Ross English Morrison, 57, of 425 S. Church Street, Spartanburg, SC, passed away Wednesday, December 28, 2022 at Spartanburg Regional Medical Center.
Ross was born in Spartanburg, SC on March 17, 1965, a son of Lynda Foster Morrison of Spartanburg, SC and the late Bob Morrison. In addition to his mother, Ross is survived by a brother, Ashley Hudson, of Spartanburg and a special niece, Addiley Hudson of Spartanburg.
Ross was a survivor of a multitude of mental and health struggles throughout his life. He cherished being able to live independently and thankfully was able to do that. He faced many challenges, always with courage and hope. As a child he was fascinated by airplanes and space ships and once was even able to witness the Concorde depart from Dulles Airport in DC headed for Europe in the early 1970’s.
He was an avid reader of books and poetry for many years, especially Stephen King novels. Having enjoyed a lifelong passion for music and movies, Ross was also a gifted poet and had many of his poems published. This was a great source of pride for him. He loved cats all his life and was often asking about “Lulu” who was his “cat sister” and lived with his mother.
Ross was a Christian and loved God. Many of his poems reflected his walk of faith and journey in this life. He spoke of heaven on many occasions and worried about the state of the world.
