Morris, 69, was a caring and thoughtful son, brother, uncle and friend. He was born in Hanford, CA on August 31, 1951 to Billie and Carmen Silvas. He graduated from Lemoore High in 1969, where he excelled in football and track. He then attended Fresno City College to study engineering.
As a young man, Morris was a cowboy for local feed lots. He then went on to work for Huron Ginning Company for 23 years. He left the gin company to pursue his passion for welding when he started his own welding business. Due to his declining health, he had to retire.
Morris is survived by his sister Geri Albertson (Alford), his nieces Renee Davis (Albert), Lori Areias (Frank), and great niece Taylor Areias and great nephew Dalton Areias, all of Lemoore.
