Gary Morrisette, 68, a resident of Oswego, passed away on April 5, 2017 at

Crouse Hospital in Syracuse after a long illness.

Born in Ilion, N.Y., he was the son of the late Albert and Evelyn (Adams)

Morrisette. He was a graduate of Ilion High School and received his

Bachelor's degree in Industrial Arts from the State University at Oswego.

He taught Technology at Mexico High School and later was employed with

Niagara Mohawk and Centro.

Gary was a humble man and a person of integrity. He saw the good in

everyone and taught his family so much about living and loving.

He dearly loved his family and took so much joy in caring for them. His

granddaughters were his greatest joy. Gary cared deeply for all his animal

friends, especially his cats Alf and Koby. He loved all kinds of music,

(especially country), reading, woodworking, computers, watching hockey,

and was always interested in current events. Gary also loved nature and it

was always a special day when the blue heron, “the fisherman,” returned in

the spring.

On Aug. 11, 1973, Gary married the former Dianne Thompson, and together

they shared 43 years of love and devotion to each other. He is also survived

by two children, Julie (Robert) Johnson of Fulton, Michael Morrisette of

Clifton Springs, a sister, Nancy (Albert) Young of Mohawk and four

granddaughters, Lori, Gabriella, Chloe and Naomi, “Popa’s"  four bright stars.

Friends may call at the Dowdle Funeral Home on Tuesday April 18 from 4:00-7:00 with a memorial service to follow the hours.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Oswego County Humane Society, 265 West First Street, Oswego N.Y. 13126 or the Golisano Children's Hospital, One Children's Circle, Syracuse N.Y 13210
