Snow Camp

Robert Samuel Morrow, 92, of Snow Camp, passed away quietly in his sleep on May 24, 2022.

Bob was born on May 14, 1930 and was raised in Kingsport, TN. Education and serving others was important to Big Bob. After service 4 years in the Air Force, he received his BA in Industrial Arts from East Tennessee State, receiving Driver Ed qualifications at Lenior Rhyne, and a Master's from NC State. During this time in November 1954, he married Ruth Virginia Waltz. They recently celebrated their 67th anniversary.

Big Bob taught at many schools before moving to Greensboro, where he served as the Director of Vocational Education for Guilford County until he retired in 1993. At this time he became active in his church, Quakermen, Silk Hope Ruritan, Friends Disaster, and the American Legion. He used this time as an opportunity to travel to disaster areas to rebuild homes and communities, all while keeping up his favorite hobby in the garden. In addition to his parents Robert and Lola Vaughn Morrow, he is preceded in death by his daughter, Patricia Lynn Haywood; and grandson, Thomas Andrew Haywood.

He is survived by his wife Ruth; son, Edward Morrow, Sr. and wife Ellen; grandchildren, Eddie Morrow (Jennifer), Emily Morrow, John Haywood (Satina), and Sarah Ball (Martin); and 11 great grandchildren.
