Candler - Rodney K Morris, II, age 78, passed away on Friday, October 15, 2021.

Rodney was born July 29, 1943 in Florida where he grew up until making his home in Buncombe County, nestled in the beautiful mountains in Western North Carolina where he met Carolyn Lowery who later became his wife, and together they shared 30 wonderful years of marriage.

Mr. Morris proudly served his country in the U.S. Marine Corps in Vietnam. He was employed at BellSouth for 33 dedicated years where he had made many long-lasting friendships. Rodney enjoyed being outdoors in any way he could, whether he was involved in competition shooting, hunting with friends, or fishing. He also loved to travel, and above all else, being with his family. Rodney’s memory will be cherished by all those who knew him and he will be greatly missed.

Surviving are his adoring wife, children, step-children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, brother, and sister.

A graveside service to honor and remember the life of Rodney K Morris will be held 2:00 pm Monday, November 15, 2021 at the Western Carolina State Veterans Cemetery in Black Mountain.

Crawford / Ray Funeral Home is honored to be caring for the Morris family.
