Morris Proctor Obituary, Death – I woke up much too early this morning and was surprised to see that my cousin Morris Proctor had succumbed to disease and gone away. He was a preacher and a devoted, knowledgeable follower of our Lord. However, due to his protracted role as Logos Bible Software’s official trainer, he was mostly recognized as the program’s indisputable “public face” by the broader public. His teaching style was always stimulating yet well-paced, as well as (most significantly and consistently) God-directed and student-oriented.
He was renowned for his knack for demystifying and clarifying the wide breadth and numerous features of the Logos software. As I write this, I can still hear him stopping often to make sure his students were paying attention. He would inquire, “Are you tracking with me?” and beam his trademark grin of support. I’ve been engaged in his online video classes since his MP Seminars company was founded, so a few years ago I had the good opportunity to attend one of his 3-day seminars at Apex Baptist Church, which is close to my home. He and I discovered we were linked during that meeting in Edgecombe County, North Carolina, owing to our shared heritage.
We stayed in touch throughout the years, and when I recently took another of his 3-day courses, I was automatically drawn back to his lectures. I usually use Logos to do the research necessary for the sermons I am presently writing, and sometimes I have had to contact Morris to find out how to accomplish something or where something is located in the application. He always reacted quickly, simply, and pleasantly, taking care of every minute aspect of the problem. He complimented me and urged me to keep him updated on the sermon’s progress in his most recent email. This is terrible news on so many levels. God bless you, cousin. After our happy reunion in the next life. I’m appreciative of everything.
