrook Village in Tinton Falls in 2003.

Having grown up only a couple of blocks from the ocean, he was a lifelong fisherman. Dave was a successful builder and carpenter, specializing in remodeling and building new homes. After retirement, he volunteered for Meals on Wheels, loved searching for hidden treasures at garage sales and became a master craftsman of stained glass.

A member of Asbury Methodist Church, Dave was preceded in death by his parents, all of his siblings and his beloved son, David Morris Jr. He is survived by his wife, his son, Robert Morris and his wife Ann of Arlington, Virginia, and his grandson Malcolm of Denver, Colorado.

A memorial service will be held in Dave's honor at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 22 in the Atrium at Seabrook Village.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Dave's name to the Seabrook Scholarship Fund, 3000 Essex Road, Tinton Falls, NJ 07753 or to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, www.cff.org
