Dislikes:
* Cars that were so modern and computerized that he could do little to work on the engine them himself

He attened Mass faithfully, but stopped taking the Eucharist after Paul IV issued Humanae vitae. His sixth and last child was born in 1966. His firm had all the necessary modern equipment, but he did not have the chance to computerize it with modern CAD systems the way his brother's firm eventually did.

WKM died in August of 1984 at Kenmore Mercy Hospital while recovering from a heart attack. On the day he was scheduled to return home from the hospital, he suffered a second fatal heart attack. He had chosen to shave off his beard the night before he died.

Andrew William Morrow is the fourth child and second son of William Knight Morrow. Andrew worked the summer of 1980 as a grounds keeper at Mt. Olivet where the Morrow family purchase four plots upon the death of WKM.

Morrow's side of the family has many fine minds. Among the best was Robert Peter Morrow II. His children include Robert Peter III, David, Rebecca and Daniel . Robert Peter IV has recently emerged to assert himself.
