He was a life member of the Fayerweather Yacht Club. “Moe” thought the world of the Bill Wilson Club. He was predeceased by the mother of his children: Eva B. Morrison; sisters, Flora Morrison and Margaret Sjodin and a brother, William D. Morrison. He is survived by his loving wife Susan Newcombe Lee; a daughter, Laura B. Morrison; two sons, Edward J.B. Morrison, Jr. and Dr. Briggs W. Morrison; a step-son, Douglas Lee; step-daughter, Rebecca Lee Levine; two sisters, Jean M. Sadlier and Catherine M.

  1. Jane worked with Ed at Coleytown Middle school. Later on we sailed many times together. Ed will be missed by all who knew him.

  2. Mr Morrison. I’m so sorry I never had a chance to thank you as an adult for putting up with me as a child at Coleytown. I was really difficult and learned from you that your discipline was intended to make me a better person. You were successful in this regard however you never knew the full effect you had on my childhood. Thank you and you did really care. I’m sorry I put you through the ringer…Rest In Peace as I will thank you when I see You on the other side. Chris Aguele

  3. Mr Morrison was my teacher at Burr Farms Elementary School in Westport 1964-1967 – for 4th grade Math and then Homeroom and Science in 6th grade. I learned a lot from him, and I am sorry for your loss.

  4. Sue, so sorry to hear of your loss. Moe was a good friend of our family and a great sailing companion out of Fayerweather Y.C. We will never forget that pipe and the way he sailed that boat single-handed around the harbor and L.I.S. I’m sure he and dad are sitting around up there in heaven talking boats and sailing and having a ball. Only wish they were both still here. Peace, friend…
