Obituary Text 

March 10, 1930-November 28, 2018
Benny Morrow, beloved father, grandfather, and friend passed away in Dallas, Texas, November 28th, 2018. He will be remembered for his love of life, and love of his family and friends. Benny had the ability to reach out to people in friendship. Many will remember Benny's usual greeting, "thank you for being my friend." He was devoted to his family and friends.

Benny was the son of Lydia Ware and Aye Morrow. He was born on March 10, 1930 in Garland, Texas. His siblings included Lonnie Ray Morrow, Dorothy Faye Morrow, Elmer Lee Morrow, Joyce Ware Morrow, Moreas Morrow Buchanan, Onieta Morrow Day, and Robert Gerald Morrow.

Benny's colorful life spanned the Great Depression, Korean War, and a lifetime of work and contributions. He was born at the height of the Great Depression of the 1930's. His father was a farmer and carpenter who worked diligently to provide for his family. Benny entered the workforce at an early age to help support his family. He began school in Rockwall, Texas, and later completed his education Garland, Texas, and Allen Military Academy in Bryan, Texas.

Benny proudly served his country in the Korean War. He served for twenty-eight months and held the rank of Corporal in the U.S. Army. Benny was a disabled veteran due to his service.
Later in life after the Korean War, his love of automobiles contributed to his lifetime work in the auto industry. Benny began in the parts department of a Dallas car dealership. He operated a wrecking service, but his outstanding salesmanship skills later helped to create a successful career in auto sales.

The family would like to thank Benny's many friends for loving him. Additionally, the family would like to thank Seasons Hospice Inpatient Center and Benny's doctors.

He leaves his love and a legacy to his survivors: son, Rory Morrow and wife Linda Daugherty Morrow, his beloved sister and only surviving sibling, Onieta "Tuck" Morrow Day, Misti D. Walton, granddaughter, Jeff Walton, son-in-law, great grandson, Brewer, 6, and great-granddaughters Amelia, 4, Sofi, 3, and Naomi, 2.

Services will be held at Williams Funeral Home, 1600 S. Garland Avenue, Garland, Texas. Visitation will be held on Saturday December 8 at 11:00 AM and service to follow at 1:00 PM. The service will be officiated by Rob Morrow, Jeff Walton, and guests from the audience.

Interment will be held at Fort Worth National Cemetery on Monday, December 10, and will depart from Williams Funeral Home at 9:45 AM. Guests will gather for the procession to the cemetery at exactly 9:45 AM.
