Robert “Bob” Dale Morr was born in Odebolt, Iowa, on June 21, 1935, to Floyd A. and Wanda V. (Moore) Morr. He grew up in Odebolt, attending school and working at the local variety store until entering the service. He also attended the University of Iowa.
Bob served in the armed forces, both in the U.S. Army and Air Force. He was a Vietnam Veteran, during which time he was involved with an intelligence group where he served as analyst and agent. Following his enlistment, he resided in Thailand for several years until his return to the states where he spent several years in the Ames, Iowa, area where he owned and operated a coin shop. He most recently resided in Lake Havasu City, Arizona.
Bob had fond memories of his childhood in the Odebolt community and chose to make it his “eternal home”. He was a lover of flowers and plants and enjoyed growing and tending his own. Other personal interests included coin collecting and playing the lottery. He spent a great amount of time following politics and policies and researching various other topics related to his interests.
Much time was devoted to researching the Morr genealogy and history for the benefit of future generations. His impeccable desire for accuracy and organization contributes to this legacy he has compiled for family. He was an avid reader and enjoyed analyzing government and legal policy. Over the years Bob helped numerous individuals with both personal and financial burdens. His compassion and generosity have been honorable. Bob was a proud member of the American Legion.
Robert is survived by his older brother, Earl A. Morr of Hampton, VA, as well as many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Floyd Morr and Wanda Morr Pratt, brothers Richard D. Morr, James F. Morr, and Craig M. Morr.
The family wishes to thank Art and Luann Bauer and Bill and Terri Cline for the compassion and care they provided Bob both in the past several years, and especially in his final days.
