Alfred “Kizer” Morrow
Alfred “Kizer” Morrow, 92, of Franklin went to be with his Lord Thursday May 23, 2013 in Franklin.
Alfred Morrow was born June 4, 1920 to the late Laura and Algeno Morrow. For most of Alfred’s life, he lived in Franklin Texas where he worked hard for his living.
At an early age, Alfred joined the CC Camp and had to discharge due to health issues. He later went back to work as an employess of the railroad as a mechanic. He also worked for Robertson County.
Alfred attended school at Brookville. Alfred met and married the late Imongene Tindle. To this union six children were born. He later met Rosie Lee Howkins and to this union six were also born.
After years of working, Alfreds health once again started to weigh heavy and fail him. In the early morning hour, God saw a better reason for him and decided to come and take home to live an everlasting life.
