Morris “Morrie” Knudson, age 59, of Elk River died August 4, 2020. A private funeral service was held for Morrie Thursday, August 13th at Strike Life Tributes in Isanti. Interment was in Crystal Lake Cemetery in Minneapolis.
Morris Roddy Knudson was born on April 11, 1961 to Rodman and Helen Knudson. Morrie was born with Down Syndrome. He was happy. He loved wrestling (WWE). His favorite holidays were Christmas and Halloween. He was always helpful with chores and concerns for safety. He Graduated from Anoka High. He then went to work for Opportunity Partners making boxes until he fell. He slowly declined and went to be cared for in a group home with Patrick, who loved and cared for him. Morris had been in and out of the hospital for the past year. I am sure he is with his parents now and is pain free. He will be lovingly remembered by his cousins including his guardian, Leslie; aunt, Rose, and other relatives and friends.
