Conneaut- Raymond T. Morris, Jr., passed away peacefully on Saturday, June 4, 2022 at his home, surrounded by family. He was born on May 31, 1958 in Conneaut, Ohio the eldest son of Melodie (Olsen) and Raymond T. Morris, Sr. “Zemo” as he was known by most, graduated from Conneaut High School Class of 1976. After high school, he served four years in the Army and was stationed in Germany. He was raised Catholic and always kept the faith. Zemo worked as a contractor and was always “The Boss.” He was the most fanatic Cleveland Browns fan out there, always rooting for his team, despite all odds. He was an animal lover with a heart of gold. Though he was the “nicest asshole” you’d ever meet, deep down he was a kind soul willing to do anything for anyone. Zemo always surrounded himself with family and friends regardless of the occasion and loved them all with his whole heart. He is survived by his children, Amelia “Amy” (Mackenzie) Ylisaari, Kayla (Brian) Darden and Tyler Payne; several grandchildren; his siblings, Mary (Louis) Szabo, Margaret “Peggy” Licea, Joe (Lisa) Morris, Melodie “Dee Dee” Morris and Melissa (Doug) Morris-Bort; sister-in-law, Bridgette Morris and many nieces and nephews. Zemo was preceded in death by his parents; brother, John T. Morris; and a brother-in-law, Tony Licea.
