W. Morrison September 24, 1924 - January 7, 2015

W. Earl Morrison September 24, 1924 – January 7, 2015. A uniquely brilliant, innovative,  kind-hearted gentleman Earl Morrison slipped peacefully from life surrounded by loved  ones. Earl overcame a childhood of abject poverty. During WWII, at age seventeen, he  enlisted in the Navy. He was awarded the Bronze Star, Asiatic-Pacific medals, Victory  Medal and American Theater Medal. A creative, ilfe-long learner, he obtained graduate  and post graduate degrees. After 36 years, he retired from the University of Texas Health  Science Center Dental Branch in Houston where he was a professor. After his retirement,  he was appointed Professor Emeritus. He was an electrical engineer, scientist,  mathematician, physicist, inventor and author. His humble nature did not permit overt  recognition of his many accomplishments. He is survived by his loving wife, Ileene; son  James Wayne Morrison; daughters Marcia Richardson (David) and Sheri Glantz (Barry);  grandchildren; and great grandchildren; and sisters Florine Stroud, Alvalene Foster,  Merline Williams, and Frances Morrison. He was predeceased by his first wife Elizabeth  (Betty) Roberts; and son William Randolph Morrison (Susie), sisters Lucille and Helen; and  brothers James, Delma and Ray. He will be remembered for his dry wit, mischievous twinkle, love of nature and wildlife (especially his parrot, Tukitu), assistance to friends and  family and innate goodness. He will be sorely missed, but forever in our hearts.
