Bobby “Robert” Jean Morris, 89, of Kokomo passed away February 6, 2019. He was born June 22, 1929 in Tipton, Indiana to Orrien and DeLee (Freeland) Morris.

In 1949 Robert married Peggy (Aaron) Morris and they were together until her passing in 2004. Robert was an Army veteran and served in Korea. In 1959 he joined the Kokomo Fire Department, where he rose to the rank of Battalion Chief, retiring in late 1985. Robert was also a proud member of the Masons, Scottish Rite and Shriners. He enjoyed building things; he was the eternal “fixer-upper”, completely remodeling their home in Florida. Most of all, Robert enjoyed spending time with his family, cheering on his grandkids at their swim meets and other activities.

Robert is survived by his sisters, Peggy (Max) Heflin and Sue (Charles) Cardwell, daughter Bobbi (John) Hillis; grandchildren, Alison (Andrew) Jackson and John Robert Hillis; great grandchildren, Annie and Alivia Jackson; and many special nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents and wife, Robert was preceded in death by brothers, Orrien Jr., Raymond, Billy and Teddy Morris and sisters, Alice Vair, Edith Plake and his twin Betty Morris.

I’ve been friends with Bob here in Florida for the last several years. Our love of the fire service, bluegrass music and classic cars provided a special bond for us. We often met for supper before going to a music jam. During his last bout in rehab in Florida, we swapped many fire department stories and I was able to pray and share the love of Jesus with him. I will sure miss him. I am praying for the Holy Spirit to comfort the family during this loss but know Bob is celebrating I heaven.
