A celebration of the Life of Trevor Morris, 39, Murchison, will be held Tuesday July 18, 2017 at 10 a.m. at Rock Hill Baptist Church with Bro. Buddy Johnson and Bro. Eric Johnson officiating.
Private interment will follow at Morris Cemetery, China Grove, Texas.
Trevor was born Sept. 24, 1977 to parents Calvin and Diana Morris in Tyler, Texas. He graduated from North Garland High School, where he excelled in sports and other activities. After high school, Trevor served his country in the United States Marine Corps during which time he earned a rank of sergeant, and received several medals for his steadfast and distinguished service. His fellow Marines remember him as "the best Marine they ever knew."
He gave his all to everything he did, which extended to his professional and ministerial life. Trevor's service to Christ in the Gospel ministry began when God called him to preach in the year 2000, and continued until the day God called him home. After pastoring in the United States, he followed the Lord in foreign missionary service to the country of Ecuador, where God used him to begin a church in the city of Cuenca in the mountains of Ecuador. After returning from Ecuador, he worked as general manager, and later vice-president of Burton Oil Service Operations. Most recently, he served as Pastor of Union Hill Baptist Church in Brownsboro, Texas, where he is dearly loved and remembered. He was most passionate for the glory of God, the work of missions and his precious family.
Trevor is survived by: his wife, Nafisa Morris; children, Kylor, Cole, Lane, Cana and Boaz; father and mother, Calvin and Diana Morris; sister, Tiffany Shelby and her husband Ryan; grandmother, Frances Smith Cantrell; many aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews and cousins; his beloved church family of Union Hill Baptist Church in Brownsboro; and a host of friends.
Pallbearers will be Ryan Shelby, Preston Burton, Joshua Salinas, Steve Goodrich, Teddy Austin, Bill Wallace, Eric Johnson and Buddy Johnson.
Visitation for family and friends will be held Monday evening at Rock Hill Baptist Church for 5-7 p.m.
