Born in Washington, D.C., Mr. Morrison was a son of the late William Farmer Morrison and the late Velma Estelle Huntley Morrison.
He retired from Wachovia Bank with 16 years of service. He was a past town council member in Morven, N.C., and a member of the ROMEOS at Harrison Church. He loved music and was a baseball fanatic for the Atlanta Braves and a lifelong UNC Tarheel basketball fan. Mike enjoyed keeping in touch with his family and friends through the stroke of his fingers.
Survivors include his wife of 22 years, Cathy McCallum Morrison; his stepchildren, Donna Russo (Rich) of Charlotte and Robert T. Darnell Jr. (Katy) of the Netherlands; his grandchildren, MacKenzie and Logan Martin, and Jesiah, Ethan and Eva Darnell; and his siblings, Richard Morrison (Craft) of Wadesboro, N.C., Linda Melton (Donnie) of Pageland, William Morrison (Hanne) of West Palm Beach, Fla., and Eleanor Millinig (Dave) of Palm Coast, Fla. Also surviving are his
nieces and nephews, who have always thought of Mike as much more than an uncle, but as a hero as well, Larry Melton (Susan), LeAnn Melton, Lora Wyatt (Mitch) and Will Morrison; and great-nieces and nephews, Slade, Hart, Trace, Ryn, Emerson, Owen and Cooper.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a great-niece, Huntley White.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in Mr. Morrison's name to Harrison United Methodist Church, 15008 Lancaster Hwy, Pineville, NC 28134 or to Hospice & Community Care, PO Box 993, Rock Hill, SC 29731.
