Jerry Arthur Morse, Jr., the man who single-handedly reintroduced the fashionable beard for men across the country, was carried away by angels and welcomed into Heaven on 01/24/2021. He was born at Harris Hospital in Fort Worth, TX on 12/13/1963, to the late Jerry Arthur Morse, Sr. and Hazel Marie Curry.
A graduate of LD Bell High School, Jerry enlisted in the Texas Army National Guard where he served as an Armor Crewman and Tank System Mechanic. Jerry was a man of many names. To many, he was known as Bubba; his amazing daughters called him Dad, JerBo, & Daddio; and perhaps the best name ever, thanks to his wonderful grandchildren, was PeePaw. Like his many names, Jerry touched many hearts. He loved being around his friends and family. He was kind, genuine, and fiercely loyal to his loved ones. Jerry was a major fixture in a family unit that was anything but traditional. If he liked you, he was the sweetest person with the biggest heart.
Jerry loved fishing, too, and just being outdoors in general. He loved to wander around his property in Decatur and could sometimes be seen wandering around the land of other people. He was a mischievous kinda guy. Oh, and his sense of humor! There was nothing like this man’s sense of comedic timing.
A firm believer in Christ, Jerry’s spirit lives on for eternity in the Kingdom of Heaven and in the hearts of all those who love him. Even so, he is missed dearly. Jerry was preceded in death by his father, Jerry Arthur Morse, Sr., and brother, Chris Roberson. He is survived by his mother, Hazel Marie Curry, and step-mother, Nancy Morse; siblings, Tommy Morse, Tina Edwards, Shelly Roberson, Kelly Gutierrez and her husband Rocky, and Stacy Barfield and her husband Leroy; amazing daughters, Amanda Price, and Samantha Cervantes and her husband Tony, and their mother, Teresa Price; two beautiful grandchildren, McKinley & Josh Price; and a whole host of additional relatives and friends.
His life will be celebrated on 02/21/2021 at 1:00 PM at Serenity Springs, 3865 Farm to Market Rd 858 Ben Wheeler, Tx 75754. Attendees are encouraged to follow social distancing protocols and wear masks when closer than 6 feet. Jerry wasn’t one to get all fancied up, so the manner of dress for everyone should be comfortable and casual. Food will be served.
