LAWRENCE — The University of Kansas community is remembering electrician Terrence “Bones” Morris, who died Feb. 22 at age 60.

"I am deeply saddened at the death of Terrence ‘Bones’ Morris, who proudly and dutifully served our university for decades,” said Chancellor Douglas A. Girod. “On behalf of all of KU, I offer my sincere condolences to his family, friends and to all his university colleagues."

Morris first worked for the university as a cook in the early 1990s. After leaving KU, he returned in 1996 to work for Student Housing doing general maintenance and repairs. In 2010, he became an electrician for Student Housing. He joined Facilities Service & Maintenance in 2012 and worked as an electrician there until his death.

A celebration of life will be from 2-4 p.m. June 26 at The Barn at Randelwood Estates, 1629 East 800 Road, Lawrence.
