October 13, 1998 ~ October 2, 2018 (age 19)

Born October 13, 1998, he was the son of the late Hollis Olive Morrison III and Anita Darnell Morrison who survives. The passing of his father on June 28 of this year and his grandmother, Tammy Calhoun, had impacted him deeply, his grandmother was his great inspiration, and encouraged him to be the great man he was. These events had a significant impact on his life. 

Hollis was one of the most brilliant and talented people you would ever come across. He had a strong love and passion for basketball and his education. He graduated from River Valley High School with a 4.0 G.P.A. and he was awarded the Horatio Alger Scholarship which gave him a full ride to Ohio Wesleyan University, in Delaware, Ohio. His freshman year at Ohio Wesleyan he made the deans list with a 3.6 G.P.A. 

He is survived by his grandfather, Kenneth Calhoun who took great care of him and his brothers, Tru and Myles Morrison, after their grandmother’s passing. Hollis and his grandfather were very close and had a great bond, he impacted Hollis’ life in various ways and was loved greatly. Hollis is also survived by his best friend Scott Hughes, they have been the closest of friends, practically brothers since the first day of first grade, and made it into the same private university together and lived everyday together, they were inseparable. His oldest brother Tru was one of his biggest influences. He loved the same artist, sports, and had shown his talents that he has learned from him. His younger brother was the one he strived to be the biggest influence for. He got his little brother Myles into basketball and pushed him everyday to do his best. Myles was proud to call him his best friend and ultimately his big brother. 

Hollis was the humblest being and very outgoing, anyone that crossed his path saw Hollis with the biggest smile on his face. Hollis could make anyone laugh and was the funniest person you ever came across and was an influence on many people’s lives. Hollis will be deeply missed by everyone who had entered his life.
