In Memoriam: Former Partner and Friend Bill Morrison Passes Away

We regret to inform you that our former partner and good friend Bill Morrison passed away on December 4, 2013 after a valiant battle with cancer. Bill joined Gardner Carton & Douglas on July 1, 1958 and was a larger than life contributor to the advancement of the firm until his retirement on December 31, 2000. Bill was a highly respected tax lawyer, corporate and securities lawyer, and a trusted advisor to his clients and his colleagues. Bill served as Vice Chairman of GCD’s Management Committee for nine years. More importantly, Bill set a wonderful example for all of us with his sharp intellect, unwavering integrity and homespun Midwestern humor.

A memorial will be held at 5:00 on Sunday, December 22, 2013, at K. A. M. Isaiah Israel, 1100 E. Hyde Park Boulevard, Chicago IL, 60615.
