Clarence Morris Obituary

Clarence Champbell Morris, age 83, passed away peacefully at the Jim and Betsy Bryan Hospice House September 26, 2023.  He was born June 26, 1940, to the late Thomas J. Morris and Shirley Spence Morris in Brunswick County, Virginia.  He met his soon to be bride at age 17 while working in a Dime store.  Since there was a policy against them dating, he chose the girl over the job, and soon married her.  They were married for 67 years.  He worked several jobs throughout his life, which led him to become a skillful carpenter, cabinet maker, and farmer.  He built the house that he and his family lived in, as well as some of the furniture.  He enjoyed camping, bluegrass music, watching Gunsmoke, keeping up with the stock market, taking care of his cows and ducks, and feeding his pet deer Snowflake.  Clarence was a devoted and caring husband, father, son, brother, and grandpa.  He is predeceased by his wife Irene, his parents, two sisters Ann and Linda and brother Troy.

He is survived by his three children Ricky Morris (Lisa), Randy Morris (Debbie) and Ronda Lemons (Greg).  Grandchildren Derek Morris (Brandi), Savannah Blackmon (Hunter), Adam Morris (Wendy), Stephen Gerringer, Thomas Gerringer, Autumn Pyrtle (Matthew), Ashton Dispennette (Dillon), Amelia Lemons, and Tyler Lemons.  Great grandchildren Tatum Morris, Bryn Aydt, Brody Aydt, Lacee Morris, Beckett Pyrtle, Leighton Pyrtle, Collins Pyrtle, Athena Dispennette, Gage Dispennette, Coco Dispennette, and Silas Alvarez.  Three brothers, Norman Morris, Tommy Morris, Ben Morris and one sister Patsy Adams.

Visitation with the family will be from 6-8PM, Friday September 29, 2023, at Donaldson Funeral Home & Crematory.  Funeral services and burial will be at Chatham United Methodist Church Saturday, September 30th at 2:00 PM.
