The Passing of Milton Morris AO - 1924 to 2019

February 27, 2019

I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Mr Milton Morris today.

I worked closely with Milton from 1993-1996 as the Business Manager for the Hunter Region Organisation of Councils.

He would go on to be a mentor and dear friend.

As a Baptist Minister, he married my husband Nick and me and christened our children.

He taught me many things and although we came from different political persuasions, we shared many beliefs and a deep commitment to the Hunter.

I will forever be indebted to him and his wisdom – “You catch more flys with honey than vinegar”.

Vale Mr Maitland.
