Obituary for Jack K. "Captain Jack" Morrison

Mr. Jack Morrison, of Regis Road in Saukville, passed away peacefully at his residence Wednesday, February 8, 2017. He was 73 years old. Jack was born in Buffalo, NY on November 10, 1943, son of John and Laura Woodward Morrison. Following his schooling, Jack enlisted in the US Coast Guard. Mr. Morrison was united in marriage with Margaret Downs in 1967 while stationed in Michigan. The couple moved to Saukville in 1980 with their two children. Jack retired from the Coast Guard in 1985 after achieving the rank of Master Chief Petty Officer, and then became involved with the Ozaukee County Water Safety Patrol. He was a very active member for 25 years. Mr. Morrison worked as the Emergency Management Director for the Village of Saukville, a position he held for the last 10 years. He was a member of the Saukville American Legion Landt-Thiel Post 470 and Living Hope Lutheran Church. Jack enjoyed woodworking- frequently making yard projects for family and friends- and model ship building. Recently, he liked taking long car trips and had been planning a driving trip to Alaska. He was a familiar face at the local YMCA, often competing with others in friendly competitions. He was passionate about serving his community; whether as a Coast Guardsman, Captain Jack of the rescue boat, or working with the Village of Saukville. Above all, Jack treasured his granddaughters, and the experience of being a grandpa.
Mr. Morrison is survived by his children, Jack “Ken” Morrison II of Saukville, Dawn (Nick Josefik) Morrison of St. Joseph, IL, granddaughters Noel and Eden Josefik, also of St. Joseph, IL, and brothers Thomas (Bernie) Morrison of Washington Court House, OH, James (Carol) Morrison of Senica, SC, Daniel (Colleen) Morrison of Dayton, TN and David (Pam) Morrison of Akron, NY. He is further survived by nieces, nephews, other family and many friends. Jack is preceded in death by his parents.
Funeral Services will be held at 5PM on Saturday, February 11th, at the Eernisse Funeral Home, 1600 W. Grand Ave., Port Washington, followed by military honors. Pastor Kimberly Jordan will preside. The family will receive visitors at the Funeral Home on Saturday from 3-5PM.
