As a couple, Bill and Pauline shared many evenings gliding across the floor as ballroom dance partners. He had a keen interest in history, including the arts and crafts movement and family genealogy. He was an avid Patriots and Red Sox fan. In addition to his wife, Mr. Morrison is survived by his daughters, Pat Morrison and her wife Maren Brown of Florence, Mass., Terre Morrison and her wife Karen Popovich of Essex Jct., Vt., and Holly Sparrow and her husband Jay of North Attleboro, Mass.
