Robert Holcroft was truly an amazing person. He was always so kind to me. Whenever I saw him at Morrow Store, he always had time to visit with me, tell me about his garden or his dog, and what life was like in Morrow when he was younger. I grew up thinking of him as a surrogate grandpa. He was a fixture in the Morrow community, and I will miss him greatly!

Robert will be missed by many. I will always remember the stories he would tell on my Grandmother’s front porch when he and Doris lived next door. He was a good man and told funny stories. I want to send condolences to the family. Tom and I hauled hay together and Marla and I went to school together at Morrow. Those were good times and Robert’s stories often included his children. I also enjoyed visiting with Robert when he would come to the bank. He would often come by my office to say hello.
