Morris loved his children. He often told everyone how proud he was of them. He was excited to be called Pop when he met his grandchildren. He loved spending time with his girlfriend Jana, and he was glad that she enjoyed the outdoors as much as him. He was a mama’s boy. He said that his mama was “the coolest lady on the planet.” He never missed an opportunity to tell her how much he loved her. He also leaves behind many beloved relatives and friends.
Morris died on the morning of Thursday, January 13, 2022. He will enter eternal life with his father Steve Wilson Hunter and his sister June Hunter Mansel waiting for him. He loved both his sister and father and longed for the day he would get to see them again. Morris grew strong in his faith during his last years. Morris wrote “for those that are hurting today, as my mother has taught me, surrender yourself to God. Get on your knees and hold on to the cross. When the storm comes, squeeze tighter, don’t let go, and life can still be good.”
