Bobby Lynn Morris Sr. 67, of Longview, Texas passed away at a Tyler hospital on August 20th, 2019. He was born in Hughes Springs, Texas on September 18, 1951 and was a graduate of Hughes Springs High School. Bobby worked 26 years at Lone Star Steel as an overhead crane operator pouring “hot steel”. In his follow up career he was a self employed finish carpenter remodeling homes in and around the Longview area. He was “old school” and took great pride in his superb craftsmanship. There wasn’t anything that he couldn’t do or repair. His grandson’s familiar words said it all “Give it to Paw Paw, he can fix everything”! Bobby was a Christian and loved Jesus. He enjoyed fishing and going with friends on excursions to dig for Indian artifacts. He loved searching for fossils in out of the way antique shops. His greatest joy was taking his grandchildren on outings to the circus, rodeo, fair, safari parks, and on vacation every summer. Bobby was preceded in death by his father B.F. ‘Bodie” Morris; mother Ruby Nell Morris; brother Jimmy Morris; son Bobby Morris Jr.; and granddaughter Acelynn Jean Morris.
