Funeral services were held Wednesday morning for Herbert Morris, a longtime cosmetics industry executive.
Morris, who was 79, died of heart failure Sunday at his home in Warwick, N.Y.
He had retired in 1999, following a nearly 50-year career in the cosmetics business. Morris held a series of marketing and managerial positions at Revlon, Helena Rubinstein, L’Oréal and Trina, a cosmetics accessories firm where he served as president. After leaving Trina, Morris started his own marketing and managerial consulting firm, H. Morris & Partners.
He served in the Navy during World War II and graduated from the University of Alabama.
He is survived by his wife, Susan, and their two sons, Zachary and Joshua. By a previous marriage, Morris is also survived by four other children, Monte, Marcie, Westly and Wade.

In honor of Rihanna’s 30th birthday, we took a look back at an interview with the Barbados-native when she was just 18 years old. Here, she talked about her second album, “A Girl Like Me” in 2006. “I want to be me. I want people to fall in love with who Rihanna is, and that’s why I want the album to be about me so people can really find out who this girl Rihanna is, because they only know the ‘Pon de Replay’ girl.” Fast forward 12 years, and she’s released six more albums and has become a powerhouse in both the fashion and music industries. Happy birthday, @badgalriri 🎈(📷: Pavel Antonov) #wwdarchive
