James Allen Morris

James Allen Morris, 87, passed away on January 10, 2021, after a long battle with cancer. He was born in Pauls Valley, Oklahoma, to Roy A. and Hazel G. Morris and graduated from Pernell High School in 1951. It was at Pernell where he met his wife of 67 years, Patsy C. Lee. James attended college at East Central State University before he and Pat moved to Colorado. James then served proudly in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War, assigned to the USS Kearsarge. Upon returning from his military service, James went to work for Skelly Oil Company. He and Pat moved often with Skelly, and it was while they were living in Wilson, Oklahoma, that their only child, Carla was born. Several moves later took the family to Tulsa where James completed his college degree at T.U. and then eventually became the Manager of Administration for the Central E&P Division. He continued to work for the company after it merged with Getty Oil and then Texaco. James retired in 1992, and he and Pat began traveling all over the country in their motorhome with the Dean's RV Camping Club. James loved to play golf, tell stories, work in his woodshop, and was wicked at dominos. He was a truly great family man, and loved spending time with his grandson, Jay. James will be missed by all those who knew him, but he will never be forgotten. James is survived by wife, Patsy Morris; daughter, Carla and her husband, Bryant Coffman, and grandson, Jay Coffman, all of Tulsa; as well as a mile-long list of family members that were all very dear to his heart. The only service will be a private, graveside memorial for the family. Friends may leave condolences for the family by visiting www.moorefuneral.com. Moore's Southlawn 918-663-2233
