Warren Cecil Morse died on Nov. 24. He was 82.

Born in Mansfield, he was a graduate of Wentworth Institute and Northeastern University as a metallurgical engineer. He worked for Leach and Garner for more than 20 years and was actively involved in the Professional Jewelers Association.

In 1963, he married Judy Barney Morse. They settled in Attleboro, where they raised their family, were active in their church and created wonderful memories with many friends. Whether it was traveling abroad, working as a craftsman on projects with the Do-Dads, or playing bridge with the Grand Slammers, there was always fun to be had with Judy and Warren. Humor and laughter followed him everywhere he went.

In retirement, he and Judy moved to Martha’s Vineyard. A great day on the Vineyard often involved clamming (his license plate read Clamah) or some other type of exploration and adventure.

On the Island, Warren met the second love of his life, Gail Farrish. They married in 2019.

Perhaps it is fitting that he died the day before Thanksgiving, for all who knew and loved him are thankful for his presence in their lives. He will be deeply missed.

He is survived by his wife Gail; daughter Karen Morse Girouard, her husband Bill and their four boys, Thomas, John, Teddy and Charlie; son Chris Morse and his wife Sheila and their three daughters, Katie, Andrea and Juliet; and daughter Robin Morse Nagle, her husband Kevin and their son Alex; a sister Jean Monroe of Taunton; brother Kenneth Morse and his wife Cheryl of North Easton; and many nieces, nephews and longtime friends.

A celebration of life is planned for early next summer.
