DONALD MORRISON Obituary

Donald Ray Morrison 65, was born in Benton, AR to the late Eddie (Sugar) and Geraldine Morrison on January 18, 1958, and departed this earthly tabernacle on May 2, 2023. He accepted Christ at an early age and walked in his spiritual journey until his passing.
Donald was united in marriage to Patrisha Pettus and to this union was born one child.

He enlisted in the United States Army in 1978 serving as a telephone installer and lineman. His hobbies consisted of fishing, automotive repair and sales. At various times, you could see him tinkering on old cars restoring them to full function. He was a master brick mason, where he assisted in laying bricks in building in Little Rock. He would also take odd jobs, laying bricks for others.

Donald was a beautiful person inside and out. His smile was so stunning it would light up the whole room. You would often find him laughing and joking even in the mist of his storms. He cared deeply for the people around him. Many times he would serve in the Ralph Bunch Community helping the elderly with cutting lawns and helping with things around the house, He was kind and passionate. He made an impact on many lives. He will be forever missed. Until we meet again.                                                                                    

He was preceded in death by both parents; his son Christopher Brown; his brothers Herman Ashley, Herbert Morrison, and Joe Morrison; his sister Georgia Morrison-Heard. 
He is survived by his wife, Patrisha; sons Donald Ray Morrison, Jr., Kevin Morrison (Williams Port, PA), Dawin Morgan, Jr., Sammy Morgan, and Manny Morgan ; his siblings; sisters Patricia Ashley, Gloria Floyd (Willie), Deandra Atkins, Julia Morrison, Mary Jean Morrison, Eddie Louise Morrison, and Eunice Morrison; his brothers Larry Ashley , David Ashley, Eddie M.
