Morrison, who was elected as Precinct 4 commissioner in 2006 and began serving in 2007, was serving his third term.
Morrison graduated from Round Rock High School and was an active member of the Round Rock community, serving with the YMCA, Round Rock Rotary Club, Round Rock Noon Kiwanis Club and the Williamson County Pop Warner Football League.

A former RRHS teacher and Texas State University instructor, Morrison had a bachelor's and master's degree from Texas State University. During his time on the commissioner's court, Morrison chaired the Williamson County Fleet Committee, the Capital Area Council of Governments Clean Air Force Committee, the Capital Area Rural Transportation Planning Organization Committee, the Round Rock Economic Development Partnership Committee, the Central Texas Resource Conservation & Development Council, and the Clean Air Coalition.
U.S. Rep. John Carter, R-Round Rock, said he was "deeply saddened" by Morrison's death.
"There is so much to say about Ron and his commitment to our community," Carter said in a statement. "Ron served our country with distinction and was a dedicated servant for the people of Williamson County. He led with integrity, wit and most of all passion. He will be greatly missed by many throughout our region."
