Obituary for Donald Morrison
Don was born in Atlanta, but Oklahoma City was his home for 66 years. He graduated from Putnam City in 1961 where he excelled in football and attended OU. He was a Sooner and Dallas Cowboy fan. He worked for Century Distributing (part of OESCO) where he enjoyed a sales career and many wonderful trips. At 62 he retired from Ecolab where he had a second career and made many good friends.

Surviving him are his greatest loves, his wife, Mary Ann; daughter Amie Baxter; granddaughters Lily and Zoey; and son-in-law Brad. He and Mary Ann moved to Spokane in 2008 to be near their family where they enjoyed watching their beautiful granddaughters, going to their sports events and school activities. He is also survived by a special aunt, Carol Doherty and numerous cousins. Preceding him in death were his mother, Ethel Morrison; brothers William Morrison and Richard Rappa; and sister Susan Reiswig.

Some of his fondest memories in OKC include neighborhood friends and parties on Sherwood Lane where he watched Amie and her circle of friends grow up, the Nichols Hills 4th of July parade, and the best party with dear friends Tom & Judy Knott after the parade. He was great at picking out gifts for the wives at the Valentine dinners with the Knott's, Napier's, Mideke's, Joyce's and Jones'es.

After moving to Spokane, he made new friends and memories that he loved. The Dutch oven cook out at Judd & Melissa's, parties a Hauser Lake with the Plonka's, Blakemore's and Russell, the St. Joe River with the Reed's and their family and friends on Labor Day, Christmas dinner at Mitcham's Barn, Priest River on July 4 with the Axel's, Paula & Roger and their family. So many friends of Amie and Brad's embraced him with love and respect. Mowing the grass at the Baxter's, garage sales and senior day at the Thrift stores, collecting little oil cans, walking sticks and Tiffany lamps (the knock offs) made him happy.

Trips to see his dearest friend Tom in Phoenix where they went to auctions and the Barrett Jackson car show were definitely another of his favorite memories.

He was well loved and will be missed so very much.
