In 1971 Terry Morris opened his first Dealership, Morris Ford Mercury. The
dealership grew to be one of the best Ford dealerships in New York State, winning
many sales and customer service awards. In 1984 he opened his second Dealership
in Burnt Hills NY named Terry Chrysler. He later added the Jeep division to that
dealership.The same came true for Terry Chrysler Jeep, winning many sales and
customer service awards. In 1992 Terry Morris earned, with help from his staff,
a Time Magazine Quality Dealer Award honoring him for supporting his community
as well as being an exceptional dealer, noted for customer satisfaction.
Terry always believed in "bringing the family into the business". His son Charlie joined the dealership at
a young age, and then attended the National Auto
Dealers Association Dealer Academy in 1989,
graduating with many honors. Terri-Jo Kislowski, Terry's daughter also started in the business at a young age. In 1993 she also graduated from the NADA Dealer Academy. Since that time, she has held many positions with the Two dealerships.
Most Potential buyers who have studied auto ads have discovered the little girl who announces, "My dad Terry Morris is still number 1".
She is a familiar figure is promotions and she
is for real. The original Proclaim of Terry's
Reputation, at the age of six, was Terry's oldest
Daughter Maria. Terri-Jo also proclaimed it for
a while. With the birth of Terri-Jo's daughter Shelby,
Terry's first Grandchild, the Morris Family could
only do one thing; change the slogan to
"My grandpa, Terry Morris, is still number 1".
Now, with the addition of Shelby's brother Jack and Charlie's two daughters, Irena and Noella, it's time for another slogan, possibly "Our grandpa, Terry Morris, will always be number 1".
On April 19th, 2006, after a three-month hospital stay, Terry Morris passed away. This was a tremendous loss not just to Terry's family but also to the staff at both dealerships and the community, as well. He was loved and respected by many and will be missed for many years to come. His son, Charlie, has now taken on the task of running both dealerships. Due to Charlie's upbringing and training in the automobile business, he is handling the task like a trooper.
The Morris Family, which includes all the staff
of both stores, would like to thank you for
stopping by our website, and look forward to
you joining our Family of satisfied Customers.
