Pastor Kenneth Morrow, age 80, of Eddyville, KY passed away at 7:34pm on February 18, 2021.
He was born on January 28, 1941 to the late Clarence Morrow and Lucille Jones.
Pastor Kenny Morrow was known to many as a fellow coal miner and a proud UMWA worker. For 25 years, he held the mining occupation, at Ziegler, Peabody, and Black Beauty coal companies. He was also gifted in the Auto Body industry having worked at Boggess Chevrolet in Madisonville, KY, as well as Trice Hughes in Princeton, KY. And then, Kenny Morrow would become a co-pastor at Faith Fellowship Church, then a pastor at Higher Power Church in Eddyville, KY.
It was here that Kenny would find his greatest calling, and most extraordinary gifts, when he became a pastor. His love for the word of God was exemplary and this love was passed on to all he would meet. His days were spent studying the word of God and answering the calls of all who needed him. His boldness to preach the word of his Lord left him no less humble. Should he speak to you, one thing this day we are certain, he would ask “Are you ready; are you ready to meet Jesus?” For today, Pastor Kenneth Morrow has indeed met his Lord, and peace and glory are surely his for eternity.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his stepmother, Mary Jane Morrow, and two brothers, Carl Wayne Jones and Donnie Morrow.
Pastor Kenny Morrow is survived by his wife of 59 years, Dean Morrow of Eddyville, KY; one son, Ricky Morrow and his wife, Sabrina, of Kingsport, TN; one daughter, Angie Phillips and her husband, Darin, of Eddyville, KY; one granddaughter, Ashley Morrow of Chicago, IL; one grandson, Christopher Morrow and his wife, Meghann of Taylorsville, KY; three great grandsons: Kamden, Eli, and Isaac Morrow; one sister, Jean Vandiver of Jerome, ID, one brother, Larry Jones of AZ; along with numerous nieces and nephews, including many great nieces and great nephews.
