My dearest friend, confessor and spiritual director who has been by my side in times of trouble and celebration. A good and holy priest... I will miss him very much. I know he is with the Lord he loves so much!!

Rest In Peace, Father Morrow!

I was an alter boy at St. Jude in the 70’s and 80’s and served many masses with him. A wonderful man, will be surely missed.

God bless him! My parents were friends with him for too many years to count. He was a large part of our lives at St. Jude’s and beyond.

He baptized both of the boys, Atlee and Jack. We hold him closely in our hearts.

He was a wonderful priest! So kind and good!!!

RIP - he was a kind soul and a great priest. Saddened by his passing. May the Lord have him in his glory.

He was a close member of Mary and Warren Turners family. He was always there for everyone in family. He, Monsignor Kiernan, and Fr. Gilroy married Joe and I 50 yrs ago. He is having a well deserved rest. Our entire family loves him. Jane Stretch

Rest In Peace, good and faithful servant. We have lost a light to guide us. He will be truly missed 😢

Father Morrow will be greatly missed...he blessed our first son in the hospital when he was born and it’s a memory I’ll never forget.

A very dear friend and a wonderful priest!

Rest In Peace FR.Morrow Always Joyful and well come you will be Missed Father.🙏..

Prayers for Father Morrow and his family. He will be missed.

Father Morrow was the best! When I was young and a Girl Scout camping out at Timber Ridge he drove to the camp area to say Mass for us. I begged him to drive his Chevy out in the woods. I was only 12 at the time. Of course, I lost his keys. After a big search they were found. But poor Father, had to face Monsignor Moylan when he returned to OLA. What memories. Oh yes, he married Al Means and myself 53 years ago. Father, I will miss you but I will remember, dinners at my parents, CYO, your German Shepherd dog and Susan Hayward’s stories. Mary Jo Means

You will be greatly missed Father Morrow I will always remember our Habitat for Humanity builds with you leading prayer and the Blessing of Animals with you. Rest In Peace.

You will be missed, Fr Morrow. I will always remember how kind you were to my Grandmother and Mother when you would visit our home while you were pastor at St John's and after. Rest in Peace

Miss him already. What a humble servant of God. Surely, he is resting in Peace!

Rest in peace, Father...

You will be so greatly missed Fr. Morrow. We were so lucky to have known your humorous and loving spirit. 🙏🏻 May you Rest In Peace.

Prayers to his family!! We will miss him greatly!! Such a wonderful blessing to have had at CTK!! He always stopped to talk to the kids and we enjoyed him at the annual Easter egg hunt and blessing of the Easter baskets!!

You will be missed, Father. We were so blessed to have you for so long.❤️🙏🏻

He will be missed dearly. May God grant him peace.

May he rest in peace. He touched so many lives...he will be missed.

Rest in Peace Father Morrow. A kind soul we were blessed to have at Christ the King.

😪❤🙏
