Vic Morris

Retired school principal Vic Morris known to many peninsula residents as a dedicated volunteer, grew up on the Atherton Tableland town of Herberton.

After finishing school he studied to be a schoolteacher and achieved his aim in 1957.

He married Melba in the same year. The couple had three children, Debbie, Colin and Mervyn. He taught at a number of Queensland country schools, becoming a school principal in 1975 and continued in that role for the next 16 years.

He retired in 1991. A staunch Rotarian, he worked hard in the fundraising capacity for that volunteer group.

After settling in Woody Point, he progressively joined Redcliffe Meals on Wheels. The Lions, The Historical Society and the Neighbourhood Watch.

Vic was a member of the Woody Point group for 13 years and last year received the highest NHW award possible, the ‘Gold Award’ for his outstanding service to the program.

He also championed the cause of the Flying Doctor Service.

Vic wrote three books two of which are for sale in the community. ‘You can’t be an Absentee Farmer’ and ‘A piece of String’, both are available for purchase via the Crime Prevention Unit located at the Redcliffe Police Station.

Vic passed away in May 2015 aged 79 years.
