    So sorry to hear about Bill. Always had great conversations talking about old times. He loved to sing. He taught my grandson how to make moccasin shoes. He was a dear friend to me and my brother Jack. He was a good guy and will be missed.

    I sure did respect Bill Morrison! And he was an American Veteran of our Air Force. A true hero to so many in so many ways!

    Bub was there for every happy and sad event since I was a shy, stupid, painfully insecure young girl of 16 years old. Through all the tough times in my life his patience and calm words would make me see that the world wasn’t going to end after all. He taught me how to drive a stick-shift, play poker and dominoes, and make sausage gravy.
    He was proud of his service to our country. He loved his wife Peggy and always wanted to be wherever she was. He loved his mother, his brothers, and his sister. Bub never forgot his friends and neighbors. He enjoyed all the children and youth at the boxing club. Dogs and cats loved him.
    I will never forget all of the good times and funny things that happened over the years. I will miss him very much and he will stay in my heart forever.
