MORRISETTE, TSGT. RICHARD  
TSGT. RICHARD MORRISETTE U.S. Air Force, Retired Richard Henri Morrisette, age 68, passed away March 17, 2015 in Boulder City. He was born in New Hampshire to Henry and Deloris morrissette. Richard was living in Denver in December 1963 when he enlisted in the U.S. Air Force to serve five consecutive tours in the Vietnam War, three of which were volunteer. He served his country with pride and honor for 20 years and retired as a tech sergeant in December 1983. He married Julie Ann Rothermel, the love of his life, Dec. 16, 1967 in Englewood, Colo. When Julie was just three years old, the two met, having told each other from as early as age five that they were going to get married. Richard's face wore a constant smile, so long as he was not on camera, an old habit formed in the military. He loved to travel, even if only to the other end of town, he just loved to see the country he fought so hard to protect. He was always listening to music, no matter the genre and his movie repertoire was just about endless. One could always find him playing games and cracking jokes, especially on nurses and family members. He knew when someone needed a laugh and was quick to deliver, his warm smile and laugh just as infectious as his jokes. His love for his country was as great as that of a mother to her child, but none can compare to his love for his grandchildren and his family who never left his side. A member of the VFW, American Legion, Cootie and the Moose Lodge, as well as a strong supporter of multiple veteran organizations, Richard will definitely be remembered for his kind heart and his dedication to fully serve even those he had never met. His wish was to be remembered as a person who forgave anyone and everyone. Richard is survived by his wife, Julie Morrissette; three children, Gladys Mercedes Fenyves, and her husband, Mark, of Boulder City, Patty Marie Morrissette of Colorado Springs, Colo., and Henry Ronald Morrissette of Cheyenne, Wyo.; two adored grandchildren, Alexis and Blake Fenyves; two brothers, Tony Morrissette of Cheyenne, and Robert Morrissette of Denver; and a sister, Violet. Funeral services will be at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, March 26, at Hope Baptist Church 850 Ave. B, Boulder City, NV 89005. Burial will follow the service noon at Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery, 1900 Veterans Memorial Drive, Boulder City, NV 89005. To commemorate Richard and his patriotic spirit, come dressed in red, white and blue. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Wounded Warrior Foundation in honor of Richard Morrissette.
