Thomas P. Morrison, 86, of Libertyville, formerly of Homewood, IL, passed away Oct. 12, 2023 peacefully at his home. Born September 5, 1937, the devoted son of Thomas Joseph and Margaret (nee Byrne) Morrison. Tom grew up on the southside of Chicago graduating from Holy Cross Grammar School (1951), Leo High School (1955) and DePaul University (1959). He served in the US Marine Corps Reserve. Tom had a long successful career in the insurance industry with Allstate Insurance and Pilot Catastrophe Services.
Tom is survived by his beloved wife Marcia (nee Linton) of 62 years; his loving children Eileen (Joseph) Santschi; T.J.

Tom loved golfing, Notre Dame football - especially tailgating - and traveling with his wife Marcia. He was an avid reader of murder mysteries and a lifelong White Sox fan. A son of Irish immigrants, Tom was proud of his heritage. Tom nurtured a deep faith in God and his dedication to the Catholic Church was exemplified through his active volunteerism.
