Kenneth
May 28,1941 - October 2,2014

MESSAGE FROM THE FAMILY SERVICE INFO

Kenneth Augustus Morris was born in Harlem, New York on May 28th, 1941 to George Acourt Morris and Josephine Viola Morris.  Kenneth or Kenny as he was affectionately called by family and friends would later attend Rice High School and graduate with high honors from St. Aloysius High School.  During his high school years, Ken didn't let an opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities escape him.  He was an active member of the indoor, outdoor and cross-country track and field teams.  He was also an avid chess and monopoly player.  Most people do not know that Kenny was a classical pianist, sousaphone player and effectively mastered the trombone, as well as and acted as Glee Club accompanist & band member. 


After high school, Ken took his talents north to the great state of Massachusetts where he attended Boston College.  While there, Ken was a indoor/outdoor relay and cross-country track enthusiast and made a public debut in 1960 with the Boston College Band at the St. Patrick's Day Parade in New York City. Never one to be put in a box as simply an athlete or a musician, Kenny studied chemistry and in fact  practiced chemistry on a professional level. Another little known fact about Ken is that he was a member of MENSA – the high IQ society that provides a forum for intellectual exchange among its members.  In other words, you can't be just a cool guy to be a part of this crowd.  


Aside from his academic and athletic genius, from a very early age Ken’s love for music became evident to everyone he encountered. His name as a producer/song writer can be found on the credits of many disco, funk and R&B charted hits by great acts such as Clarence Burke of Invisible Man’s Band, the soulful Candi Staton, Musique, Herbie Mann and the late, great, Rick James.  


Kenny's thirst to do it all cultivated the ability to make evident what was invisible to others through his ability to captivate beauty with his photography. All of the accolades and accomplishments would be enough for most men to walk around with their chests poked out.  However, for Ken his greatest pride, joy, strength and satisfaction came from his daughter, Stacey Lynne Morris and son, Wesley Whitney Morris.  His love for his children ran deep.  If you encountered him at the grocery store or during any of his daily errands, he'd be sure to give you an update on his celebrity barber daughter, Stacey or his newly married son, Wesley.  He became their voice of reason and a wise and fascinating soul to run to when faced with obstacles, challenges or dilemma.  He never judged the people in his life.  He only loved them and thanked them in his own tactful, discrete way for being there for him.  


Kenneth Augustus Morris- the charming, wordsmith and counselor was a unique being that leaves to celebrate his memory:  his older brother, George Henry Richard Morris, his beloved daughter, Stacey Lynne Morris, proud son, Wesley Whitney Morris, daughter-in law, Jacqui Verne Morris and nephew George Henry Richard Morris Jr., the mothers of his children Ms. Gina Harris-Rey and Ms. Judith Whitney-Morris. Left to celebrate and carry on the Morris name are Kenneth’s three grandchildren, Safaiya Kryslyn Comer-Morris, Saiyuri Elan Morris and Saxyn Siyel Morris. There are many other family, friends, professional peers and associates who will miss Kenneth Augustus Morris's penetrating brilliance who's life was an inspiring catalyst for creativity and passion.
