Earl Morris passed June 26, 2014 at home, Mission
Home, Greene County, VA surrounded by his loving
family. He was born on February 13, 1938 in Greene

Naymon received his GED while in the US Army,
1961 – 1963 and serving in the Panama Canal. He
worked for the Virginia Department of Highway from
1964 to 1997 when he retired.
He married his love, Betty Lou Shifflett on
December 31, 1970 in White Hall, VA and together
they had two children, Lisa Mae Vick and her
husband, Cory and their children, Morgan, Daniel,
Casey and Ryan and Anthony Phillip Morris and his

Eugene Gordon Shifflett, son of James O. Shifflett.
In addition to his parents he was preceded in
death by his sister, Velma Marie Shifflett, wife of
the late, John Shifflett.
Naymon was a good man of simple pleasures. You
could always find him hunting for deer, bear,
groundhog, or rabbits. As the years passed and his
collection of guns and hunting dogs grew, you would
find Morgan, the oldest granddaughter, going with
him whenever she could. As Naymon grew more tired
and unable, Morgan would go and find what he had
Naymon was very helpful with his family history
and for many others in the area. He was well known
and liked for his kindness and knowledge of hunting.
Many hours would be spent talking and sharing
stories of a good hunt. He was always willing to
lend a helping hand. Naymon attended Nortonsville
Church of God and he loved the Lord.
He had a very sharp mind right up until the very
end. He had many visitors the last several weeks of
his life both from dear family and friends. He would
be lying in his bed and you would think he was
asleep and would chime into the conversation with
out missing a thing. He enjoyed each and everyone.
He will be greatly missed. We love you Naymon and
will miss you always.
