Robert William (Bob) Morisak a resident of Willis, Texas, entered the presence of the Lord on Friday, January 17, 2020.  He was born June 21, 1944 in Baytown, Texas. 

He grew up in Highlands, Texas and graduated from Robert E. Lee High School in 1963; attended Lee Junior college in Baytown, Texas and completed his studies at Stephen F. Austin University in 1967 with a B.S. degree in Education and a minor in Business.  He attended graduate school at Sam Houston University in the study of kinesiology. 

He began his career in education, teaching and coaching at Marshall Jr., High and was properly named (Coach) after being involved in coaching track, football and basketball for 10 years at Brazosport, Freer, Dayton, Northwest Academy and C E King high schools. He is remembered fondly by many on his early track teams.

He became a State Farm Agent in July, 1976 and retired December 31, 2017, after providing 41.5 years of “Good Neighbor Service.”

His lifetime love for horses led him into breeding, training, and racing of thoroughbreds. Bob has had a ranch in Buffalo, Texas for the past fourteen years and previously owned a farm in Crosby, Texas. He enjoyed talking about and viewing all sports and ‘coaching’ from his chair!

At the time of his death he was still actively training horses and faithfully riding his bicycle with his Australian Shepherd service dog, Hachi and son, Omaha.
