Lawrence “Wayne” Morris, age 76 of Lewes Beach, DE, went home to be with His Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Thursday, September 3, 2020 at Delaware Hospice Center in Milford, DE. He was born on March 26, 1944, son of the late Lawrence C. “Dutch” and Elizabeth (Clark) Morris of Bowers Beach, DE. Wayne retired from Eastern Shore Natural Gas after 42 dedicated years as Transmission Project Coordinator. Upon retiring, he became a snowbird and enjoyed winters in Florida. He was a faithful member of Crossroad Community Church in Georgetown, DE, liked playing golf, watching NASCAR, and playing shuffleboard. He enjoyed spending time with his furever friend Moses, who passed away June 25, 2020. Moses was a great companion to Wayne and brought him much joy. Above all, he cherished time spent with those he held most dear. Wayne was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, and friend. He was loved by many and will be deeply missed by all who knew him. In addition to his parents, Wayne was preceded in death by his brothers: Coleman and William; and his sisters: Wanda and Jean. He is survived by his beloved wife, Jean (Rizzo) Morris of Lewes, DE; his children: Melanie Patrick of Austin, TX, Jason Morris of Dover, DE, and Tara Troise of Rehoboth Beach, DE; and his grandchildren: Bailey Morris, Vincent Troise, and Liam Troise.
