MORRISON, John F., of Westwood, MA, lost his eight year battle to cancer on May 2, 2021 surrounded by his loving family. John's legacy is not only his family, but cancer research so that perhaps others may not have to suffer as he did. Upon his death, he donated tumors and tissues to cancer research. His wish was that others know this program exists and hopefully cancer remain not only treated, but obliterated.

He was beloved Papa to Sarah Hutchison, Jackson Davis, Austin Davis, and Carson Davis, who predeceased him. He was brother to William Morrison (Ann) of Westwood, Kathleen Wallace (David) of Manassas, VA, and Roderick Morrison, who predeceased him. He was brother in law to Sheila Morrison of Wells ME, and beloved uncle to Brian Morrison and James Morrison; Shawn, Brian, and Nathan Wallace, and Quentin Morrison.
