A Tribute to
18TH October 1952 to 21st April 2019
It is with sad hearts today, that we inform you of the peaceful passing of Don Morrisson, in the Wesley Hospital Brisbane at 6.40am on Easter Sunday.
Our deepest and heartfelt sympathy go out to Dons wife Anna, his son Jimmie, daughter Katie, son in-law Chris and his much-loved grandchildren Sofia and Oliver.
Don was an integral and Iconic member of our Music Industry and he will be deeply missed by all that knew and loved him. He always brought a smile to the face of everyone who came across him.
Don first started work as a Queensland Area Manager with Electric Factory nearly 31 years ago and remained in that role with them for 17 years. Don moved and continued this role with National Music for 4.5 years before ending his career at Musical Merchandisers, after 9 years, at the end of February this year. Don would often say he couldn’t believe he started his career selling Washburn guitars and ended it selling Washburn guitars.
It has been a wonderful journey for Don in the industry, he was known by so many people, he loved the retailers he would visit, and built so many long lasting and treasured friendships. Don loved a good story, a chat and many coffees.
Don was the recipient of many awards including being honoured as a Great Australian at The Great Australian Gala Dinner in Melbourne in 2016.
As many of you will be aware Don was also a wonderful author who wrote and published several books. Dons life was a wonderful book, in its self, cramming so much into his 66 years.
Don toured Vietnam during the War as a performer (Drummer) in bands and continued to play professionally up until a couple of years ago. He loved drumming and performing and made so many lifelong friends doing what he loved.
You’ve been an inspiration to so many. You will never be forgotten.
