Robert J. "Bob" Morris

May 31, 1939 — December 1, 2020

Robert J. “Bob” Morris, of Dover passed away peacefully on Tuesday, December 1, 2020 at Timken Mercy Hospital following a brief illness.

Born on May 31, 1939, in Dover, he was the son of the late Oliver and Olive (Poland) Morris. Robert was also preceded in death by his sisters; Jean and Bernie; brother, Bill; and Bob’s in-laws, Ralph and Lorene Harper along with several nieces and nephews.

He was a retired farmer, a Dover School bus driver, Starlight School bus driver, semi-truck driver, and a county employee. He continued to keep busy doing mowing jobs. Sitting still was not an option for him! He was a man of strong faith. He had been a member of the Dover Foursquare Church and most recently New Philadelphia First Christian Church. He will be remembered for his wonderful giving spirit and willingness to always help those in need. Anyone that knew him knew how precious his family was to him and how proud he was of each one of them.
