Dear family: I was saddened to read of Morrie’s passing. He was a man best called “a gentleman.” Good character, gentle friend. His 61 years in practice top my 54. We compared experiences last summer. Each with a chuckle, we prided that we were the oldest and second oldest still in active practice. I will miss Morrie. God bless you all.

"Uncle" Morry was my Dad's college roommate (Princeton '58) and my godfather. Many happy memories of a true gentleman with a perpetual twinkle in his eye and a smile at the ready. A life well lived. We'll miss you Morry. Love from the Kovach family.
