Obituary

Visitation for Bob Morrow, age 76, of O’Neill, NE will be on Tuesday, November 10, 2020 from 5-7 PM at Biglin’s Mortuary in O’Neill. The family requests that everyone in attendance wear a mask and abide by social distancing practices. A Private Family Funeral Service will be held at Biglin's Mortuary. Burial will be in the O’Neill Cemetery. Biglin's Mortuary in O'Neill is in charge of arrangements.

Virgil Robert (Bob) Morrow was born January 12,1944 to Virgil and Zola (Sholes) Morrow in Leavenworth, Kansas. Bob was baptized at the United Methodist Church in Inman, NE, and in 1962 graduated from Inman High School. Upon graduation he attended Universal Trade School in Omaha, NE, after which he returned to O’Neill, NE to work for William Krotter Co, and Eby’s Incorporated. Following a short time at each of these, he opened his own full service gas station, Bob’s Mobil, in downtown O’Neill and operated it for about ten years. After over a decade of being a mechanic, he spent about 12 years as the parts manager at the Ford Garage in West O’Neill, earning several awards in sales. Next, Bob moved into a completely different kind of work becoming a weatherization technician at Central Nebraska Community Services. There he finished out his career in public service and entered retirement, but this never meant slowing down. Bob spent the rest of his life working on the family farm and building homemade furniture and knickknacks for family and friends. These were some of his most enjoyable years of retirement.

Early in his career Bob met his wife Veldeen Pinkerman of rural Lynch, NE. The couple married October 17, 1964 at the O’Neill First Presbyterian Church. To this union three sons, Greg, Kevin and Kelly, were born. Bob loved live music, and in their early years he and Veldeen spent many weekends attending local dances where Bob was known as a good dancer. Throughout Bob’s life he enjoyed hunting, fishing, bird watching, and, in general, appreciating the outdoors. When not working at the farm, restoring a car, or at home on a home improvement project, he took great pride in helping his own children with any kind of home project they might have. Bob could fix, install, build, or problem solve almost any challenge he was confronted with. He took great pride in all of his work and never left a project uncompleted. These same values were instilled in his own children and passed along in his important role as grandpa as well.

Bob will always be remembered as a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. Bob is survived by his wife of 56 years Veldeen of O’Neill; children, Greg and Tracy Morrow of Grand Island, Kevin and Katie Morrow of O’Neill, Kelly and Lara Morrow of O’Neill; seven beloved grandchildren, Jacob Morrow, Carter Morrow, Emily Morrow, Claire Morrow, Drew Morrow, Sara Morrow, Charlie Morrow; one great grandson Miles Morrow; sister Patty and Dick Hofmockel of Council Bluffs; sister Sharon and Floyd Sorensen of Grand Island; Sandra and Tim Dempsey of O’Neill; James Morrow of Osceola; Alan and Laurie Morrow of Inman; Pam and Byron Wilson of O’Neill as well as many cherished nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends.

Bob was preceded in death by his parents Virgil Morrow and Zola Keil and one grandson Blaine Morrow.

Bob passed away on Sunday, November 8, 2020 at Avera St. Anthony’s Hospital in O’Neill at the age of 76. He will be loved, missed, and remembered by all who knew him.
