Default What is your perception of Gary Morse?

The Morse's are not seen often here in person, in fact almost NEVER ,so people have to guess what they are really, really like and what they are up to.

I think Gary Morse is in his 60's, a very good business man and a perfectionist. I think I would like him if I knew him personally.

Can't wait to see what you have to say.

I believe that Gary Morse is a brilliant business man and a very private person. The family has several large homes here along C.R. 466 and is more integrated into the community than you might think. I know some of the grandchildren hold rather minimal jobs in banks, restaurants, etc. They don't advertise who they are but their parents want to be sure they have a strong work ethic. Also, Gary's sisters are quite prominent heads of departments as well. It's a very wealthy but also very hard working family.

My apologies, Gracie. Most of my comments above were actually about MARK Morse. I do not withdraw my statement about Gary Morse being a brilliant business man. Certainly he has now turned most of the daily operations over to his children and is a reclusive man. The fact is he could walk around the streets of TV and 99.9% of the people wouldn't know who he was and maybe he does. I'm sure no one expects him to wear a name tag "HELLO, my name is GARY MORSE".

My impression is that he is a brilliant business man. You have to be a visionary to build a place like TV that has everything a person could want. The Morse family still works at making TV better.

Anyone that has built a place like TV is going to have some people that don't agree with certain things. There are other people who will say , "there is no place like the TV".

I was blown away by beauty of TV on my first visit and still smiiten with TV on my second visit. It is as close to heaven as I can imagine.

I for one, can't wait to move to paradise.

I often wonder if he might be walking around incognito and I have already said "hi" to him. I know if I had the wisdom and vision to build such a place, it would be fun to walk around and observe the results.

Default Morse family

How about giving most of the credit to the old man Harold Schwartz? He was the visionary who started this place. The family has done a great job of continuing his legacy.

Default Respect and admiration

Don't know much about Morse, but I admire and respect him and the family for building TV instead of something like this, below, that is only for people who have so much money they don't know what else to do with it.

The Villages is within reach of anyone who works for a living and lives within their means.

"Virgin Galactic's Sir Richard Branson, New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson and prospective astronauts gathered in the southern New Mexico desert Friday to celebrate the completion of the runway at the world's first purpose-built commercial spaceport.

Virgin Galactic is the anchor tenant of the taxpayer-funded spaceport and plans to use the facility to take tourists on what will first be short hops into space. . . .

Tickets for suborbital space rides aboard SpaceShipTwo cost $200,000. The 2-hour flights will include about five minutes of weightlessness. Some 380 customers have already made deposits totaling more than $50 million, Virgin Galactic officials said Friday.

Agree. But those that came after Harold certainly made TV even better by following a strict master planned community template. It is this template that lured me to TV.

ncr2482:

I meant to mention that fact in my post. It was Harold Schwartz vision but I was trying to say that Gary continued it by expanding it and continued to make it better.

I don't have the information at my fingertips but I remember reading somewhere, there was another partner with Harold Schwartz. I don't remember his name off the top of my head but he was bought out by Harold.

Sorry for the oversight.

Well, he had enough vision to hire his son. ( Who I think was an advertising executive)
