Eugene C. Morris aka “Gene” or “Chris”
Born April 8, 1961, died September 22, 2016 at his home unexpectedly at the age of 55.
He is a lifelong resident of Tampa and enjoyed the diversity the area offered. He loved science fiction, non-fiction, movies, books, music, knowledge, family, friends and a good conversation.
He was a unique individual that did not change to please someone. He worked hard and was a good employee. He lived modestly to pursue things which peaked his interest. He was a member of Friends of the Library and wrote book reviews, was a brown belt in Kung Fu, fed stray cats, wrote a novel, pondered the vastness of the universe and searched for spiritual truths.
He is preceded in death by grandparents, Eugene L. Webb, Edith “DeeDee” Webb, Henry Eugene Doyle.
