Obituary for Frankie Don Morris

Frankie Don  Morris
Following a valiant battle with cancer, Frankie Don Morris passed away January 6, 2019 peacefully in his home and surrounded by his family.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Frankie Pierce Morris and Bessie (Borsellino) Morris.

Frankie Don is survived by his daughter, Jennifer Felton and her husband, Clayton, of Waco, TX; his sister, Debbie Robinson, of Retreat, TX; nephew, Jerry Robinson; two grandsons, Conlee and Tucker Felton; his God-Daughter, Racheal Carney; special family friend Pam Alexander; and numerous uncles, aunts, cousins, and friends.

Frankie Don was born October 18, 1952 in Corsicana, TX where he became a lifelong resident. He graduated from Corsicana High School and spent the rest of his life serving almost 20 years in the Army National Guard, and later working in industrial mechanics.

Frankie Don was a man with many hats…and if you knew him, you remember they were always cocked to one side. He was strong, stubborn and unquestionably opinionated, which he mainly attributed to his Italian roots. He was honest almost to a fault, but would give the shirt off his back to a stranger without a moment’s hesitation. He was characterized by a true grit that was evident as he outlived an 18-month cancer prognosis by almost 6 years. He maintained this spirited personality and a tender and warm heart right up to the very last beat.

Family was everything to Frankie Don. He especially adored being “Grumps” to his two grandsons, picking on his daughter and waiting for her reaction of “Oh, DAAAAD,” and being lifelong and very best friends with his devoted sister. However, you didn’t have to be blood related to be considered family with him. With arms wide open, he formed countless meaningful relationships and extended the definition of family well beyond its traditional limits.

Frankie Don loved riding his motorcycle and playing golf whenever the opportunity presented itself, but mostly he enjoyed quiet time and a simple routine with his dog, Oscar, by his side.

Frankie Don was a very proud Catholic and a member of Immaculate Conception Church in Corsicana. He was also a member of the Knights of Columbus and served as Grand Knight in 20013-2014.

Visitation with the family will be held on Wednesday, January 9, 2019 at Corley Funeral Home from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. A rosary, led by Deacon Lewis Palos, will follow the visitation at 7:00 p.m. Funeral services are scheduled for Thursday, January 10, 2019 at the Immaculate Conception Church at 10:00 a.m. with Father Marco Rangel officiating.

Serving as pallbearers during the services are Richard Benton, Kevin Farmer, Mike Gamez, Tommie Hall, Jr., Paul Marino, Tommy Oliphant, and Jerry Robinson, Jr.

Memorial gifts may be made to Immaculate Conception Church, 3000 TX-22, Corsicana, TX 75110; to the Cancer Research Institute, https://www.cancerresearch.org; or to the charity of one’s choice.
