Richard “Roy” Morrison, 79, of Kittanning, passed away Saturday, October 29, 2022 at home. He was born August 2, 1943 in New Kensington to the late Art and Virginia (Bowser) Morrison.
Richard retired from Russell Standard Corp. He loved to fish and hunt, and the time spent afterwards butchering up all the family’s deer and making bologna while having a few beers. He enjoyed spending time with the family, especially the grand and great grand children. He loved going for rides and finding the best bargain at the store; even if it meant going to five different stores. He always had a smile on his face and will be greatly missed by many.
Richard is survived by his wife of 59 years Barbara (Mechling) Morrison of Kittanning; son Rick (Roma) Morrison of Cabot; daughter Amy (Jeff) Cox of Kittanning; grandchildren Dalton (Meagan) Cox of Kittanning, Alexa Cox of Kittanning, Jessica Morrison of Ohio, Sheila (Gabe) Swartzlander of West Sunbury; great grandchildren Weston and Letti Cox, Gianna Popovich; step grandchildren Roma, Tonya, Elizabeth, Josie, and Tavia; sisters Jerry (Ralph) Steiner of Chicora, Connie (Floyd) Olczak of Natrona Heights, and Pat (Paul) Olean of Freeport.
He was preceded in death by his parents; brother Albert Morrison and a infant brother Jimmy Morrison.
