Morrison Hawkins Mebane
October 7, 1931 - May 4, 2021
Morrison Hawkins Mebane, 89, went home May 4, 2021, after a short battle with cancer. He won that battle: he gets to celebrate the victory with Jesus – and his parents that he so wanted to meet! Funeral services will be held 10:00 a.m., Tuesday, May 11, at
First Baptist Church, 5th and Webster, Waco, Texas. Visitation will be held 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., Monday, May 10, at Wilkirson-Hatch-Bailey Funeral Home, 6101 Bosque Blvd, Waco.
Morris died the way he lived, full of energy and life, always caring about others before himself. Born in Bryan, Texas, he was a graduate of Stephen F Austin High School, Bryan, and of Texas A&M and UT - what a combo! He was an Alumni by Choice at Baylor. He
was a pharmacist for 46 years, first at Walgreens, Lake Air Mall; then he owned Medical & Surgical Pharmacy, Tri-Cities Pharmacy in Woodway and Morrison’s Gifts, also in Waco. He cared for thousands of prescription customers – and to the day he died, remembered
President of the Texas Pharmacy Association of Waco for many years, Morris also taught Pharmacology at MCC and was a Deacon at First Baptist Church. He and Lucy were avid fans of Baylor Bear basketball – especially the Lady Bears. He was immensely proud of
the fact that his namesake and great-uncle, Wade B. Morrison, was co-creator of Dr. Pepper! His extensive collection of tobacco memorabilia was exceeded only by his extensive collection of grandchildren – 21 to be exact.
The love of Morris’ life was first and foremost Lucy, his wife of 56 years, with whom he was reunited Tuesday morning; then his 15 grandkids, 6 ½ great grandkids, his kids – John Mebane, Susan George and Sally Dickenson, his sister-in-law, Bonnie Mebane, his
hairy, four-legged sidekick Rascal, and his friends –way too many to mention, but you know who you are!
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to The Alzheimer’s Association, 710 N 64th Waco TX 76710, in honor of Lucy.
