Jimmy loved his home in the heart of Canyonlands, UT, where he enjoyed many adventures with his good friend, Enoch Foster.

He was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma in 2006 and bore this burden with remarkable dignity and strength through his passing. His loving wives were ever at his side with sweet care and tenderness. 

From his wife Anazella:  

“Our beloved husband and wonderful Papa Moroni Morrison – truly loved by all who knew him.  Singing praises to our Heavenly Father, he transformed our hearts with his loving and tender words that spoke the wisdom of God. Love always, your loving wife, Anazella.”

From his wife Melinda:  

“Besides being a devoted father, brother, husband and friend, Jimmy was a friend to all. He had a special way of drawing people in. He was dependable, loyal, trustworthy and a confidant.

“He had a sharp mind and a gift for problem solving. He believed that a job worth doing was worth doing right, which made him a valuable employee. Every task that he took on he did with precision and care. He had a wonderful sense of humor.”
