Stewart County Farm Bureau President Richard Morrison, 85, died Sept. 3. Morrison served as county president from 1981 until his death.

After graduating from Stewart County High School, Morrison enlisted in the U.S. Army in the early 1950s and was stationed in Germany. He obtained agricultural degrees from Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College and the University of Georgia. He returned home to farm with his father, Leland, and later his son, Winston. The family grew row crops.
Morrison enjoyed restoring antique tractors in his retirement and was a founding member of SOWEGA Big Wheelers, often driving one of his antique tractors in local parades. He was also an active member of County Line Baptist Church where he served as a deacon, Sunday School teacher and song leader.

He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Carol Ann McKinnon Morrison, son Winston (Julie), daughter Cathy Rudowske (Mark), granddaughter Carrie Rudowske, brother David (Vivian) and many nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews.

Condolences may be sent to the family at 1715 Lynch Road, Lumpkin, Ga. 31815.
