Stanley LeRoy Morris was called home to be with Our Lord on April 26, 2021. Stanley was born at the old Sacred Heart Hospital, Pensacola, Florida to Delores LeRoy Morris and Stanley Gilbert Morris who preceded him in death.
Stanley grew up in Myrtle Grove, Florida at the home of his maternal grandparents, Albert Irving LeRoy, Sr., and Marie Bourgot LeRoy who also preceded him in death. His grandfather taught him to love electronics, the Navy and baking pies.
Stanley attended Brown Military Academy in San Diego before entering the Navy and serving aboard the USS Nicholas for four years. After leaving the Navy Stanley began a twenty-year career as a Merchant Seaman. He told many stories about all the ports he visited throughout the world and especially the times taking supplies to Vietnam during the war.
