I had Mr. Morrison for Geography and AP US History at Rich South High School, and I attended a few years of grade school and played Little League Baseball with his son, Scott. I greatly enjoyed his classes and will always remember his large belt buckles and the prominent NRA sticker on his briefcase. He was an inspirational teacher.

Don was the greatest man I ever knew. He was a loving dedicated man. He loved his family and was dedicated to them. He will be greatly missed.
