Brian Keith Morris, 61, of Danville, KY, entered his external home and won his battle against cancer on September 11, 2019. He fought bravely without faltering, leaving a legacy of strength and determination for those whom he loved. Keith was blessed on this earth with two sets of parents, whom he loved deeply, Peggy Williams of Hawesville and the late Ralph Morris also Cletus and Opal Morris. Keith adored his grandkids and he treasured spending time with them. Many precious memories will live forever in the hearts of Aubrey, Nathan, Maddie, Will and Quentin. They will share his wisdom and the memories of Pappy with little Brody Keith, his middle namesake. Keith was an avid fisherman and told great stories of his excursions. He also loved to watch Nascar and UK Basketball with his fiancée, Becky Newcom. Keith thoroughly found enjoyment in watching horror movies with his daddy’s girl, Goldie. She was the light of his life and he was so proud of all her accomplishments. He was always her #1 fan. As Goldie says, “I was always his angel and now he is mine.”
Keith possessed the ability to light up the room with his buddly, deep down belly laughs and big bright smile. Not one to brag, but he loved to get the family together to taste the food prepared by the BBQ master. Truly, his big heart and the kind spirit will be by all those who were blessed to know him.
