We announce with great

sadness the loss of Desmond Morrow on May 24, 2014 at

the age of 89. He passed

peacefully in his sleep and

was fortunate to have had

many recent visits from friends and family. He is predeceased by his loving wife Ruth and

survived by his children Lisa

(Rick) Howard, Patti (George)

Dorin, Sue Braeuer

(John Kennedy), Mike

(Gabbi) Morrow and Jane( Jim) Kenzie as well as 12

grandchildren, two sisters and one brother. Des spent

most of his working life as a Pathologist at KGH and was co-founder of Valley Medical Laboratories. He was a

world traveller with many interests including fine

woodworking, outdoor adventure, skiing, tennis and flying. Above all he was a devoted husband and father and

will be missed dearly. His incredible sense of humour

continued to touch the lives of those around him, even through the physical challenges he faced in his latter years.
