Raymond H. Morrison, Sr., 78, of Bridgeton passed away peacefully at home on Thursday, April 28, 2022 under the care of family and Angelic Hospice.
Ray was born in Bridgeton to the late Harry and Elaine Peterson Morrison. After his graduation from Bridgeton High School with the Class of 1961, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps where he served two tours of duty in Vietnam. After his honorable discharge from the military, Ray joined the City of Bridgeton Police Department and served as a Police Officer for nearly 20 years.
He loved sports and was a huge N.Y. Yankees fan and a big Pittsburgh Steelers fan. He enjoyed doing yard work, going out to dinner and his fun trips to the casinos. But most of all he enjoyed playing with his grandson, Parker.
Ray is survived by his wife of 41 years, Judy Mazzio Morrison; his son, R.J. Morrison and his grandson, Parker. He also has his sisters, Pat Rogers of Bridgeton and Donna Caldwell of Georgia and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his sister, Nancy Karol of North Carolina.
