Roy Morrow

Nov. 28, 1919 — Nov. 15, 2013

Roy Morrow Jr. was born Nov. 28, 1919, to Roy Morrow Sr. and Gladys May Corwin in Lewiston, Idaho. He passed away peacefully on Nov. 15, 2013, from cancer at the age of 94. He was preceded in death three years ago by his beautiful wife, Lydia. They were married for 64 years. He will be dearly missed by his two surviving children, Davie E. Morrow and Gail A. Burke.

Roy’s parents moved to California when he was very young. They eventually settled in Lindsay, Calif. Roy graduated from Lindsay High School in 1939. He worked as a clerk and then manager for a grocery store while going to college. He moved from Lindsay to San Mateo to attend San Mateo Junior College and majored in Forestry. He was an avid outdoorsman who loved to camp, fish and hike in the mountains and was an excellent photographer who enjoyed documenting his family and many life experiences.

Roy joined the U.S. Army on Dec. 4, 1942, and proudly served in the 325th Field Artillery Battalion, 84th Infantry Division as a Radio Technician during the Rhineland, Ardennes and Central European campaigns. During his years in the Army he received the Good Conduct Medal, the World War II Victory Medal, the American Campaign Medal and the European, African and Middle Eastern Campaign Medal. He received his Honorable Discharge from the Army on Feb. 3, 1946.

Roy and Lydia were married in 1949 and moved from Lindsay to Northern California where they resided in Folsom and Placerville and then settled in the Camino Area. Roy worked for many years as print pressman for the Mountain Democrat and the Pioneer Press. In 1977 he went to work for the El Dorado Irrigation District as a Waste Water Treatment Operator. He retired after 21 years on Aug. 21, 1998.

Memorial services will be held on Saturday, Dec. 7, 2013, at 11 a.m., at the Chapel of the Pines Funeral Home, 2855 Cold Springs Road in Placerville, Calif. We would like to thank and express our sincere gratitude to Snowline Hospice and the staff at the Apple Country Care Home in El Dorado for the loving and gentle care our father received before his passed. His final days were blessed and very peaceful. Please make remembrances in Roy’s name to Snowline Hospice of El Dorado County, 2520 Pleasant Valley Road, Diamond Springs, CA 95619 or online at snowlinehospice.org.
