George “Randy” Morris Sr. of Surrency, Ga lost his brave battle with cancer on September 10, 2020. Randy passed away at the age of 63 in Brunswick, Georgia surrounded by his loving children, Andy, Jaime, and Gary.
Randy was the son of the late Parnell "Buddy" Morris and the survived Martha June Morris. He grew up in the Fourth District area of Appling County, where he became very fond of the outdoors and its beauty. Randy spent his days aiding his father on their family farm and caring for his four sisters, Margaret, Debbie, Beth, and Tammy.
When Randy was not fishing, hunting, or farming, he found himself starring on the Appling County Pirate football and baseball teams. After graduation, his baseball talents led him to Brunswick, Ga where he was tabbed as “Team Captain” of the 1976-1977 Brunswick Junior College baseball team.
Athletics were a very important part of Randy’s life. He used his love for baseball to create lifelong relationships and countless fellowships with his dearest friends. It is safe to say that any kid who played for Randy experienced a love and bond that extended far beyond the playing field. His leadership skills also led him to be an active and contributing member of his beloved church First United Methodist of Downtown Brunswick, Ga.
Randy was also a loyal and dedicated agent at Driggers Realty. A tight-knit work family, the Driggers crew always made the office feel like a home away from home. His genuine approach and loving personality made him a perfect match for his profession. He often went above and beyond to make a client feel comfortable with his services. It was no secret for those who knew him that it was just Randy being Randy.
The life that Randy lived on this earth was deserving of some of the highest honors and accolades. Undoubtedly, the greatest honor he claimed was being “Granddaddy.” He dedicated the last 15 years of his life spreading his love for hunting, fishing, and sports with his 7 grandchildren, William, Bennett, Tripp, Addie, Charlie, Mary Camryn, and Ellie. His love for them was evident in every moment they shared.
Randy was a beloved friend, coach, father, and Granddaddy. The loving and caring times that he shared with everyone were cherished and will be missed dearly.
Survivors include his children, George R. (Jenni) Morris, Jr., Jaime Morris (Josh) McDonald, Gary Alan (Christen) Morris; mother, Martha June Morris; grandchildren, George R. Morris, III, Addison Elizabeth Morris, William McDonald, Bennett McDonald, Charles McDonald, Mary Camryn Morris, and Ellie Lynn Morris; sisters, Margaret (Mike) Redwine, Beth Morris, Debbie Woodall, & Tammy (Kevin) Lewis; nephews and nieces, David (Leslie) Redwine, Chuck (Amy) Woodall, Brooke Lewis, and Kale (Taylor) Lewis; great nephews and nieces, Caleb Redwine, Brody Redwine, Madison Redwine, Ron Woodall, Suzanna Woodall, Janie Beth Woodall, and Levi Lewis.
