James Terry Morris “JT” was born on December 17, 1941 in Joiner, Arkansas, Mississippi County, to Ruben and Mary Morris.
At the age of 78, he earned his wings on Saturday, November 14, 2020 surrounded by his daughters.
James, better known as JT, PaPa, Bear or Uncle JT, to many, moved to Fort Wayne, Indiana in 1960. He worked odd jobs until becoming employed with General Electric Company and retired after 34 years of service.
James was a avid and dedicated bowler and softball player (and was quite good at it). He was also a member of Knights of Pythias Strotarian Lodge.
