Red and I were buddies from the second we met 48 years ago. I must admit that I am the one who got him started on "Hully Gully". I too am retired from the Air Force and after all those active years my best top five military friend included Red. It was an honor and great pleasure being friends with Red. His smiles and laughter will be missed by many people. God Bless.

To Ann and family: We wish to express our sincerest condolances and heartfelt sympthany for Red .Our friendship was short term by comparrison
having started in the fall of 1992 at Camp creek hunting club and going untill beyond I have always known Red as a man of his word and to stand for what he believed in .I admired the way he treated everybody as his equal young and old alike, Red was fair in his dealings and never met a stranger I grew to respect his decisions althoudh we had our moments.I am proud to call Red Morrison my friend and shall always remember him and his wonderfully funny stories Blue skies and clear sailing my friend you will be sorely missed.
