Michael Baron Morris

Michael Baron Morris went home to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on Friday, October 22, 2021.

He was born in Murfreesboro, Tennessee on April 14, 1943 to the late James Baron Morris and Dorothy Aiken Morris.

Mike was employed by Liggett-Meyers Tobacco Company for 27 years in research. In addition, he was known for his amazing sales abilities and ran numerous side businesses to provide for his family.

Mike gave his family and those he knew many reasons to celebrate life, along with a wealth of stories to learn from and treasure. Mike was also a consummate joke-teller, humorous poem writer, and always made everyone he met laugh. His family and friends are blessed to have known him and continue to be inspired by the example he set in being an honorable husband, loving father, inspiring Poppy, and a kind soul. That legacy will honor his memory for generations to come.

Mike was filled with extraordinary kindness and compassion which compelled him to have a deep burden for others to know Christ. Mike, along with his wife, Jenene, are members of Pleasant Grove Baptist Church.
Visitation will be held Monday, October 25, 2021 from 5:00 – 7:00 PM at Eakes Funeral Home in Creedmoor.

Mike is survived by his spouse of 56 years, Jenene Pendry Morris; one daughter, Jennifer Morris Snead and son-in-law, Val Snead; one grandson, Dalton Snead; brother, Marvin Daniel Morris; cousin by blood and brother by heart, Nathan Lee Dobbins; and a special niece who provided her loving and compassionate care during the last few years of his life, Cheryl Dobbins Hege. He is preceded in death by a brother, James Elliot Morris.

Funeral services will be held Tuesday, October 26,2021 at 2:00 PM at Eakes Funeral Home in Creedmoor officiated by Reverend David Herman and Reverend Willis Herman. Burial will follow in Carolina Memorial Gardens.

Pallbearers for the service are Eddie Atkins (lifelong childhood best friend), Tommy Blackley, Gerald Copeland, Wayne Craun, Nathan Dobbins and Sidney Lane.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Amedisys Hospice, 3320 US-1 S. Suite B, Franklinton, NC 27525.

    Jenene and family, Sorry about Mike. I will miss him at church but I will always remember when we worked in the kitchen on Harvest Day . He worked hard and we all had fun that day putting food on the takeout plates. God bless.

    I am so sorry for your loss. It’s been a few years since I last saw Mike, but I know he was a loving father, grandfather, brother and husband. He and Neal loved talking music together. I’ll always remember him for his great sense of humor and quiet kindness. He was such a sweet man, and I know everyone who knew and loved him will miss him terribly.

    So sorry for your lost. Just found out of Mike’s passing. Went to school with Mike. Did your daughter’s wedding and was a neighbor when you lived on Olive Branch. Mike was one of the nicest guys I knew. Love and prayers to you all.
