(Anderson) Morrison.  He is survived by his daughter, Tammy J. Blum, and her husband Jan, of Westwood; his five grandchildren, Matthew, Zachary, Marisa, Michaela, and Hannah Blum; his sister, Priscilla R. Morrison of Needham; and his aunt, Jeanne Morrison of Jamiaca Plain.  Danny was predeceased by his three brothers, James Burton Morrison, John Gerrish Morrison, and David Norman Morrison.  He is further survived by their wives, Rita (Mrs. James) of Norwood, Gail (Mrs. John) of Falmouth, and Susan (Mrs. David) of Ocean Park, Maine; his nephews, Jonathan Morrison, and his wife Christine, and Peter Morrison, and his wife Liz; his nieces, Robin (Morrison) Marsh, Sara (Morrison) Graves, Amy Rivelli, and Jennifer Rivelli; his sisters-in-law, Gail Sellers, and Trudy Stefansson, and her husband Hilmar; and his brother-in-law Jayson Sellers, and his wife Sarah.

    I had the privilege and honor to know Danny for over twenty (20) years. He is a solid citizen and moves on to life in heaven. Rest assured he is going there first class as he should. He was a caring, direct, common sense type of guy who truly saw the world as a big picture.

    My condolences to Kristin and to Danny’s family members during this difficult time. The world has indeed lost a stellar gentleman.

    May Danny rest in peace.

    Danny, oh Danny. We went WAY back, first grade I think, Pond Plain School, Oak Street with Mark and Smitty around the corner from you, and then onto High School. The cold up there finally got to me enough that I moved to south west Florida, so I hadn’t seen you in several years – my loss. Sad to see another great guy pass into the mists of time.

    To Kristen and the rest of their extended family, please know Danny was one of those people who you only had good recollections about.

    One of the people I always think of when the name “Westwood” comes to mind is Danny. Always a solid, dependable person, he represented the high school class of ’62 with honor and great memories.
    Condolences to all his family and his many friends. He will always be in my mind as one of the best, and I am certain you too will remember him that way.
