Mr. Morrison was born on April 6, 1951, in Fayette County, the son of Leora C. (Morrison) Sluder.
Roger was an owner and operator of Morrison Excavating for many years. He was a fun-loving man who never met a stranger and usually addressed the girls with "Hey, Hun." He was always ready to tell a good joke, followed by a loud laugh. On most days, you could find Roger drinking coffee and grabbing a bite to eat at one of the local restaurants. Big Rog left a lasting impression on folks, either with his big grin, ornery personality or his favorite tattoo.
He is survived by his son, Jared Morrison (wife Natalie) of St. Elmo; grandchildren, Jozsef, Gracie, Lexie, Ella and Jack Morrison; and a great-grandchild, Decker Ritchey.
He was preceded in death by his mother; stepdad, Gene Sluder; son, Benji Morrison; and brother, Michael Sluder.
