He was an avid tennis player who played well into his 94th year of life. But his favorite sport was football. So meeting him during Super Bowl meant taking a back seat to watching the game.
He also loved music, movies, reading, and most of all his family. He was a forever learner, often taking classes at the community college to keep his mind sharp and keep up on what was happening. He liked his scotch, his gin, and his whiskey. Whenever he had a glass, there were laughs and good times to be had. He believed in life and lived life to the fullest.
I would’ve loved to have interviewed him in person for this project. But like I said, to me Morrie was more interested in giving me a smile and a handshake and a simple hello. It’s hard to say goodbye.
