Charles W. Morrison
Charles Wesley “Charlie” Morrison, 99, of Waycross, passed away Wednesday (Aug. 9, 2017) at the Baptist Village Nursing Home.
Born in Columbus, Ga., on Feb. 18, 1918, he lived in Smyrna for many years before moving to Blackshear in 2007 where he lived with his daughter, the late Charlotte Young, and her husband, Dr. Bill Young.
He would later move to Baptist Village where he lived until his passing.
He was a one-of-a-kind fella and was dearly loved by his family and his church family — Blackshear First Baptist Church. He was a World War II veteran having served in the U.S. Army and retired from Civil Service where he worked in the Mortgage Funding for Cities department.
After living 99 years on this earth there is a long list of things considered noteworthy regarding the life lived by Mr. Morrison; however, he would consider that boasting or just unimportant. His life lived for God would have been the important part. He hopes to see you all in Heaven one day, too!
He was the son of the late James Humphrey and Ruby Deramus Morrison. He was also preceded in death by his wife, Velma Corene Neighbors Morrison, and two daughters, Judy Annette Waterman and Charlotte Young.
Survivors include his daughter and son-in-law, Jeanne and Phillip Matthews, of Loganville; two sons-in-law, Dr. Bill Young, of Blackshear, and Chris Waterman, of Tennessee; nine grandchildren, Reid and Betsy Matthews, Charles and Julie Matthews, Karen Lankford, Patricia Martel, Pam and Tim Totherow, Tina and Jim Loy, Michelle and Scott Douglas, Suzanne and David Barber, and Sara and Dave Mothershead; 18 great-grandchildren; six great-great-grandchildren; and several nieces including a special niece, Jackie Villani; nephews, other relatives and countless friends he’s made over the last 99 years.
A memorial service was held Saturday morning at 10 o’clock at First Baptist Church in Blackshear.
Officiating were Dr. Bill Young and Dr. Don Waters.
Memorialization was by cremation.
