MO was a good man, honest, always supportive. MO lived by example, a man with high standards and scruples.
I had the pleasure of serving with CPO Morris at NCU London back in the early 80's.
Those were the days of work, work, work and fun, fun, fun, and more work and more fun.
May the Lord bless MO's loved ones and friends, may they think upon him with fond memories.

So sorry to hear of Mo’s passing. I had the honor of serving with him in London. He loved his Navy and we loved him back. He was a terrific shipmate and friend. The last time I saw him was at my home in Maryland in 2004 when we had a London reunion. All of us enjoyed a great afternoon reminiscing and we played darts on the porch — like we were back in England. He will be sorely missed but forever in our hearts.
