So saddened to hear of John’s passing, we spent a lot of good times together in high school and bowled and played softball together until we were well in to our 30’s. My most heartfelt sympathies to the Morrow family. RIP my friend….

My deepest sympathies to John’s Family. He was a good man with a huge heart and is surely at heaven’s gates. We were together for five years trying to
get each other through the most aweful trauma imaginable. You go on day to day but you never forget, During the ice storm of’ ’98 John drove as far as
the road let him, then he walked the rest of the five miles with 2 loafs of bread and a gallon of milk up to myself and my three children, THAT was the kind of man John was. He has surely earned his angels wings. Rest in Peace my friend.

Esther, Jimmy, Randy and Bonnie. My heart is sad to hear John lost his fight.
My family and I have so many fond childhood memories of playing hide and seek and watching cartoons at the old house before you all moved to Chaumont. We had such fun! I’m sure John is at peace. Hugs to you all.

To the Morrow Family and his family in Fla. John was a very generous guy, he dj’d a dance I put on for Relay for Life and never charged me. He also dj’d many times at his friend’s Larry and Nancy LaFave “Pinstripes” garage parties. RIP John.
