Herbert Patrick Morris, fondly known as Herb, 64 of Westminster, Maryland, passed away suddenly on August 17th, 2023. He was a loving husband, father, son, brother, uncle, cousin, and friend. He was born November 14th, 1958, to the late Mary Ellen Morris (Cavey) and David Herbert Morris.
Herb worked as a mason with Mar-Ja LTD. of Upperco, MD for many years. Later, Herb worked for Richards Masonry of Westminster, MD up until his passing.
He was a talented athlete and coach. He enjoyed many sports including softball, bowling, and football. He never lost his competitive spirit and continued to engage in many games such as cornhole and spades in his later years. Herb was a fan of Baltimore, MD sports, specifically the Orioles and the Ravens. He rarely sat down except to watch a game and drink a Natty Light. Everyone that knew Herb admired his hardworking and caretaking nature. There was never a time that he was not looking after his family and friends. He was always there for those in need and prepared to lend a hand to anyone who may ask.
Herb had a soft spot for all his dogs throughout his life, always showing love to any that crossed his path. Herb had a sarcastic sense of humor and was incredibly thrifty. He understood the value of a dollar and went to great lengths to save money through couponing, yard sales, various side jobs, and much more.
Herb was an incredibly intelligent and curious man. There were few subjects that he did not have knowledge or an opinion about. His many endearing quirks will not be soon forgotten.
