Warrior Departed

Dateline: 2/23/2019

Lieutenant Colonel John Morrison US Army (Retired),


departed on his final deployment.  He was a valued member of the Palm Beach-Martin County chapter who held nearly every position in the chapter, including President for three years, then did several of the jobs again.  Simultaneously, he went on to serve as the President of the Florida Council of MOAA.


John's son Lemuel asked me to pass on the following:


In the early morning Friday, February 22nd 2019, LTC John L Morrison (Ret) succumbed to his long battle with cancer in Hamden, CT.  He passed quietly, comfortably, in peace and with the love of his family & caregivers.  He is survived by his two children, five grandchildren, a great-grandchild, his brother, two sisters and the countless hearts he touched in his life.


A memorial service has been tentatively planned for March 11th in Madison, CT.   Everyone he touched in life are welcome to join the family in a celebration of his life.  Details will be sent once the venue has been confirmed.


In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to an organization that mattered most to him in the latter part of his life.
