Dear Dottie & Edwin,
We are so sorry for your loss and shocked by the suddenness. I've known Maurice since 1966. He was so intelligent and helpful. He brought liveliness and humor into every get together, both at work and in his private life. We miss him so much.

MAURICE was a Nuclear Engineering classmate at the University of Tennessee. He was a bright, friendly, happy fellow. I also knew him at ORNL; didn't see him often but once was very helpful on a technical matter - a very informed and talented engineer. We also shared Engineering Co-op experiences. Joe Little

Maurice was always a cheerful person at work. It was a pleasure knowing him and working with him. He contributed a lot to the nuclear field and hopefully the future generation will continue to remember him. A great loss of a friend and colleague, indeed.

I am so sad to learn of Maurice's passing. While I have only known him several years, I felt I had a true friend. We met in the O'Connor Band. He greeted me warmly the first day and wanted to know what brand of horn(s) I had. I had no idea of his deep knowledge or love of instruments. We spent quite a bit of time discussing and sharing info about horns. He had such love and enthusiasm in his interests and was willing to talk and share. And then we found out we loved old recordings, radios, and even owned Triumph sports cars - albeit many years ago. What an honor to have him as a friend. Dottie and family, I did not get a chance to know you. You are in my heart as you mourn your husband, father and grandfather. He was a wonderful man and made a difference in my life. Peace. Alan Wallace

Most of Maurice's and my careers overlapped, and we worked very closely with each other. Hw was a good friend who will be greatly missed.

David Morgan on Jun 17, 2020

I always looked forward to band days on Wednesday at the O’Conner Center. I usually went directly to Maurice to hear a story or see what instrument he brought for show and tell. He was a true friend and will be missed by all. Prayers are sent your way for a great loss.

Maurice was a wonderful person and will be missed by many, especially Dottie.

Bonnie Manning on Jun 16, 2020

The Hancock Historical Society appreciated the interest and love of genealogy that Maurice provided. We will treasure the many articles he contributed.

Ron Leinius on Jun 16, 2020

Maurice was such a wonderful member of our lunch group. I looked forward to seeing him each month. He could be counted on for at least one funny story, and for taking way too long to tell it! We will miss him. My condolences to his family.

Richard Greene on Jun 15, 2020

So sorry for your loss. My favorite memory was Morris, as we called him, had made a bow and arrow and needed something to shoot. A neighborhood dog filled need. Morris was to shoot behind it but the dog turned around and ran into the arrow which stuck in it's side. Afraid it would die and the arrow would be identified, we took off after the dog, caught it, removed the arrow which was only stuck in a piece of skin. The dog was ok and we learned a lesson. Again, sorry for your loss. Richard Greene
