June 27, 1943 - July 18, 2021
James Morris, a beloved member of the Fellowship of Friends at Apollo, completed his task today, July 18, 2021, at 11:44 a.m., having suffered a stroke a few days earlier.
James was born on June 27, 1943, and turned 78 on his last birthday. He joined the school in Los Angeles in April 1974, and lived at Apollo since moving here in 1975, soon starting to work at the Fellowship Press Room, and more recently for the gardens and Gatehouse. He was a strong supporter of the performing arts at Apollo from the beginning. James’ gentle presence and smiling countenance served as a light to his friends and all those who met him.
On behalf of all who knew you, we thank thee.
In loving presence,
for the Elysian Society
Funeral Service Text: James Morris 2021-07
The smallest sprout shows there is really no death
,And if ever there was it led forward life, and does not wait at the end to arrest it,
And ceas’d the moment life appear’d.
All goes onward and outward, nothing collapses,
And to die is different from what any one supposed, and luckier.
