“He was a loving husband to my mum Marion for 57 years. He was a wonderful father to me and my brother Alan.
“He loved (Mr Morrison’s wife) Jen as a daughter and was a devoted grandfather to our girls.”
An army veteran and former police officer, John Morrison also worked as a local councillor and mayor on the Waverley Council for 16 years.
