The family later moved to San Angelo, TX where Dick's father served at Goodfellow AFB and Eleanor became owner of children's clothing store. Dick enjoyed being a member of the Boy Scouts and Key Club while in San Angelo. After graduating from Central High School, he attended San Angelo College and later joined the Army.

During retirement, Dick was very active in the First Legislative Democratic party and received the Chairs Award in 2015. He had a natural curiosity about many topics, was an avid reader and gourmet cook. He was very handy around the house, could fix anything and built beautiful raised flower beds for the home in Bothell.

He was preceded in death by his parents, H. K. and Eleanor Morrison. He is survived by his wife, Barbara; son, Michael; daughter, Kelly; sisters, Nancy Carefoot and Susan Morrison; Uncle Louis Morrison, many cousins and countless friends.
