Late The Doors star Jim Morrison's father has died, aged 89.
Rear Admiral George Morrison died of natural causes on 17 November (08).
A veteran of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, Morrison was largely disowned by his rock star son, who insisted his parents were dead in early interviews.
The feeling was mutual - the seaman rarely discussed his son as he rose up the ranks.
In 1990, Morrison visited his son's grave in Paris, France and had a plaque installed.
Shortly after the Morrisons moved to Coronado, California in 2002, the admiral's wife died, and reports suggest he has been in declining health ever since.
Rear Admiral Morrison's private memorial service was held last Wednesday (26Nov08) at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery in San Diego, California.
