Morrison, Jerome Harold "Jerry" - Vacaville  
Jan. 22, 1961 - May 22, 2015 After a brave battle with cancer, Jerome "Jerry" Harold Morrison died on May 22, in Vacaville, at the age of 54. Jerry was born at home on Jan. 22, 1961 in Glassboro, New Jersey. He grew up in a large, loving family with six sisters and two brothers. Jerry joined the United States Air Force in 1980 after graduating from Pitman High School in Pitman, NJ. While in the service, he traveled to Texas, Illinois, New Jersey, Japan, Holland, and finally to California. After honorably serving his country for 20 years and keeping with his great sense of humor, Jerry chose to retire on April Fool's Day in 2000. He was awarded many awards and decorations for his faithful service. Upon retiring, Jerry decided to stay on the left coast and bought a home in Vacaville. Jerry married Heidi J. Quist on Aug. 31, 2006. Shortly after their marriage, Jerry started his second career with BNSF Railroad where he rose to the position of Engineer. The life of a railroad engineer quickly became Jerry's passion, second only to his love of the Dallas Cowboys. When diagnosed with lung cancer in October 2014, he remained dedicated in his work and in his will to fight his illness. He remained a brave, iron-willed man, even throughout his final months. A Memorial will be held on the left coast at McCune Garden Chapel, 212 Main St., Vacaville, CA 95688 on Thursday, May 28, at 1 p.m. Jerry requested to be cremated.
