Family-Placed Death Notice

Lyle Richard Morrison, 69, of Cumming, GA, died Wednesday, July 4, 2007 at his residence. He was a native of Oglesby, IL. He is survived by his wife, Sandy Morrison of Cumming, GA; daughter, Robin Morrison of Brooks, GA; son and daughter-in-law, Rick and Susan Morrison of Suwanee, GA; son, Lee Morrison of Cumming, GA; brothers and sisters-in-law, Doug and JoAnn Morrison of Cumming, GA, Dennis and Fran Morrison of Oglesby, IL, Robert and Linda Morrison of Washington, IL; sister-in-law, Jackie Weissman of Princeton, IL; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Pete and Kathy Bergagna of Seatonville, IL; grandchildren, Christopher, Lauren, David, Brittani, Sean, and Isabella Morrison. Lyle began his business career with Jostens, later MTM Recognition in 1967. He was a top performing salesman with the company for 40 years and was still actively assisting his clients on a daily basis. Many of his customers had been with him for almost all of that time. Over the years the business evolved into a family affair which included both his wife and brother Doug, all of his children, and recent years even his grandchildren. Lyle also enjoyed spending time with family away from the office for weekend dinners, special occasions and annual family reunion trips to visit brothers, cousins, and other extended family members. Although, the study of sales and the motivation and recognition business was his passion, he also enjoyed reading and working outdoors. In all of Lyle's endeavors over the years his greatest joy was found in the time spent with people. He never met a stranger and loved to talk to everyone that crossed his path. He loved all the people he worked with and served through his business and always made time for them. He wrote letters rather than email and visited in person rather than phoning. He never thought of them as clients, but always thought of them as friends. Whether he was entertaining the family with his singing and dancing or at work conducting a business meeting, he always did it his way. A Funeral Mass will be held Monday, July 9, 2007 at 10:00am at St. Brendan Catholic Church, Cumming, GA with the Father Rafael Carballo officiating. Interment will follow the service at Sawnee View Memorial Gardens, Cumming, GA. The family will receive friends on Sunday, July 8, 2007 from 6:00-9:00pm at McDonald and Son Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made in memory of Mr. Morrison to St. Brendan Catholic Church, 4633 Shiloh Rd. Cumming, GA 30040.
