Obituary for Michael Reese Morrison

Michael Reese Morrison, 47, of Newalla, died February 13, 2018. He was born July 17, 1970 to Gerald and Sue Morrison in Norman Oklahoma. Reese met his wife Shelley in the summer of 1988 and they were married on December 6, 1991.

Reese became a firefighter on July 11, 1996 with the Midwest City Fire Department. On January 3, 2002 he was promoted to the rank of Apparatus Operator.

When Reese was away from the fire department he was always spending his time with his wife and children. He loved watching Shuli play soccer and Shea play baseball. He also enjoyed fishing and being outdoors.

Reese not only made his family, but also his entire fire family his life. He was a great mentor and leader to those who had the honor to work by his side. He would have done anything for them.
