Ralph Waldo Emerson described best what seems to have ultimately been the focus of Dan's life. "The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well." Dan was a member of the Texas A&M Ex-Students Association and the Graford Lions Club. He was known as a willing sponsor/participant/supporter of most community activities and civic projects. He served on the Graford Independent School District Board of Trustees for 12 years. He attend the First United Methodist Church of Graford. Dan was a lifelong reader of books, a lover of the written word and a day did not go by that Dan did not learn something new. Dan is survived by his daughter, Lisa Block of Parker, Colo., and husband Gary, and their daughters, Lauren and Hannah; his brother, Jim Morrow, and wife Billie, of Austin, Texas; another brother, Bill Morrow, and his wife, Betty, of Tulsa, Okla., sister-in-law Judy Morrow, of Graford; and sister Carolyn Cooper, of Mineral Wells. Dan loved and was loved by his surviving nieces and nephews Candy Cernigliaro, Riley Couger, Crager Couger, John Morrow, Julie Jansen, Joe Morrow, Jane Beasley, Greg Morrow, Erwin Morrow, Bradley Morrow, Mindy Atchley, Sam Morrow, Patti Davis, Cara Shoemaker and Erin Ralph and their families. He leaves behind a legion of others - friends, relatives, cronies, associates, buddies, Aggies, teachers, classmates, and strangers old and young, whose lives either touched or were touched by Dan's. Dan was preceded in death by his mother and father, his sister and her husband, Sammy and Jack Couger, and his brother, Erwin.
