Dear Nina & family: I was a classmate of Morrie, and I am sorry for your loss. He was always kind and funny! I remember our Senior play, our Latin dinner, and Senior trip. Is leadership as class President made our four years in High School an interesting and fun time. Please pass on to Judy and the rest of the family my condolences.

High School memories flood my mind. It was Morrie Binder, president of the class of 1958, whose leadership included a professional side and astute decision-making abilities. Then there was the funny side of Morrie that drew everyone to him, making him a leader in all the hilarious and memorable activities that took place at Waterloo High School. If anything funny happened, one could count on Morrie's being the center and instigator of the event. At the same time, he could convincingly declare his innocence, regardless of his obvious involvement. It simply created endearment from and among his classmates.
He took the leading role in the senior play, "Professor, How Could You". More wonderful memories.
He will long be remembered as a caring, devoted friend to many. Thank you, Morrie.
Condolences to the family. He will be missed.
