Obituary

Whatever good things we build end up building us. Lenvel N. "Len" Morrison was a steadfast foundation of loyalty. He built his family with faith, his career with tenacity and defended our ideas of American freedoms with fidelity. Len was a fan of fond memories and simple life in those old time TV shows. He enjoyed spending his days with his wife, tending to his vegetable garden, and tooling around the Church. On our day of rest, Sunday September 15th, 2019 the good old days became fond memories. After 98 years, we were separated by death and connected by love. Len had been turned over from our time together to eternity at St. Mary's Medical Center in Langhorne, PA. Thanks and praise for the days... neath the sun, neath the stars, neath the sky, as I go, this we know God is nigh. Mr. Morrison was born in Huntington, WV where his formative years were shaped. He was the 7th of 9 children born to Milton & Cynthia (nee Cremeans) Morrison. There are times when we make history and there are times when history makes us. Len contributed to the manpower of our great nation as a Corporal & 1st Gunner in the U.S. Army during WWII when the 4th "Ivy" Infantry assaulted the northern coast of German-held France during the Normandy landings on "D-Day". He was a soft heart who never talked about his experiences there but held those memories in his tears. Following his honorable discharge, Len had entered a carpenter's apprenticeship with Local 255 (Formerly Local 1489) in Hammonton where he made a 40 year career until his retirement in 1987. Mr. Morrison married his "Honey" and took root in the Makucha family home in Burlington City to start their own family. Love is patient, love is kind and love never fails. Love leaves Len's wife of 74 years, Josephine "Jo" (Nee Makucha) Morrison to cherish his memory. Mr. Morrison is the loving father of Cynthia and her husband Jeffrey Haines and the late Michael J. Morrison. He is the proud "Poppy" of Ryan & his wife Kelly Haines, Eric Haines and his girlfriend Jess, and great grandfather of Jackson Haines who always made him smile. Len will always be "Unc" to his many nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews. Relatives and friends are invited to join the Morrison family on Tuesday morning October 1st to remember Len, celebrate valor and pay tribute to a generous, loving husband and father between 9:30 am and 10:30 am at Page Funeral Home 302 E Union St. Burlington.
