William B. Morrissey

William Bede Morrissey ’89, 46, passed away suddenly on January 30, 2013 at the Raymond G. Murphy Veterans' Hospital in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Born on January 7, 1967, Bill attended Our Lady of the Assumption School and Aquinas High School before being awarded a full ROTC Scholarship to Santa Clara University in 1985. He graduated in 1989 with a degree in Political Science and a commission as a US Army officer. A decorated veteran of Desert Storm and Airborne Graduate, Bill was a Captain in the U.S. Army for 8 years which included assignments in Turkey & South Korea. He was a compassionate person who loved nature, was especially fond of dogs, and was always on the alert for opportunities to help others. Bill was preceded in death by his father, Jere Morrissey J.D. '56 and his cousin Thomas J. Morrissey. He is survived by his mother Patricia Morrissey, brother, John Morrissey; son, Robert Bede Morrissey and Robert's mother Marjorie Jorgensen. Also surviving him are his uncle, Brian (Janet) Morrissey '62, his cousins, Joan, Michael, Sean (Veronica) Morrissey and many other relatives and friends. A bright light has disappeared from us. We are the poorer for his absence.
