He did drive Colonel Patton a couple of times. He said Patton was a lot smarter than most and was always watching what was happening around him.

After the war, Morris trained and worked as a machinist for Texas Instruments and Braniff Airways until he retired in 1985.

He did not talk much about his service until late in his life. He had a lot of tales to tell.

He won a bronze star for heroism.

He was a good kind hearted person that is sorely missed by his children.
