David Clifford Morrow, age 72, passed away peacefully on March 7, 2019 at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital in Fort Worth, TX. He was born September 20, 1946 in Amarillo to Dorothy and Clifford Morrow. He was a 1964 graduate of Amarillo High School, and in 1966, married Laura Elizabeth Florey of Odessa, TX. He received a BS in Chemical Engineering from Texas Tech in 1968; and completed his Masters of Engineering. His career began with Shell Oil, which took him to Denver and Houston before moving him to Odessa, Texas to work with Rexene Polymer, Mallard Exploration, and Perry Gas. In the early 1980s, he began an independent career with Wilson-Morrow and then Southtex Treaters. Most recently he consulted for Morrow Energy, Agile Solutions, and Morrow Renewables; but his passions were ranching, inventing and spending time with his grandchildren. David devoted himself to causes that were dear to his heart. He was an active participant in the Domican Development Group, serving for 20 years on their board (including several terms as president), and led numerous work teams to build schools, housing, and churches. In 2016, David was named Honorary Cannon of the Iglesia Episcopal Dominicana. He was also a driving force behind the Allegro Chorale Group and Midland Montessori School, and a supporter of the Odessa High School Mariachi program. David was preceded in death by his parents and brother Michael. Left to honor David and bear witness to his love and legacy of faith are his wife of fifty two years, Laura; his children Paul (Katy) Morrow, Luke (Lori) Morrow, and Susanna (Ross Olsaver) Morrow; his sister, Charlotte McClure; and 10 grandchildren. An Episcopal Memorial Service will be held Tuesday, March 19th, at 10:30 a.m. at First Presbyterian Church in Midland, Texas. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in David's name to the Dominican Development Group (dominicandevelopmentgroup.org) or a charity of your choice.

My Uncle David did so much for me personally that I am forever blessed. Words cannot express how much the kindness and unselfishness means to me that he and Laura have extended to me for my entire life. He was always there for me and my family at every stage of my life with a kind smile and a heartfelt welcome. He was fun loving, talented, highly intelligent, hard working, and had a great sense of humor. I am thankful for every single moment spent with him individually and with his family. I hope that his family will be comforted at this difficult time after his passing.

Morrow Family,
The San Miguel Arcangel Church family is upset. He is in our thoughts and we will miss him. He was always our protective angel, always offering his concern for our church necessities by offering us his support and unconditional love. My deepest condolences to the whole family. He will always live on in our hearts.
Rest in paradise next to our heavenly Father.

I saw the post about your dad. I'm so sorry. He was a wonderful man, so full of joy, and I was very lucky to have gotten to know him through you.

Obviously, I've been out of touch, but I think of you often. My love and prayers to you and your family.

I was shocked to receive Susanna's text about David's death. He has been a wonderful friend for half my life. I will miss his wit and his crazy ideas (the zip line). I will miss Him. My prayers are with all of you, especially you, Laura, as you go through this very difficult time. My love to you all.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I know how hard it is to lose someone suddenly. I loved to hear him sing at Saint Johns in Brownwood. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
