Sonny’s family wishes to express their gratitude especially, The Beacon Foundation. They work with LINKAGE, a program Mr. Jim Click owner of Jim Click Ford has created. This program helps our Handicap and/or Disabled citizens, be able to participate and contribute to our community. When Sonny started working this past spring he saw the world in a different light. He was given the opportunity to know life and was learning to communicate, he never met a stranger, immediately letting them know that he was working for Mr. Click. His job to others might seem menial but to him, it was a responsibility. He was held in high esteem and admiration by one and all. He saw light where we saw darkness, he saw happiness, where we saw sadness. He will be greatly missed by the many people he touched.

MORRISON, Robert ”Bob” born March 16, 1909 in Parlier, CA, died peacefully in his home in Tucson on July 8, 1999. He was a resident of Arizona for over 60 years and practiced law from 1947 until 1994. Bob was a well-known political figure in Arizona during the 1950s when he served as Pima County Attorney from 1950 to 1952 and Arizona Attorney General from 1954 to 1958. In 1958 he was the unsuccessful Democratic candidate for Governor. Tucsonans will best remember him for his successful cleanup of gambling and prostitution operations throughout Pima County during his term as County Attorney. As Attorney General his most notable accomplishment was the successful conclusion of the litigation in U.S. District Court that gave Arizona its allocation of Colorado River water for use in the Central Arizona Project. Without this landmark decision, it would have been impossible to build the Central Arizona Project. In later years, Bob practiced law in Tucson, Sierra Vista and Phoenix. He is survived by his companion Neva Jeanette Furman; his three sons, Robert (Cathy) of Tucson, John (Heather) and Michael both of Phoenix, daughters, Arpy of Green Valley and Carol of WA; brother, Bart Mosekian (Kitty) of Clovis, CA; 14 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Graveside Services Monday, 10:00 a.m. Evergreen Cemetery. Remembrances may be made to the charity of your choice. Arrangements by EVERGREEN MORTUARY & CEMETERY, N. Oracle & W. Miracle Mile.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
