Colin (Ky) Edward Morrison
Colin (Ky) Edward Morrison, 71, of Deer Lodge, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family on May 16, 2020. Ky is survived by his beloved wife Clara of 50 years, son Mark (Tiffany), daughter Steffanie (Chris), grandsons Dakotah, Colter, Whest, and Kaden, granddaughters Karsun, Lindsey, Brittney, Emma, Sophie Jo and Layla, and great-grandson Grant. He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, relatives and friends who each held a very special place in his heart. Colin was preceded in death by his mother and father, Anna and Albert Morrison, brothers Marvin, Dan, and Scotty, and sisters Joyce, Mickey, Barbara, Lois, and Flossy, and numerous other family members and friends who are too many to mention but meant the world to him.
Ky was born on Sept. 27, 1948 in Philipsburg. He was raised up on Swede Hill and had very fond memories of growing up there. He would often talk of having to walk to school through 6 ft. of snow, uphill both ways, and funny enough this story was true. From a very young boy, Ky was an avid outdoorsman who loved hunting, fishing, and mining for sapphires and gold, camping up at Stony Creek and spending time with his family. Ky graduated from Granite County High School and attended Montana State University for a short time before honorably serving in the Marine Corps and the Vietnam War. His experience in the service played an important role in his life. He was very proud to be a Marine, and he passed his love of the service onto his son Mark who proudly enlisted years later. Upon returning home from the service, Ky met the love of his life Clara (Johnson) Morrison. The two married in a beautiful ceremony surrounded by family and friends at St. Timothy’s Chapel at Georgetown Lake. Ky and Clara settled down in Deer Lodge to raise their family. He travelled the country for a time as a Pipe Fitter, and worked at the Anaconda Company and Railroad before beginning his longtime employment at Louisiana Pacific in Deer Lodge where he worked as a boiler operator.
Throughout his life, Ky enjoyed camping, boating, hunting, fishing, travelling, and spending time with his family, especially his children, grandkids, nieces and nephews, and most recently his adorable great-grandson. He was a bright light with a huge personality that was loved by everyone that he knew. He will be greatly missed.
Services will be announced at a later time due to concerns from COVID. In lieu of flowers, the family would prefer that you make a donation to your favorite local charity.
