“You never think this type of thing will happen to you, but it has to us, ” said Marie Anderson, 28, Mr Morrison’s daughter.
The family are now hoping to raise awareness of the fact that one punch can kill, and raise funds to pay for a memorial bench for the much loved grandfather.
The family hope to place the bench at Littlethorpe wherethey lived before moving to Burton Leonard.
Marie added: “One punch can kill, it isn’t something anyone thinks will happen but it does.”
A charity football match and family fun day will be held at Harrogate Railway Football Club on Sunday August 9 starting at midday. A team of family and friends will play the Rochdale team Mr Morrison supported and there will be a BBQ and bouncy castle.
