Colby Byram Morris

October 30, 2002 — March 23, 2022

Colby Byram Morris, 19, died March 23, 2022 in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Colby was born on October 30, 2002 to Lacey and Todd Morris. Colby attended Munford Elementary, Munford Middle, and he graduated from Munford High School in 2021. He was a member of the Nationally recognized Munford High School Marching Band. Colby had many exciting experiences with the band including marching in the Rose Bowl Parade on New Years Day 2019 in Pasadena, California. He was currently attending The University of Tennessee Chattanooga majoring in communications. Despite his many hardships, Colby grew into an amazing young man. He was so smart, and he had an incredible memory. He loved history, politics, and religion. (He despised math!) Colby had a passion for helping others and recently began volunteering at a food bank for the homeless. He wanted to make a difference and often spoke about the desire to fix a system that he saw as broken. Colby had a great love for all types of music, movies and art. He had such an eclectic style. He expressed himself best through writing, and Colby hoped one day to make that his career. Colby was shy and quiet in public but around family and friends, his true personality shined. He was silly and goofy and had the best sense of humor. He kept everyone around him laughing. Colby was so kind and loving. He had the sweetest spirit. He brought such joy to our lives and we are devastated by his loss. Colby was preceded in death by both his mother, Lacey Byford Morris, and his father, Todd Bryan Morris. His parents loved him completely. His grandfather, Byram Byford, also preceded him in death. Colby is survived by his aunts, Stacey Stanfill and Cynthia Tucker, who adopted him after his parents died. He was the lone boy in a house of seven women, and he completed our family. He made us whole. He also leaves behind his sisters/cousins: Jessica Stanfill, Megan Stanfill (Neil Kagan), Rachel Barber (Hunter), Victoria Stanfill , and Emma Stanfill, his nephew Elijah Barber and his niece Harper Dean Barber, his maternal grandmother Patricia Byford, his paternal grandparents Barry and Shirley Prestige, and his uncle, Jerry Morris. Also left grieving are a host of close family, friends and classmates. A public memorial visitation will take place on Wednesday. March 30, 2022 from 6pm- 8pm at the Covington Funeral Home in Covington, Tennessee. As we attempt to make sense of this unimaginable loss we are comforted knowing that our sweet boy is resting peacefully in Lacey’s arms.
