Kevin Morris
1980 - 2021
Kevin Michael Morris

Kevin was born on March 5, 1980, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and passed away on April 11, 2021.

Kevin was preceded in death by his mother, Patricia "Patti" Ruth Morris-Moreno, his grandparents Morgan and

Katherine Morris, his uncles Morgan "Tommy" Morris and Michael "Mickey" Morris, his aunts Katherine "Kay" Curcio and Deborah "Debbie" Valencia.

Kevin is survived by his son Donovan Michael Morris, his daughter Aislynn Patricia Morris, his father Gilbert Moreno and wife Emily Moreno, his older brother Brian Morris and wife Sylvia Morris, his younger sister Meghan Martinez and husband Andrew Martinez, his aunt Muriel "Peggy" Morris-Gonzalez, his cousins AnnaMaria Curcio and Theresa Curcio, his nephew Brian Morris II, his nieces Reagan Morris, Farrah Martinez, Carmen-Lucía Martinez, Moira Martinez and Paloma Martinez.

Kevin grew up in both the South Valley of Albuquerque and Carson Park of Los Lunas, NM. Kevin loved being outdoors and had a passion for animals from an early age; he would spend hours walking the riverbanks and fields looking for lizards, snakes, spiders, and toads. Kevin attended St. Mary's Catholic school and went on to attend Los Lunas High School. He was an altar server for Our Lady of Fatima and St.Therese Parishes.

In 2005, Kevin became the proud and protective father of Donovan Michael Morris. Kevin and Donovan shared their love of animals and were known for their collection of reptiles, spiders, dogs, and cats. It is fitting that Donovan is the spitting image of his father and that they were best friends.

In 2013, Kevin would become the father of Aislynn Patricia Morris. Kevin's precious butterfly, a daughter that he adored with all his heart. Aislynn is the spitting image of her grandmother Patti and has her personality, too, which filled Kevin with so much pride.

Kevin worked at the Walmart Distribution Center in Los Lunas, NM as a logistics manager. His staff loved Kevin because of his work ethic, enormous heart, and dedication to his team.

After leaving Walmart, Kevin found a job that combined his passion for the outdoors and love of animals at the Albuquerque BioPark. During his five years there, Kevin built great relationships with his co-workers and gained the trust of some of the most untamable of animals.

Kevin was an exceptional cook; he could create feasts out of the most humble ingredients, never used a recipe, and the spicier, the better; Kevin never came across chile too hot! Kevin had a dry, quick-witted sense of humor and could tell a story like no other.

Kevin's children were his life and his most significant accomplishments; he was a wonderful father, son, brother, nephew, cousin and friend to so many. Kevin gave the best hugs, and we will forever miss his strong, loving embrace. You will live on through your children and our warm memories of you; rest in peace, Kevin. We love you.
