Gary R. Morriss

Gary R. Morriss, ET2(SS), Reactor Controls Division, served with us on the Bates from 74-76. I was just informed by his nephew, Samuel Murphy, that Gary passed away about two years ago.

He is survived by his wife, Jean.

Fair winds and following seas, Gary. You were our brother. You will be missed.

Gary was kind to me when I came aboard. As a mess crank Gary helped me qual aft and always was a really nice guy. In those days a kind word of encouragement made all the difference in the world. He is dearly missed in my book.
Fair winds brother.
