Danny Fred Morrow

Danny Fred Morrow, of Graford, died April 24, 2013. He was 73 years old. Although he held several different jobs and lived various places, Dan’s true home was always Graford, where he lived and served the community from behind the counters at Morrow Grocery and Market.

A jack of all trades and master of any he truly wanted to master, Dan learned much from his family including unselfish service, community, humility, scholarship and responsibility; in turn, Dan  passed such traits along to all who came his way.

Dan was born on Oct. 3, 1939, to Horace Harrison and Grace Lou Erwin Morrow in Graford. He attended school at Graford graduating in 1957.  After high school he attended Tarleton State College then graduated from Texas A&M with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, Class of 1961.

Dan served in the United States Marine Corps, reaching the rank of captain. He worked as a Professional Civil Engineer in the Dallas Fort Worth area during the 1960’s.

The early 1970s found Dan in Graford at the store. Morrow Grocery was started by his father in 1944 and is still operating today.

For the next 40 odd years Dan worked in the store with his father, his brother, Erwin, sister-in-law, Judy, Wimpy Gillespie, Natalie Chaney, Dalton Freeman, and many others. To say that Dan worked in the store for years does not adequately describe what he did or how valuable a community member he was.

Dan served the community in ways too numerous to count.  In times of difficulty, Dan would always offer a helping hand. Ralph Waldo Emerson described best what seems to have ultimately been the focus of Dan’s life.

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
