Richard L. Morrow, Sr., 73, of Bolivar, formerly of Navarre, passed away quietly, Tuesday morning, December 1, 2020. Born December 29, 1946, in Meadville, Pennsylvania, a son to the late Curtis and Gertrude (Seidler) Morrow, Richard – known to everyone as “Moose,” graduated from Navarre High School with the Class of 1965. Pursuing a career in the trucking industry that eventually spanned more than 52 years, Richard applied himself to every facet of the industry. He particularly loved to drive and for a time, together with his wife, Beth, were independent owner-operators in their own enterprise.
Richard treasured his wife and family and placed them at the center of his life. As a loving husband, a devoted dad and grandpa, and a dependable friend, he looked out for and protected those entrusted to his care. A skilled mechanic and handyman, he willingly gave his time and energy in helping others. He made friends easily and never knew a stranger. He loved to travel; loved to cook; was a master of the “power nap;” enjoyed camping and classic cars – and then there were his two fur buddies, Henry and Tilley...!
Predeceased by his parents; Richard is survived by his wife, Elizabeth A. “Beth” Morrow, of the home; their children, Lisa Ann Hicks and David A. Morrow, both of Florida, Richard L. (Dawn) Morrow, Jr., of Navarre and Bryan P. (Julia) Morrow, of Bolivar; grandchildren, Emily and Lauren Myers, Chelsey and Sean Morrow, Summer Crouch, and Alison and Aiden Morrow. His sister, Kathy Morrow, of Canton also survives, together with his nieces and nephews and a host of wonderful friends.
