Dick Morrison

Dick N. Morrison

September 14, 1945 - February 7, 2021

Dick Nealy Morrison, age 75, of Melissa, Texas, went to be with his Heavenly Father on Sunday, February 7, 2021.  He was born on September 14, 1945, in Weatherford, Oklahoma, to Anna Mae (Frost) and Dick Cathey Morrison.  Dick proudly served his country in the United States Army.  Dick married the love of his life, Lola Angelie Mitchell, in Seminole, Texas, on May 29, 1970.  Together they had one daughter, Misty.

Dick earned his bachelor’s degree from College of the Southwest in Hobbs, New Mexico.  He worked hard to ensure his family was well taken care of and had a successful 35-year career in the oil and gas industry with Hess Oil Corporation.  Throughout his career, he had many colleagues whom he respected greatly and most of whom became life-long friends.

Known in his latter working and retirement years as Papa D, he was a proud grandfather and hardly ever missed a ball game or event where his grandkids played or cheered.  He filled his time with family, as family was his greatest joy and meant everything to him.  

Dick was a wonderful son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, and friend.  Always willing to listen or give advice, he taught us about how to live life with character and integrity.  Dick was the rock for his family and could fill a room with his robust laughter.  His sense of humor and presence will be irreplaceable.

Dick is survived by his loving wife of fifty years, Angie Morrison, of Melissa, Texas; his daughter, Misty (Bryan) Warrick of Celina, Texas; his grandchildren, Mekena and Will Warrick; his sister, Charlotte Ann (Jim) Helm of Wylie, Texas; his brother, Spencer (Brenda) Dunlap of Midland, Texas; his nephews, Mike Helm, Mark Helm, Scott Dunlap and Justin (Bunny) Mitchell; his nieces, Kelly (Shane) Smith, Traci (Clayton) Stewart, Lori Dunlap, and Amy (Matt) Daniel; as well as several great nieces/nephews, cousins, and a host of other loving family and friends.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Anna Dunlap and Dick Morrison.

A memorial service will be held at Turrentine-Jackson-Morrow Chapel, 8520 Main Street, Frisco Texas, on Monday, February 22, 2021, at 2:00 p.m., officiated by Reverend Fred Randles and tribute given by Mr. Dan Farris.

You were a beautiful example of friendship, you will be so very missed. Jill Morris, February 21, 2021 Papa D was an incredible example of a husband, father, and granddad. He had a way about him that made others around him feel valued and appreciated. He certainly lived his life with intention and was devoted to his family and sweet wife Angie "Granna". I will miss you Papa D. Stacia Butler, February 21, 2021 We've known Dick and Angie since 2008 and will truly miss him. He was a great loving family man. My highlight of walking the neighborhood was joking with Dick and Angie. I was jealous of his numerous yard of months. Keeping up with Dick at the gym was something I couldn't do. He was my number one friend in Melissa and I am comforted knowing that God has welcomed him in heaven RIP good buddy.
