William James Morris of Kincardine died Sept. 8, 2022, at the age of 90. Born Nov. 19, 1931, he was shaped by the Scottish-Canadian neighbourhood of Bowie Avenue in Toronto. Survived by his son, Watson (Nini); nieces, Nancy (Wayne), Diane, and Kathleen (Don); and nephew, David; and Susan (John) Gauch. Predeceased by his wife, Ruth Joanne Morris (nee Langdon); sister, Joan, and brother-in-law, Ted Ault; and cousins, Betty (Bill) Shaw, and Bill (Evelyn) Paul. You could often find Bill cooking up a gourmet storm at home, enjoying engaging conversation with family and friends. He had a seriousness that was engaging yet entirely respectful of others. Often discussions with Bill would lead people to value more fully their own thoughts and ideas. A true scholar, he continued his passion for social-political theory, political strategy, religious studies and theology well into his retirement and final days. Memorial donations to a charity of your choice, would be appreciated as expressions of sympathy. Gospel of Thomas 70, “If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth that which is within you, what you do not bring forth will kill you; Ecclesiastes 10:1-20; Matthew 10:16-20
