Dr. Morris Prigoff passed away on March 4, 2021, after a serious six year illness. He was lovingly cared for at home by his devoted wife Michela, whom he referred to as “my wife for life’”. They were blessed with 19 beautiful years of marriage.

Dr. Prigoff grew up in Syracuse, New York, and was a graduate of the University of Syracuse and the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine. He was a proud member of the Texas Podiatric Medical Association and a sponsor of the March of Dimes and American Heart Association. A podiatrist of 45 years in Oak Cliff and North Dallas, Dr. Prigoff was loved by his patients for his wonderful care and generous, fun-loving spirit.

At 6 feet, 2 inches tall, Morris had a bigger-than-life personality and a gentle, generous nature. Also known as “Moe”, he gained fame on the show Storage Wars Texas. He loved travelling, teaching, swimming and basketball, gardening, collecting art and his wife’s excellent cooking. He was the owner of River Regency, a mid-century modern furniture and antique store. He had a knack for buying and recreating special pieces and a great love of art and collectibles.

Morris will also be lovingly remembered by his daughter Gina Leonard, son-in-law Paul, grandsons Gavin and Zachary, sisters Rosella Heumann and Suzanne Achleitner, step-son Chase, and many loving nieces and nephews. He will be remembered as well by fans all over the country, and by his many devoted patients.

Funeral arrangements will be completed by Sparkman/Hillcrest in North Dallas. A Memorial Service will be held Thursday, March 18, 2021, at 10:00 at Sparkman/Hillcrest Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, contributions in his memory may be made to Congregation Beth Shalom in Arlington Texas.

My condolences to the family & friends. Moe was my favorite of all the folks in Storage Wars. He had an excellent eye for antiques... especially anything made of wood. Loved his fancy footwear. He was smart, funny, humble, kind and a wise man. May he rest in peace.
