Andrew Morris Dozier went to be with our Lord on Sunday, October 28, 2018 in Tyler. He was preceded in death by his parents, Andrew and Leota Dozier; his beloved wife, Beatrice Dozier, two sisters, Sybil Dozier and Azalene Branch and numerous other treasured family members.

Morris was born April 4, 1916 in Winona, Texas. During his 102 years, he witnessed many changes on this earth, that he spoke of as his "temporary home". After retiring from a lifelong career at Firestone, he indulged in his many passions of coon hunting with his dogs, fishing, and tending to his vegetable garden.

Survivors include numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.

Graveside services will be held at 1:00 p.m. Thursday, November 1, 2018 at Harris Creek Cemetery in Smith County, with Pastor Jodie Brown officiating, under direction of Jackson's Burks Walker Tippit Funeral Home.

He is at home now, and we believe his final words to those left behind might be...

Love hard, drink from the water hose, wear overalls, play in the dirt, but most of all, love the Lord, your God with all thy heart, all your soul, and all your strength, and all your mind. To view online, please go to,
