Christopher Alan Morrison, 33, passed away at his home in Hardin on October 8, 2023. Chris is the son of Lynette Davisson Vandersloot and the late Alvin Morrison, IV. He is a member of the Ties The Bundle clan and a child of the Greasy Mouth. Chris received his education in Hardin, graduating from Hardin High School in 2009. Chris participated in AAU wrestling, baseball, and football. After graduating Chris was a wildland fire fighter, worked in the oil field as a rig hand, fused pipe in the natural gas field west of Hardin, and worked as a general laborer. He could weld and was very good at fixing small engines. Chris loved fishing, hunting, riding motorcycles, mechanicing, and hanging out with his many friends and family. He really enjoyed going out to Sarpy and cutting wood with his grandpa, aunt, and uncle. He was a fun loving, social guy that made friends everywhere he went. Chris didn’t have much in material objects, but he was very caring and loyal when it came to his family and friends. He would literally give you the shirt off his back if he thought you needed it. Chris was not one to stay in one place for very long. Although he didn’t own a car, he traveled many miles and would stop by his family and friends houses to check on them and visit. We have many fond memories of Chris, he was unique in so many ways.
