Gary Houston Morris
November 19, 1943 – February 15, 2022
Gary H. Morris, age 78, passed away surrounded by family on February 15, 2022.
Gary grew up in St. Matthews, graduating from Waggener High School, class of 61 and the University of Louisville School of Business, class of 65. He was a proud Army veteran serving six years in the 220th CID.
Following his active duty, he went to work for WAVE television where he produced television commercials for the local sales department, eventually becoming a sales executive in local and national sales.
He later became a partner in Excelawn Corporation which became the fifth largest lawn company of its kind in the country. After a short retirement, Gary joined Commonwealth Commercial Real Estate group as an associate, for the purchase, development and management of industrial properties in the Louisville area. He was still actively involved up until his death.
Gary had a lifelong love for Harley-Davidson motorcycles and on most weekends you could find him on the open road, just him and his Harley. He also loved muscle cars, playing golf, and spending winters on the beach with family, friends, and his sweet fur baby Bailey.
He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and dear friend to so many. He lived selflessly, lifting those up around him with a kind word, compliment or even just a humble ear. He was a man of integrity and in our eyes, he was immeasurable.
He is survived by his wife Karen L. Morris, whom he was married to for 28 years, his two daughters Tawnya Hysinger (Lyle) and Tara Pate (Scott), his grandchildren, Jordan (26), Zach (19), Will (16), Blake (16), and great granddaughter Jadeyn (3). He was preceded in death by his parents, Estle L. and Mildred L. Morris.
A memorial service was held on February 25, 2022 at Resthaven Funeral Homein Louisville Ky.
