Charles Eugene Morris

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — Charles Eugene Morris, 76, of Keavy, Ky., passed away at his residence on Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2013. 

He was born April 22, 1937, in Laurel County, Ky., the son of the late Charlie and Rhoda Cobb Morris.

In 1962, Gene took up the game of golf.  After his retirement, he was on the golf course every day, weather and health permitting.  With several holes in one during his golfing career, on March 22 and 23, 2005, he accomplished a rare feat by hitting a hole in one on two consecutive days.  He was a 2001 Laurel County Sports Hall of Fame Inductee.
