• Edward H. Morris, M.D., age 84, went to be with the Lord on October 4, 2017 after a lengthy illness.  He was born in Akron, Ohio on April 28, 1933.  He graduated from North High, Akron University and Western Reserve Medical School in Cleveland, Ohio.

    After his medical internship, he spent two years in the air force as a flight surgeon.  On leave from the base in San Antonio he was able to fish the waters of the Gulf of Mexico and decided then that Texas would be his home. His love and passion for fishing began at the age of 13 and lasted his entire life. He moved to Houston with his first wife and family and began his medical practice there primarily to be close to Galveston Bay and all the fishing that the area provided.  After the death of his first wife he met his current wife, Monica and they continued fishing throughout the United States, Canada and many countries in Central America.

    He was predeceased by his parents, Hoy and Flora Morris and by his first wife, Josephine Defiore Morris.  He is survived by his devoted wife Monica and his son Kevin and daughter-in-law Tina Morris of Houston, Texas.  He is also survived by his grandsons, Anthony (Isa) Morris , Bradley(Lindsey) Morris and granddaughter, Lauren Morris, and great-grandson Jack, all from Houston, Texas.  He is survived by his step-daughter, Alyssa (Steve ) Moss , step-grandchildren, Logan and Kiernan Moss of Mooresville, N.C.   

    He was a member of Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Rockport, Texas.    A celebration of Life will be held at 802 Wharf St. Rockport, Texas, the temporary church building of Holy Cross Lutheran Church on October 14, 2017 at 11:00 am.  In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Holy Cross Lutheran Church, CCA or the charity of your choice.

    Great friend, dedicated fisherman, and enjoyable musician. Very smart doctor who cared sincerely for his patients, but we think his career goal was to make enough money to go fishing! We'll miss you, Ed!Wayne and Carol McClelland

    Since Jesus surrounded himself with men like Luke, a doctor, and Peter and others, fishermen, I would say Edward (Doc) will havegreat stories to share in heaven. We always enjoyed Doc's, as we knew him, jokes and his appreciation of Willie Nelson's music. Most importantly, he was a great friend as a physician and helped Greg through some tough medical problems and his fee was usually a hug or kiss on the forehead. Monica will always be a lifelong friend of ours, so we can keep Edward's memories alive until we all see him in heaven.

    We are deeply saddened by the passing of our fun loving, kind hearted brother-in-law. Edward always brightened our family gatherings, too few due to geographic distance. We will always remember his stories and loving relationship with his wife Monica and fishing.

    i was a patient of Dr. Morris from the sixties to the time that he retired. I was just a young lad when he became my doctor. He was a great doctor. He was kind ,caring and knowledgeable. He gave me good advice about maintaining a healthy life, some that I never forgot. I missed you Doc when you retired but I knew that you were somewhere happily fishing. Thank you for being "My Doctor". Rest in peace!
