Morris worked for the Great Northern Paper Company for 39 years in the wood yard. He always referred to his machinery as his “Tonka Toys”. Friends referred to him as “Moe”. He loved new gadgets and toys, and always had to have the latest and greatest of whatever caught his attention. Above all else, though, he loved spending time with his family, who will miss him dearly.
He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Dorothy (Burleigh) Day; a daughter, Sharon Machia; two brothers, Everett and Millard Day; two sisters, Hazel Beach and Gertrude McReavy and her husband Paul; a sister in law, Bernice Nickerson; seven grandchildren, Jennifer McLaughlin, John Mills, Jr. Christina Rineholt, Nicholas Gagnon, Angelia Olds, Laura Day, and Kendal Moore; eighteen great grandchildren; two great great grandchildren; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
