Gerald Gene Morrison was born on 9 July 1935 in Fairport, Monroe, New York to Leland Ray Morrison and Violet Marion Pung.[1]

He and his siblings were raised at 28 Schanck Ave in Rochester by their maternal grandparents, German-Americans Joseph Albert Pung and Margaret E (Kroeckel) Pung, from when he was 3 until he reached adulthood.[2][3][4]

He originally attended Edison Technical High School in Rochester before being sent by his grandparents to George Jr. Republic School in Freeville, New York, where he studied an agricultural course and was elected class president.[5][6] He graduated in 1953.[4]

Gerald married Celia Florence Marvel of Alfred Station on 25 August 1956 in Rochester, New York, where they had two children before moving the family to Bristol, Ontario, New York and had three more children in nearby Canandaigua.[7][4] He worked primarily as an auto mechanic. He also bred beagle puppies under the business name "Jerimor Bristol Beagles," volunteered for the Bristol Fire Department, and enjoyed attending rodeos.[8][9][4]

Gerald and Celia divorced in June 1977 and he ended up in Florida around 1980, where many of his paternal cousins had moved. He married Janet Young on 14 June 1980 in St. Petersburg, Pinellas, Florida.[10] They lived in St. Petersburg until around 1986/1987, when they moved to Taylor County.[11]

Gerald passed away on 23 June 1993 in Perry, Taylor, Florida after suffering a heart attack, and was cremated.[12][13][14]
