Robert W. Morse passed away Dec. 9, 2012, at his home with his wife by his side. Robert was born Aug. 26, 1947 to LB and Billie Morse. Robert was a man who could do anything he put his hands and mind to; and during his life he worked in farming and ranching, as well as driving long-haul transports in trucking. Of all the places he loved to drive, he especially enjoyed the deserts and the mountains where he could be reminded of the majestic beauty of nature. His experiences in ranching as he grew up earned him many close friends and memories of his talent with bareback riding and horses.
Robert never met a stranger — he was a wonderful listener and storyteller — he enjoyed tinkering and working in his garage, and anyone and everyone knew they were welcome to come and visit for as long as they wanted. His ability to fix anything with any tool was well known, along with his incredible generosity. He truly would help any person who had a need. Robert embodied the true cowboy in that he was always a perfect gentleman in every one of his dealings. He will be remembered for his love and devotion to his family and friends and dedication to always do the right thing at anytime for anyone. He will be greatly missed.
Robert was preceded in death by his father, LB Morse.
He leaves to cherish his memory his wife of 31 years, Karon Morse of Fate; children John Morse of San Diego, Calif., Lelton Morse and wife Phyllis of Kingsbury, Christie Morse-Cox and husband Kevin of Falcon, Colo., and Teresa Kruse and husband Dwight of Rockwall; his mother, Billie Morse; grandchildren Michael, Nathan, Brittany, Vintonique, and Wayne; three great-grandchildren; siblings JL Morse and Belinda Minahan; as well as several extended family members and friends.
His funeral service will be at 1 p.m., Dec. 14, at Anderson-Clayton Bros. Chapel with interment to follow at Campground Cemetery.
