Tribute

Shane Wolff Morris was born in Anchorage, Alaska on June 9, 1980. His parents, Raymond and Carolyn Morris and two older brothers, Lance and Travis, had moved from Boise, Idaho to Alaska in 1977. Shane attended school in Anchorage, graduating from West Anchorage High School. He wanted to work a year or two before going to college, and after a year and a half, he enrolled at his father’s and uncle’s alma mater, Boise State University, attending part-time and working so he didn’t have to take out any student loans. In the summer, Shane would return to Alaska to work in the family construction business. Although a small company, Alaska Building Structures, Inc. did mostly public works projects such as building teacher housing, armories, and U.S. Post Office facilities in remote locations in Alaska, affording Shane unique experiences of a lifetime, while earning good wages for his college tuition. In addition, these experiences were integral in helping Shane settle on the major of Construction Management. Shane became an avid skateboarder and skilled rock climber - and he absolutely loved camping.

Upon graduation from BSU with a B.S. in Construction Management, Shane returned to Alaska and was hired by the Bering Straits Regional Housing Authority as their Construction Manager where he worked for 5 years, developing, and managing construction of housing for Alaska Natives in remote villages. In early 2015, he decided to return to Boise where he had made many friends and where his paternal grandmother and uncle were also living. Over the next 9 years, he worked as a construction manager for Hansen-Rice, Perryman Construction Management, and K-2 Construction, Inc., handling many multi-million-dollar stick build and steel build projects.

Shane was a unique and amazing individual. He had a natural ease with people and a keen and intelligent wit. Shane was great with kids, and although he had none of his own, his nieces and nephews adored spending time with him.

Shane was much loved and has left a devastating void in his family as well as in the lives of his friends. We cherish the time we had with him and have many, many wonderful memories.
Shane is survived by his mom and dad, Ray and Carolyn; brothers, Lance and Travis and sister-in-law Katie; Uncle Robert and Aunt Melba; cousin, Raymond and eight nieces and nephews.
