David (Bud) Morrison, Jr. of The Villages, FL passed away on April 13, 2022 with his loving wife, Lorene, by his side.

He was born in Niagara Falls, NY on November 20, 1956; Graduated in 1974 from Niagara Wheatfield High School and was a member of the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 463C working at LaFarge NA (formerly Niagara Stone) in Niagara Falls, NY for 34 years before retiring.

He is the son of the late David N. and Ann W. (Middleton) Morrison, and brother to the late Patrick Morrison.

Bud is survived by his wife, Lorene (Foley) Morrison, two children, Michelle (Erik) Krupa, and David (Erica) Morrison and he was “Poppie” to two grandchildren, Connor Krupa and Brianna Morrison. He is also survived by his sisters, Maryann (Kevin) Finnigan, and Jeannie (Jim Korba) Morrison, Aunt Jill (Middleton) Rose, and many cousins, nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.

Bud is described as “the nicest person on the planet“…”he is like a brother to me”… “he is one of the good ones”. He didn’t just make friends he made them like family for life. He was blessed to have his lifelong friend Mike (Patti) McArdle by his side in the end.

Bud wouldn’t want anybody to be sad when thinking of him, instead think of a sad bad dad joke and smile! We promise, it’ll make you smile.

Bud was under the care of Cornerstone Hospice Care. A very special thank you to all the angels of Cornerstone Hospice, The Villages, FL.

    David and Michelle I am saddened by the passing of your beloved Father. Buddy was compassionate man , kind and generous with a heart of gold . He especially was very caring of children and old people . We were friends since we got hired together in 1977 . I really cherished the times we worked together and hung out . He is now with his Heavenly Father resting in enteral peace .
