Christopher L. Morrell
Christopher Louis Morrell, 85, of Richmond, joined his wife, Patricia “Pretty” Morrell, in heaven on March 28, 2014.
He was born in Richmond, November 18, 1928. After retirement from many years in the trucking industry with Estes Trucking in Richmond, Chris and Patsy moved to their summer home on the Piankatank River in Hartfield. Chris most enjoyed spending time with his family at “The Rivah,” crabbing, fishing, gardening and sitting on the pier.
Chris is survived by his four children and seven grandchildren: daughter, Joan Morrell Horton, her husband Jeff, and their children Jessica and Jacob; son, Warren Morrell, his wife Carol, and their son Chris; son, Mark Morrell, his wife Linda, and their children Morgan and Mitchell; daughter, Ann Marie Hair, her husband Greg, and their children Kelsey and Cameron.
His favorite song was a family favorite of “You’re So Sweet and Wonderful,” verse 33. A private memorial service will be held by the family at a later date.
