1915- 1996

Henry Alfred Morris was born on the eight of June, 1915 to
Amy Wilkinson and Alvin Morris in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad.
He was the first of their four children and their only son. His
father died when he was at a very tender age and he was raised
by his mother and grandfather. He learned much from his
grandfather since he was an avid storyteller.
He attended St. Margaret's Boys School and then a trade
school where he learned cabinet making and later on went into
construction. He was nicknamed "Tommy."
He married Daphne Le Maitre in February of 1947. Henry
travelled with a construction company to various islands. He
worked in St. Lucia, Dominica, St Croix and St. Thomas. He
finally decided to settle in St. Thomas. He worked with West
Indies Enterprises for quite some time. He was known to the
men as "Papa."
His greatest hobby was reading. He loved history and his
knowledge of such was incredible. Many who crossed his path
were amazed at the knowledge he had. He would help the
young ones with school projects. Even adults were sometimes
in awe of his teaching. He earned the nickname "Professor."
Henry was the father of seven daughters and nine sons.
Henry lived a full and happy life until he died on January
23,1996. May he rest in peace.

and we had bad. I inherited your strength and your stubboiness Your
knowledge was overwhelming. We all gained from it You were a fiend
and a professor to many. You imparted so much of your knowledge to so
many people that crossed your path. You gained a lot of respect from
them. We will not dwell on what we have lost but on what we have
gained by having you in our lives. I will miss you but Ill take comfort in
knowing that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.
You are now safe in our Saviour's loving arms.

Some thought you always spoke too grand
You were always filled with ideas, hopes and plans
But to those who would listen and give an ear
There was often wisdom from one so dear
The words that we'll cherish were your expressions of pride
You praised us Just for what we were
Now that you're gone, these words will hold true
"We can achieve great heights," Thank you.

for very little in return. Professor, may your poul rest in peace.
