He was born July 20, 1952 in Muscatine, IA, a son of Raymond Cecil and Helen M. Felker Morrison.

On April 22, 1995, he was united in marriage to Carol Daniels.

Survivors include his wife, Carol, of Kahoka; three sons: Michael (Vickie) Brown of Michigan, Kyle Morrison of Michigan, Keane Morrison and fiancé, Kimberly Jenkins, of Kahoka; a step-son, Andy McVeigh of Kahoka; also, Kyle (Lindsey) Swindler of Kahoka whom he considered like a son; three daughters: Cristina Webber of Kirksville, MO, Myra Young Griffin of Kahoka, and Jessica Morrison of Kahoka; a step-daughter, Dana Summers of Luray; nine grandchildren: Ashley, C.J., Michael and Jarrod Brown, Tessa Young, Trenton and Hailee Summers, Kale Webber and Nick Boon; a great-grandchild, Grace Clark; four brothers: Charles (Barbara) Morrison of Dixon, IL, Larry (Sharon) Morrison of Peaksville, MO, Mike (Diane) Morrison of Kahoka, and Ronnie Morrison of Kahoka; four sisters: Linda (Dan) Riley of Jadwin, MO, Sandy Darnell of Stratford, MO, Deborah (Mark) Brammer of Wayland, and Patricia LaMaster of Kahoka; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law: John Daniels of Tacoma, WA, Jim (Carole) Daniels of Keokuk, Roger (Francine) Daniels of Kahoka, Harold (Karen) Daniels of Keokuk, and Terry (Patty) Daniels of Keokuk, and Frances (Dean) Jackson of Burlington; as well as nieces, nephews, cousins and other relatives.

For most of his adult life, Bob was a construction worker and the past five years had worked for Hoppe and Sons Construction of Hamilton, IL. He loved carpentry work and loved to build things. He was also mechanically inclined and enjoyed tinkering, tearing things apart to see how they worked, and putting them back together only to make them even better. He loved his Mountain Dew and ice cream and had to have a milk shake every night. He also loved every Ford Ranger he had ever owned. He was a kid at heart which made his grandkids enjoy being with him as much as he enjoyed being with them.

Memorial services will be held Saturday, July 25, 2009 at 2 p.m. at Wilson Funeral Home in Kahoka with Pastor Shawn McAfee officiating.

Friends may register after 10 a.m. Saturday at Wilson Funeral Home until time of services.
