Kenneth "Ken" Steven Morris

Kenneth "Ken" Steven Morris of Saginaw, Michigan 

Beloved husband, father, and grandfather, passed away peacefully, with his family by his side on Thursday, June 6, 2024, at Covenant HealthCare - Harrison. He was 78 years old. Kenneth Steven Morris was born on April 19, 1946, in Brighton, Michigan, to the late Rev. Kenneth Cadman and Emily Louise (Brown) Morris. 

When he was three years old, his family moved to Armonk, New York, where his father became rector and priest of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church. He was a proud 1964 graduate of Pleasantville High School. Following graduation, Ken attended Pace University where he earned his Bachelor's Degree in History. 

He serendipitously met the love of his life, Janice "Jan" Hovey, while attending a New Years Eve gathering. They dated, fell in love, and were united in marriage on April 4, 1970, at his father's Episcopal Church in Armonk, New York. In 1977, Ken and Jan moved to Saginaw, Michigan, which quickly became their new home.

 A proponent of education, he began taking classes at Delta College where he studied computer science. Through one of his teachers, he was given the opportunity to interview at Dow Corning, becoming a Computer Data Specialist with the company for 20 years before retiring. Upon retirement he used his excellent communication and training skills to teach computer classes at Saginaw Valley State University, Delta College, and Davenport University. The role of his lifetime, one he treasured and cherished above all others, was to be a loving and devoted husband, father, and grandfather. 

Ken was a devoted and faithful member of Community Baptist Church. He was also a longtime member and financial secretary at Second Presbyterian Church. Ken was a gifted and talented guitarist, winning the heart of his wife many years ago. He was also an accomplished crocheter, keeping his hands busy and creating many beautiful rectangular pieces and Afghans over the years. Ken will forever be remembered for his kind spirit, for being an educator that made a difference in the lives of many, for his unparallelled communication skills and intellect, and for truly living an amazing life filled with many beautiful memories and stories. 

Surviving are his beloved wife of 54 years, Jan Morris of Saginaw; two children: Jessica (Anthony) Bornemann of Saginaw; Jonathan Morris and his fiancée, Alyssa Dupuis of Zilwaukee; one granddaughter, Waverly Seagraves of Saginaw; a sister-in-law, Barbara Delfs of Somers, NY; a brother-in-law, Craig (Susan) Hovey of Bend, Oregon. 

Also surviving are many extended family and dear friends. 

He was preceded in death by his parents, Rev. Kenneth and Emily Morris. Honoring Ken's wishes, cremation has taken place. 

A celebration of his life will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, June 10, 2024, at Community Baptist Church, 8331 Gratiot Road, Saginaw, MI, 48609. Pastor Douglas R. Jackson will officiate.
