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.
