My dad, the late retired Sheriff Larry Morris was one of the five founders of the ranches. He signed the loan to get the ranch off the ground. He served as sheriff of Monroe County for twenty-six years and then county judge for six years before dying in office on March 25, 2010. He loved children and hated child abuse. I would love to see him and the other four founders recognized more.
