September 22, 1960 - March 20, 2020
Donald Kay Morrison passed away suddenly on March 20,2020 at his home in Mesquite, NV from a heart attack at the age of 59. Don was born on September 22, 1960 to Flo Marie Easterbrook and Kay Donald Morrison. Don was finally in a good place and was trying to get healthy so it comes as a shock to all his family and loved ones. He leaves a hole that can never be filled and will always be deeply missed. Donald was known by many different names, Don, Donny, Dmo, Dad, and Papa. Everyone who met Don shares a special bond with him because of his love for making people happy. It was hard to be in a room with Don and not share a laugh. He always had a way to get anyone to believe what he was saying even if it was an exaggeration of the truth. Don’s goal in life was to always help others, it didn’t matter how well he knew you, if you needed anything he would always find a way to help. Don never really called one single place home, he loved to travel and spent time all over Utah and Nevada. Mesquite was one of his favorite places to stay and play; he spent hours and hours there with his 2 best friends Cameron Noel and Roger Williams, so it seems only fitting that is where he spent his last days. Don was not married at the time of his death but he did share his life with a few special women. He was briefly married to his high school sweetheart Cindy Lue Heugly. He was then Married to Sonja Behrendsen for 3 year but they were together for 10 years. Sonja and Don had Alisha and Justin together. He was then married to Deb Butler for 15 years. During their marriage they raised their kids together and Don became extremely close to her children Angie and Brett Boshard. Don, Justin, and Brett did so much together from golfing, fishing, and going to Utah Utes games. Although their marriage ended he always loved and cared about Angie and Brett. The last 11 years of his life he spent with Cindy Luft and her son Ty. Once again he formed a special bond with her son Ty. They loved going to Utah Ute football games, watching Marvel movies, and betting on sports events on TV. Don loved Ty very much and Ty helped make his last years full of joy. For most of his life, his family was the focus of everything he did. He always wanted to give his mom a better life. At a young age he started working and would help her out any way he could. Once his children were born they became his focus and he never stopped trying to give them everything he never had as a kid. Alisha was Don’s daddies girl most of his life. There wasn’t anything he wouldn’t do for her. From shopping trips, to vacations, or even just taking her to the nail salon. He would even sit with her and get a pedicure himself. They shared the sweetest bond, Alisha’s best memories with her dad are of just sitting outside watching the sunset set and talking about anything and everything until the stars came out. He always had a way to make any problem she was having seem like no big deal at all. Don was not very happy when Alisha got married but he finally came around and loved her husband Mike like a son. They didn’t always see eye to eye but they both loved each other very much. Justin was Don’s boy to a T. They always shared a love for sports, from a very young age Don always had a ball or golf club in Justin’s hand. Later on Justin became an amazing golfer. Justin and Don would go on to play in many golf tournaments together. They also shared a love for football, you would always find them in front of the TV for every Rams and Utah Utes games. They also loved to tease all the BYU fans in the family and the ones who came into the family business. The bond they shared over the Utes will continue on even though he is gone. Don adored his first grandchildren, Kylie and Gracie. He would spoil them rotten almost everyday for years. They always knew Papa would buy them that chocolate donut. Unfortunately Don only met Jaxson and Jensen a few times when they were very young and he never had the chance to meet Adalynn and Eliott. We hope they all know that he loved them in his own kind of way. Don had many close relationships to people but there was one friend that stood by him almost all his life, Shawn Shanley. Don and Shawn were known for causing trouble together and they sure knew how to have a good time. There wasn’t anything they wouldn’t do for each other and we want to thank Shawn for always trying to help Don anyway he could. Don is survived by his Mom Flo Morrison, his children Alisha(Mike) and Justin(Brianna), his 6 grandchildren Kylie, Gracie, Jaxson, Jensen, Adalynn, and Eliott, his partner Cindy and her son Ty, his brothers and sister Dave, Shauna(Dann), and Kent, many nieces and nephews, and Aunts. Don is preceded in death by his father Kay Donald Morrison, his sister in law Darlene Morrison, his favorite Uncle Jackie Morrison, both sets of his grandparents, and several grand babies who were too perfect to be born to this earth. There will be a viewing on Friday March 27, 2020 from 1:30 to 3:30 at Serenity Funeral Home 12278 S Lone Peak Parkway # 103. We will also have a burial ceremony and a celebration of life at a later date.
