Hike would like you to know that his work here is done.  He received a call, a sort of an offer you can’t refuse, for an appointment from which he will not be returning. This assignment comes with a huge sign-on bonus- a reunion with family and friends he has not seen in a long time.

Hike had a lifelong love affair with the St. Lawrence River.  He also loved rides in the countryside, telling stories, Archie Bunker, Reeses cups, murder mysteries, politics and Bush Beer- not necessarily in that order. He was an awesome craftsman who remodeled the family camp from the ground up. He had a knack for putting others first and he was a World War Two veteran.

The women in his life were numerous. He particularly fancied smart women.  He loved his mom, Sarah (deceased), his wife,
Audrey (deceased) and he worshipped his three daughters, Susan, Sandra and Connie.

He always wore a hat and was particularly fond of his Scottish tartan cap.

When Hike took off on his new assignment, he left behind three daughters- Susan (Jim) Pepe, Sandra (Dan) McBride and Connie (Jack) Morris-Pease, eight grandchildren (Michael, Mathew, Danielle, Marty, Audrey Kathryn and the Pepe boys) and five delightful great grandchildren.

Hike would appreciate donations to “Save the River", 409 Riverside Drive, Clayton, New York 13624. But, instead of donations or flowers, he would hope that you do an unexpected and unsolicited act of kindness in his name.

The family would like to thank The Nottingham Nursing Home staff for their great care they provided for our father Hike.  

His daughters will be holding a private family service for him.

Susan, I am so very sorry for your loss. Your Dad led a wonderful life, created a wonderful family, and leaves you all with fantastic memories for a lifetime. You and I were very lucky to have such strong and loving men for our dads. During this time of COVID it is not possible to give you a hug, but know I am sending you a great big hug right now. God Bless you and your family. Until we see each other again,
Cousin Noreen

To Connie, Sandy, and Susan, and families,

I remember Hike and my dad Bob Smith taking us all down the BIG Morristown hill tobogganing.
They were fearless and quite the troopers having to haul us back up time and again. I'm quite certain they would rather have been enjoying a beer.
I was proud to see Hike take his much earned Honor Flight this past year!!
I will remember his smile and contagious laugh. He made me feel as though I was family always.
I will miss seeing him on the river.

Sorry to hear that Hike had passed away. I finally got to meet him at my moms 90th birthday (Marjorie Morris Kirby). I wish I could have spoke more with him about the family history on the Morris side. I'm sure he is catching up with the family in heaven.

I am very sorry to hear about Hike passing away. He was a quiet man but he was easy to talk to. I am sure he is with Audrey! Again, my deepest regrets.6
