Michael David Morris, Sr. (AKA Big Mike), 58, passed away at a local hospital due to serious health conditions. Mike was born in Pekin, Illinois to Fred and Carol Morris. The family moved to Clifton, Texas in the late 1980’s then moved to Waco, Texas where he resided to this day. Mike went to several different schools in Waco, after graduating, he developed skills in construction, painting drywall, and some electrical work. Mike loved to spend time with his friends and family. He enjoyed going for rides at night. A constant jokester, he was always making us laugh and often wore a huge smile on his face. He took pleasure in helping people and going out of his way to do so. He liked playing slot machines on his phone and always seem to have lady luck on his side.
Mike was preceded in death by his father, Fred Morris; first wife, Melissa Northrup; sisters, Lisa Gross, and Laura Morris; brother Anthony Morris; brother-in-law, Keith Swindle; maternal and fraternal grandparents; aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Left behind to cherish his memory is his mother; Carol Lee of Waco; children, Michael Morris, Jr. of Eddy, Amber Fulton (Justin) of China Spring, Frederick Morris of Lacy-Lakeview; fiancé, Rhonda Allman of Bellmead; second wife, Leona Rogers of Lacy-Lakeview; grandchildren, Braxton Morris, Averee Bernard, Chloee Fulton, and Carter Fulton; sisters, Theresa Enhelder (Doug), Debra Swindle and, Jennifer Calderon (Eddie); brothers Jeffrey Morris, and Raymond Morris both of Waco. (The bond that he shared with his siblings was one of deep love and was very special); many nieces, nephews, and friends. He was loved very much and will be deeply missed by all.
Services are pending.

    You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I was unfortunate and just recently met Mike this past year. Although, I’m friends with his family and loved ones, we unfortunately didn’t have the opportunity to know each other that long, yet very quickly I came to realize how nice of a man, Mike was. Im grateful to say I know him and saddened for his passing. I’m deeply sorry for your loss, Carol, Rhonda, Jeff and Raymond. There are no words that I could possibly say to help you all right now so please just remember I love you guys and I’m here if you need anything!

  2. To one of the best friends I could’ve ask for; rest in peace bro, you will be greatly missed.

    You were one of the best friends I’ve ever had. I can’t count the times you gave me a ride or jumped my car off or made whatever mountain I was climbing seem like a molehill. You were a great man and most loyal friend. Rest In Peace my friend- You have surely earned it.

    You were a great friend Mike. Countless times you have helped me by jumping off my car or giving me a ride or just lending me an ear and letting me vent.
    You are a great man and a most loyal friend. Rest in peace you surely deserve it.

    Broken Heart
    Another crack in my already broken heart that holds all the memories of all of my siblings that have already departed. I don’t know why you were blessed to have an awesome sister like me who has a heart of gold, fun loving and who is just an awesome person all around. God knew you needed me as a sister LOL. JUST joking. See you’re not the only one that can be funny . But honestly, brother, it was the other way around. God knew I needed you in my life . You always had a strong and beautiful heart. You were always there for me from the start. As I sit here knowing my world will never be the same, all of your smiles, laughter, joking and craziness too and most of all your big hugs, and you telling me “I love you”. It’s all gone. As you were slipping away we held on tight, but the Lord still took you away! I wanted you to win this fight. It was one that just didn’t seem right. Man, how I wish and what I would give for this not to be true. But it is and I sit here with tears because we lost you. There was nothing I could do or say to keep you here with us for the rest of our days. So all I can do is hope and pray that the good Lord gives you your beautiful wings, so you can spread them far and wide, as u looking down from the sky. Oh, and your shining golden ring that will light the way! There is a part of this broken heart that knows we will see each other again one day. When we do, I hope we will know each other as you are my brother and I am your sister! Siblings forever, that will never end.
    So until then, remember this, I love you, Michael David Morris Sr., now and forever. That will never change. As you REST IN PEACE BROTHER our memories will stay forever in this broken heart that holds all of my memories of you. I love you so much and I really do mean it! Love Jen
