    My deepest sympathies in the loss of “Bud” Morrison. I was privileged and blessed to work with and for Bud at ConAgra from the 70s to the 90s. I will hold fond memories of his kindness, his generosity, his intelligence and his sense of humor in my heart. He was very special and he will be greatly missed.

    My deepest sympathies to Mr. Morrison’s family. Bud was one of the kindest, sweetest men I ever had the pleasure of knowing. I joined ConAgra Mills in June 1979 and Bud was one of the first people I met. He always had a kind word and encouraged his people to exceed. Bud Morrison is one of my fondest memories of the early days of ConAgra. Jill Egnoski

    Bud was the nicest, gentlest and kindest person I have ever met. He will be missed by all who have ever had the privileged to spend time him.

    Bud was my boss at Con Agra for about ten of the best , happiest years of my work life. He was a smart , kind, tough boss. He treated me like a contemporary even though I was much younger than most of my peers. He was a true gentleman. I miss him and the time I spent with him as my boss.

    A wonderful man and friend. He gave much to many. And his goodness continues.

    I worked with Bud at ConAgra, what a fine man! I will remember him for his easy smile and quiet laugh. He was always grateful for the service we provided him and his companies. He was fair and honest in all his dealings, well respected by all. Bud will be missed, but remembered.

    Sincere sympathies go out to Bud’s family. They are a true reflection of the wonderful human being he was, and I am honored to know them. It was my great fortune an honor to be asked to be Bud’s physical therapist for a time. I couldn’t have asked for a better patient. During that time, we also got to be good friends, again my great fortune and honor. As many have already stated, there was never a more thoughtful, kind, and respectful person to know. He always took a genuine interest in others and cared deeply for his family and friends. He had one of the sweetest smiles and senses of humor. He will definitely be missed and always remembered!

    World class guy. I learned so much from Bud

    Bud was the boss when I first started my job with Conagra in Omaha. He was a great man and everyone liked and respected him.

  • John R. Posted June 3, 2020 4:14 pm

    My friend and I were close friends with Todd Morrison. Todd had great respect for his father, and I hope they are reunited in everlasting health and peace.

    I am very sorry to learn of Bud’s passing. I met him when I joined ConAgra in 1983. At that time he was the head of the grain processing group. He was always a straight shooter, didn’t mince words and called it like it was. An excellent executive and always a fair and generous man. Am sure he will be missed.
