My grandparents and "Doc and Aunt Grace" were dear friends in Nyack. I heard many a story of the fun the two families had going to the beach and celebrating birthdays together. Bob and my mother, Jean, who just passed away in May, were devoted friends for over 90 years. For the last few years, they had a regular Tuesday morning telephone date. His friendship was such a comfort to her. The world was a better place for having this good and decent man in it and he will be missed. My love and condolences to all the Morrow family....Kathy

Dear Helen, Joann, Bruce and family,
So sorry to hear of the passing of your Dad. Your family was such a big part of my summers growing up on Culver's Lake. Your parents were such great people and I remember dinners, playing cards and some sleepovers.

I especially was so impressed in how much you Dad was always working in the garage, tending to the yard and making his daily long swim down east shore. Such a kind and loving person he was and now may he be at peace and reunited with your mom in the Lord's Heavenly Kingdom.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. May God Bless you! Deb

Our esteem for our long time friend and member, Bob Morrow, is overflowing. He was as kind and warm as they come – inclusive – joyful - a committed volunteer. Simply put, an exceptional man of endless joy de vrie, and an iconic community figure.

Bob was a most incredible gentleman. We affectionately called him Texas Bob. He came to a couple of parties at our home and he would sing any song you requested. He Is heartbreakingly missed by his family, but those who knew him for just a few years will miss him greatly also. He was one of a kind.

Bob will be missed so very much. He was a kind and loving man and we have so many wonderful-beautiful memories of him and Mary at the lake — especially with our children when they were young. Bob and Mary were like grandparents to our children when we lived in Sparta and they kept Libby safe while I delivered Chrissy. The world will be missing one more beautiful soul. Bob lived a wonderful long life and his heart was always loving and kind for others. My condolences to his children and grandchildren who I know loved him dearly. I am glad that his last moments were at the Lake he loved so much! Peace and love to his family!
