Larry was born in Cheyenne to Wade and Mildred (Lerwick) Morrison. He graduated from Cheyenne High School in 1960 where he was active in FFA and served as District President. Upon graduation he joined the US Navy serving on the USS Hector as an Electricians Mate. Larry attended Casper College and the University of Wyoming studying soil science. Larry was hired by Northwest Airlines in 1966 as a pilot. He retired from Northwest/Delta in 2002 as a 747 Captain. Larry purchased and began the 7X Angus Ranch in Washington State where he bred Registered Angus Cattle alongside his wife of 40 years, Carol (Nelson) and children: Jered, Kendra and Wayne. The 7X brand became internationally known for the genetics the cattle carried. In 1995 the Washington property was sold and the family and cattle relocated to Lingle, Wy. Larry was well liked by those who knew him. He referred to his love of cattle genetics as his “golf game”. Larry was slowed down shortly after his retirement by West Nile Virus that affected him until his death. Larry is survived by his wife Carol, daughter Kendra, sons Jered and Wayne (Kevie). Grandchildren Jordan and Jonah Morrison; Emily, Maggie, J.W. and Conor Morrison. Sisters Wanda (Scott) Young and Janet Darr. Numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.
