Paul was born February 6, 1941 in Lawrence, KS to Leona Katherine (Fears) and Fred Ralph Morse. He was a 1959 graduate of De Soto High School and attended Mechanic School in Shawnee Mission, KS. He worked on the family farm, “Riverview Farms”, with his dad and brother. He continued to farm in the area until the flood of 1993, when he retired and moved to Wellsville. Paul served in the U S Army. He was a former member of the De Soto City Council. In his retirement, Paul owned and operated PM Tractor Equipment in Edgerton where he was highly sought after as a tractor mechanic.

He enjoyed being a farmer, fishing, target shooting and in his early years, flying his Cessna airplane. Paul wasn’t happy unless he was working and he never passed up an opportunity to help someone in need. He loved his girls more than anything, and he will be dearly missed.

He was preceded in death by his parents, former wife Judy Morris Stoker, and grandson Jacob.

Paul is survived by children: Beth Cavanaugh and Mike of Evergreen, CO, Kimberly Brown of Ozark, AR, Dawn Buehler and Dennis and Heather Noble and Kent all of Eudora, KS; brother Ted Morse and Marge of De Soto, KS; eight grandchildren: Caitlyn, Kevin, Cera, Cady, Drew, Taylor, Jared and Levi; one great grandson, Gage and former wives Nancy Caldwell Gravitt of Stover, MO and Kay Toedman Rose of Lenexa, KS.
