Ricky Lynn Morrow, age 43, passed away on Friday, January 16, 2015 at the Johnson City Medical Center following a car accident on January 9, 2015 in Washington County, TN. Ricky attended Canah Chapel Free Will Baptist Church in his younger years and was baptized in 1980. He worked in construction as an iron worker for United States Nitrogen in Mosheim, TN.
Ricky was an Erwin native. He enjoyed life to the fullest. He never met a stranger and would help do anything for anybody. He loved the outdoors, fishing and camping with his son Colt. He was a loving son, husband, father, step-father, brother, and even a grandfather. He really had a soft spot for kids, he loved them all.
He is preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Tolby and Louise Gillenwater, who helped raise him, Mother-in-law and Father-in-law, Floyd Dale and Willa Dean Edwards and by an Uncle, Tommy Morrow.
