A native of Charlotte, NC, Ted attended Carolina Military Academy in Maxton, NC; Camden Military Academy in Camden, SC; and Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte. Ted was a horticulturalist by trade, but his true passion was helping others. For the past several decades, he led the Alcoholic Anonymous program at Park Road Baptist Church and recently earned his thirty-year sobriety chip. He also was a spiritual leader in the practices of the Old Religion of Italy. 


Ted is survived by his loving wife, Heather Louise, and his step-son, Tyler Hawk Richards. He was preceded in death by his mother, Harriet Ashcraft Morris, and is also survived by his father, Samuel “Ted” Ross Morris, Jr., of Charlotte; his sister and brother-in-law, Ann and Jim Hogshead of Charlotte; his nephew, Jaime Allison, and his spouse, Julie, of Richmond, VA; his niece, Jessica Merchant, and her spouse, Nate, of Asheville, NC; and his niece, Carrie Dosch, and her spouse, Taylor, of Kailua, HI; as well as five great-nephews and nieces.
