Jack Morrison

April 25, 1948 – February 16, 2016

Jack Morrison lived a very full life surrounded by family and friends. He was born and raised in the stomping grounds of the Patriots, Red Sox, Celtics, and Bruins. During his formative years in Belmont, Massachusetts, Jack found his love for Corvettes, learned to ride a motorcycle, rock out on the drums, and be a leather jacket bad boy. He graduated from Belmont High School and moved to Boston, where he attended The University of Massachusetts to study accounting. However, adventure called and brought him to the sunsets and surf of Los Angeles, California. Jack eventually longed for his east coast home and moved back to Boston where he met the love of his life, Liz. Jack and Liz united in the commonwealth of Boston sharing rock concerts, open roofed seafood dives, and padded VW bus rides. After falling madly in love (so in love they had two weddings), the bonded couple hit the open road to see the United States. On their travels they found a small town in the Sierra Nevadas called Lake Tahoe. They spent a winter at Squaw Valley learning the local ways and growing ever more infatuated with this beautiful town. Enamored of their first Tahoe winter, Jack and Liz decided to stay for the summer and eventually (after a flip of a coin) the vagabonds settled down. They had finally found their home in the jewel of the Sierra. The Morrisons began their life in the Tahoe community as a couple connected with everlasting love and friendship, and overtime as a four pillar family when they became the proud parents of Daniel and McKenzie. Together they built a strong family cemented with love, character, and trust. Jack lived a life of honor and integrity. He was a lover, father, friend, and man of immense character. He loved the sunsets, crash of the waves, sports, and the stars of the heavenly sky, but most of all he loved his family and friends. Jack will be greatly missed. A Celebration of Life will be held at 2pm Sunday, February 28 at the Tahoe Yacht Club.
