Richard L. “Dick” Morrison
Richard L. “Dick” Morrison, 73, of Jamestown, passed away unexpectedly Tuesday evening, April 9, 2019.
He was the husband of Ann Pantall Morrison, whom he married Feb. 14, 1986.
A lifelong area resident, Dick was born Oct. 14, 1945, in Jamestown, a son of the late Ernest and Norma Carlson Morrison, and was a 1963 graduate of Southwestern Central School.
For 43 years, he was employed by SKF in Jamestown.
He had been a member of Busti Federated Church, the Eagles, Busti Men’s Association and the Sugar Grove AMVETS 50.
Dick enjoyed hunting, NASCAR races, his nightly Wii bowling matches, as well as both telling and hearing jokes. He also spent many hours in his pride and joy, his tidy garage.
Dick was always there for everybody. There wasn’t a thing he wouldn’t do for the people he loved.
