Terry P. Morris Sr.
Terry P. Morris Sr., 66, of Lynchburg, went to be with his Lord on Thursday, January 21, 2021.
Terry was born August 18, 1954, in Lynchburg, Virginia, the son of the late Ralph Lee Morris and Geraldine Bayes Morris of Lynchburg. In addition to his mother, he is survived by his three sons, Terry P. Morris Jr. of Durham, N.C., Kelvin L. Morris Esquire of Pittsburgh, Pa., and Jermaine Morris of Lynchburg, Va.; ex-wife and mother of his children, Sheryl H. Morris; six brothers, Amos Morris Sr. (Shirley), Ronnie Morris Sr. (Eva), Blake Morris Sr. (Peggy), Harold Morris, Steve Morris, and Damon Morris; two sisters, Pamela Brown (Arthur Brown Sr.) and Lilly Morris; three grandchildren, LeBron Ramsey, Mackenzie Morris, and Jasmine Morris, and their mother V'nail Woodruff. Terry also had dozens of nieces and nephews that affectionately called him "Uncle Terry".
In addition to his father, he was preceded in death by one sister, Deborah Morris; and two brothers, Donald and Dale Morris.
Terry was a dedicated father to his children, and father figure to many other children in the community. He spent time with them playing basketball, fishing, attending sporting events and going to amusement parks. More importantly, the time he devoted facilitated their growth and development as young adults. That devotion allowed his children to win the "parent lottery". For that, they will always be grateful and have him in their lives.
Terry was a proud alumnus of E.C. Glass High School and an avid Pittsburgh Steelers fan. He was a devoted member of Bountiful Blessings Church of God in Christ, where he served as Special Adjutant to the late Pastor I.L. Ward Sr. He was also a deacon and an usher.
A Celebration of Terry's Life will be held at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, January 27, 2021, at Tree of Life Ministries, located at 2812 Greenview Drive, Lynchburg, VA 24502 with Pastor Barbara Ward officiating. Interment will follow at Forest Hill Cemetery.
