Barry Joseph Morris, 30, died as the result of an accident, while driving his UPS delivery truck, in Crosby, N.D. on Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2013.
Barry was born to Ben and Patty Morris in Lakeview on Aug. 25, 1983. After graduating from Lakeview High School in 2002, he attended Lane Community College in Eugene for two years. He stayed in Eugene for a few years working at various mill jobs before returning to Lakeview in 2009. He spent some time living and working on his Dad’s farm in Denio and eventually ended up working on the Pipeline.
Barry moved to Williston, N.D. in 2011 to look for work in the oil fields. He finally accepted a job driving for United Parcel Service and was very happy with his new position. He and Sadie Lynn Jason were married in Williston on Oct. 11, 2013.
Barry enjoyed sharing his great artistic talent with others. He was a real “people person” who thoroughly loved being with and helping others. His huge smile and unforgettable laugh was evidence of his contentment with life.

He is survived by his wife, Sadie of Williston; daughter, Zoe Rose of Williston; parents, Ben and Patty Morris of Lakeview; brother, Shawn Morris of Lakeview; sister, Aileen Morris of Portland and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
