Obituary: Campbell Allen Morris – Oct. 20, 2015


Campbell Allen Morris (Cam), 78, of Richmond, VA passed away Tuesday, October 20, 2015 after a long and heroic battle with cancer. 

Cam was born in Sanderson, Texas and lived in Los Alamos, NM for 25 years before moving to Richmond. He was preceded in death by his parents, Clyde E. and Viola Allen Scott Morris, his brothers Clyde and Charles, and sisters Marjorie, Mamie and Nancy.

He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Carole, and sons Christopher (Karen) and children Spencer and Ethan of Chili, New Mexico, and Allen (Peggy) and children Rheanna, Lydia and Quinlan of Louisville, Kentucky; his sister Marie McMurry and brothers Robert and James all of Texas; sister-in-law Susie Morris of NM plus numerous nephews and nieces and other relatives and friends; and by his beloved dog Lucky.

Cam approached everything he did with gusto whether it was work, genealogy, bridge and other games, sports or fishing. Living in Los Alamos led to a life-long quest for knowledge about science and nature. He was a veteran of the US Army, a true patriot, a champion of the environment and worked tirelessly against illegal immigration.
