David "Dave" John Morris

David “Dave” Morris passed away peacefully with his family by his side Friday, February 9, 2024.

A celebration of life will be held at Wilkerson Funeral Home Saturday, February 17, 2024, at 1:00 PM.

Dave was born January 4, 1943, in Warwick Rhode Island to the late Abraham and Ruth Martin Morris. Although Dave was born in Warwick, Reidsville was his home and where he was happiest. It was where he met the love of his life Gretchen Holt Watlington with whom he was married nearly 40 years.

Dave was what you would call a hobbyist, having numerous hobbies throughout his life, from fishing to competitive roller dancing, to photography, to astronomy, literally building an observatory in his back yard, to his beloved model trains. Those trains were a sight to behold! He never missed an opportunity to tell people about his hobbies, at the ready with plenty of pictures to show you. He enjoyed life and truly lived it to the fullest.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Gretchen, of the home; son, Todd Morris (Kory) of Nebraska and daughter, Tracy Morris Shaw (Gary) of Asheboro; as well as one sister, Vickie Morrison (Al) of Tennessee.

The family would like to thank, Mark and Sue Phillips, Mary Holt Adams, Trina Marson, Anna Smith and Lisa Ramsey for their love and support.

In lieu of flowers, please make a memorial contribution to the charitable organization of your choice.
