Pastor Stanley Morris

February 22, 1949 — September 14, 2022

Stanley Morris also known as Stanley Kelley was born on February 22, 1949 in Kearns, TX, to his mother, Annie C. Kelley. When Stanley was 2 years old in 1951, his family moved from Kearns, TX and settled on the northside of Fort Worth. As a child, Stanley was described as rambunctious, energetic, and soft spoken. Stanley attended Kirkpatrick High School and shortly after completing high school, he began his 45-year career with the railroad.

Stanley met his wife of fifty-one years, Pamela, in 1970. Within three months of meeting, they were married and their fifty-one-year love affair began. From this union they have four children, Latusha (Tasha), LaShaunda, Stanley Jr., and Latiesha, who came into our lives at 10 years old.

Stanley had numerous hobbies and interests. He was an avid sports lover and lifetime Dallas Cowboys fan. He coached football, basketball and baseball teams for the TCU Pee Wee League while his son played and then for many years after his son was out of Little League sports. He also supported and encouraged his children and grandchildren to participate in sports. He was a lover of classic Rhythm & Blues and has a large original vinyl collection. He also had a love for traveling and going on adventures. Often, as a family, we took summer vacations together. His children and grandchildren enjoy his passion for traveling as they continue to explore the world today. In 2020, when there was less ability to travel, Stanley and Pamela purchased a recreational vehicle (RV) and began their adventures RVing across the state of Texas.

Stanley was a machine operator for Union Pacific railroad and he received many awards and accolades for his duties as an operator. He worked for the railroad industry for 45 years when he retired from Union Pacific in 2014. He was well known and respected by his coworkers and those enduring friendships continue today.

Stanley and his wife were foster parents for the state of Texas for over 15 years. After retiring from the ministry of foster children, this led to a greater calling. In late 2013, Stanley was ordained as a minister. He, along with his wife, are the pastors of Our Place Ministries and Life Center. Our Place has suffered a great loss of their beloved pastor.

After Stanley recommitted to his relationship with Christ, he studied daily and read the Bible from cover-to-cover twice. Stanley was truly committed to serving his church and the membership. Stanley can be described as a gentle giant, and his communication style can only be described as calm, firm, and always kind.

He loved, was proud of, and spoke very highly of his Williams family. Until his date of sunset September 14, 2022, Stanley was a loving and devoted husband, son, father, cousin, uncle, and grandfather. His memories will be cherished in the hearts of all who knew him.

Stanley is preceded in death by: his father and his brother: Skyler Morris Memories will be cherished by his beloved wife Pamela Denise; his mother: Annie C Kelley; his children: Latusha Penson (Mark), LaShaunda Morris, Stanley Jr. and Latiesha Frazier; his grandchildren: Lauryn, Laurynce, Landon, Alisha, Amaria, Lindsey, Jeslian & Avayea and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.
