Morris Eugene Hermansen Obituary
03/03/1944 ~ 09/11/2013
Ephraim, UT-Our loving husband, dad, grandpa and friend, Morris Hermansen, passed away unexpectedly at home on Wednesday, September 11, 2013. Morris was born on March 3, 1944 to Lee and Grace Hermansen. He married Colleen Barentsen on July 30, 1965 in the Manti LDS Temple. Morris was the owner of Hermansen's Hardware and Hermansen's Equipment in Ephraim. He was well-known throughout the state as an honest businessman who treated every customer with respect and fairness. He treated his employees like family. Morris leaves behind a legacy of honesty, hard work and quiet generosity. He was passionate about tractors and even learned how to search for them on the Internet at age 69. He loved sports, books, kid candy, history, coins, and ice cream and was always ready to go on a trip. We will miss his kind-hearted teasing, the silly nicknames he gave everyone and the way his face lit up when his grandchildren came to visit. Morris is survived by his loving wife, Colleen, and children Gina Pinckney (Mike), Carl (Jeanie), Erica Hill (Anthony), and Cameron (Rachel). He is also survived by 11 grandchildren: Jacob, Zachary, Kaytlynn, Carly, Mariah, Emily, Madelynn, Tyler, Sarah, Connor, and Baby Boy Hill, who adored him and were the light of his life. He leaves behind siblings Audrey Carter (Pete), Monte, and Don. Preceded in death by his parents and sister-in-law, Mary Lee Hermansen. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, September 14, 2013, at noon in the Ephraim LDS Stake Center located at 400 East Center Street. The family will greet friends Friday evening, September 13, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, September 14, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the church. In lieu of flowers, please share with someone in need.
