A WW2 overseas military veteran Morris returned home from the war to work at Westinghouse in Hamilton Ontario as a machinist.

One could always count on Morris to tell funny stores of events thru out his life, be the life of the party and always offer kind words of advice on many of his favorite topics, photography, gardening and cooking would be at the top of the list.
