Stanley K. Morris passed away on August 18th, 2019. We’ll be celebrating his life on June 10th at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Big Timber, MT with a reception to follow at The Grand Hotel.

Stan was born in Scottsbluff, Nebraska, on March 24, 1930. He was the son of Keene Lon Morris and Alice Lillian Thompson Morris. Stan was a farmer at heart and worked from childhood with his father and grandfather on family farms in Nebraska and Wyoming before he started working for Atlantic Refining Company of Dallas Texas. He retired in 1986 from Amoco Production Company. Throughout his life Stan enjoyed hunting and fishing and spending time traveling. When Stan retired he moved to Big Timber and the mountains he loved so much. He spent many happy years helping ranchers with their sheep and cattle and cooking for elk hunting camp in those mountains. There were many great stories and memories he enjoyed reliving when he could no longer go to the High Country. Throughout his life Stan was a horseman and his horses and mule were numbered among his best friends.

Stan was a member of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Big Timber. He served as Master of Masonic Lodge in Riverton, Wyoming, and in Big Timber, and was a member of the Kalif Shrine Temple.

Morris, Elizabeth Morris Mitchell and Ian Cyr. Stan has five great grandchildren Sydney and Keenan Morris and Elizabeth, Charley and Maclan Mitchell. He leaves behind three sisters: Jeannine, Jerilyn and Joyce. Stan’s family would like to thank all the staff of St. John’s United who took such wonderful care of him during his last few years. They became his extended family.
