Morris was a native of Keene with deep family roots in this city dating back to the 1750s. He attended Keene High School and attained his college degree from Keene State College.
Morris was a well-known area businessman who started and owned Medoff Insurance for many years. He was on the board of directors for numerous local charity and non-profit organizations such as the American Cancer Society, the Y.M.C.A., and the Monadnock United Way.
Morris and Lynn met as teenagers in New York while attending school. They soon married and decided to settle and raise their family in Keene. The family was very important to him and he spoke with pride of every achievement of his sons and grandchildren no matter how large or small it was. With family gatherings not held as frequently due to the pandemic, he spoke glowingly about the ability to attend a “socially distant” birthday party for one of his great-grandchildren as recently as July. Many happy family events took place over the years at his and Lynn’s favorite gathering spot at Otter Brook Dam. His sons will remember the numerous antiquing road trips throughout New England with mom and dad that always included tracking down a delicious meal at an obscure restaurant.
Morris leaves behind his beloved wife of over 61 years Lynn, two sons David and Bill Medvidofsky, and their spouses Diana and Kathy, six grandchildren, and 8 great-grandchildren. He will also be missed by his four siblings Leecia, Marcia, Leah, and Nathan, and their spouses. He was predeceased by two siblings Moreen and Don.
