We are broken-hearted to announce the passing of Sidney Ralph Robert Morris also known to his friends and family as “Bud”, age 92, who passed away peacefully April 5th, 2021 surrounded by his beloved wife Albertha and only son Wayne and partner Karen at the Bay St. George Long Term Care in Stephenville Crossing, Newfoundland.
Sidney was born on Oct 24th, 1928 to parents Ralph and Ada (predeceased). Sidney is survived and leaves to mourn with many precious memories; his loving and devoted wife of 67 years Albertha, his beloved and devoted Son Wayne (Karen), grand-daughters Ophelia and Rebecca (Stefano), great grandsons Matthew, Christopher, Luca and Marco, sisters Maxine Meade and Joan Miller (Lowell) and brothers Joe (Sylvia) and Kevin (Janet). He is predeceased by sisters Phyllis, Beulah, and Mabel and brothers William and Milton.
Sidney lived a full, happy and blessed life. He was passionate about gardening and loved hosting locals to have photos taken in front of his flowers. He loved telling jokes and silly diddies and was always happiest surrounded by his family. He was a warden for, St. George's Anglican Church, Robinsons for many years. The church was very important to him. In his early years he worked for the Department of Highways and Transportation. Once retired, he loved spending his time hunting and fishing with his son Wayne, spending quality time with his two grand-daughters, and tending to his vegetable gardens and flower beds.
He will be deeply missed and forever loved in memory. Many thanks and appreciation to Bay St. George Long Term Care for their professional and personal care for Sidney and his family. As expressions of Sympathy, and in lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to St. George's Anglican Church Memorial fund.
