Please accept my condolences. Mr Morrow taught me to type in EHS and I earned my living for several years by typing. I ended up typing about 120 words a minute and worked for insurance companies, lawyers and CPA's that needed typed legal papers. He really impacted my young adulthood. His is remembered fondly.

My deepest condolences to his family. Mr. John Morrow was one of my favorite teachers in high school. I had loved taking my typing classes because of him and I learned so much from him, even to this day during my typing, I would have fond memories of him patiently working with me in getting those darn keystrokes typed in the correct form.

I'm want to express our condolences on behalf of the Forest Service family and from Wendy and I. Jack was a great employee, public servant, teacher and friend. He was an incredible mentor to so many young forest service employees, and always so good with the public. He cared so much about the forest resource and worked so long and hard to make it a better place. Jack will be missed!

I have many fond memories of working with Jack for many years as a seasonal employee with the Forest Service. He taught us all how to enjoy the outdoors and provide a beautiful setting for the forest visitors. It was always a day full of laughs and hard work when I worked with Jack. My sincere condolences!

Peace and condolences to Mr. Moroow's family. He was my all-time favorite teacher; the smile that you see in his obit picture is what we saw every day from Mr. Morrow. He was warm and kind and everything that is important in a teacher. I never could get the rhythm of typing that he made me feel I was capable of achieving, but he never gave up on me.He was a wonderful person.

I got word a bit late of Jack's passing. I sure will miss this beloved friend.
.... I worked with Jack on the Evanston Ranger district for the USFS for 9 years (late 70's into the 80's), as a fellow patrolman. So many fun memories of Jack making me laugh, and his mentoring me (spending the day bouncing in the truck together on those rocky roads)on my first patrol over in the Blacksfork side of the district. Lots of grins in the Bear River RS with coffee, or a group of us patrolmen (Huby, John Coles, Don Barnerd, and Jack) chattin' it up at the end of the work day while fueling our trucks up at the warehouse. Jack will live on in me!
