Morris was the glue that held our family together. He was our cool and collected guy, that got along with everyone. He was a true Westsider at heart. Morris’s love of life was collecting classic cars. He had a love for making music and owned his own recording studio. He was a composer and mentor, he enjoyed composing/composed lyrics, beats and sounds. He went by the name of WestMo’s, his music can be heard at Reverbnation. Morris also enjoyed traveling, especially to Denver, Colorado to the Low Rider Car Shows and Pow Wows.
His favorite colors were red and black. He was very proud of his native heritage, he was half Winnebago from Nebraska and half Dakota from Prairie Island, Minnesota. Morris loved being a big brother, going to family outings, BBQ’s taco parties, birthday and graduation parties. You could always count on him for being there, visiting family and friends. Gone too soon!
