LARNED — George Allen Morrill, 70, went home to be with the Lord, Wednesday Jan. 30, 2019. He passed away quietly in his home with his wife by his side after suffering a long illness.
George was born Nov. 7, 1948, in Great Bend, Kan. He was the son of Ernest and Jane Morrill.
Survivors include, wife, Ruth (Hanson) Morrill; sons, Joshua, Paola, Kan., and James, New York, N.Y.; and four grandsons, Isaac, Chillicothe, Mo., Aaron, Jacob, and Seth, Paola, Kan.; one sister, Marsha Morrill, Lindstrom, Minn.
George owned and operated Morrill Hay Co. which he founded in 1970 until 2017, growing the business from a few hundred acres to nearly 10,000 acres at one time. Morrill Hay Company was a custom harvesting business, processing Alfalfa hay and supplying local feed yards, at one time employing 25 to 30 people. George was gifted in business and business management and was very servant minded, wanting the best for his customers.
George was a good and godly man, giving his life to the Lord in 1985 at the age of 37. He was a generous man with a constant smile. He loved his family and doted on his four grandsons. Words cannot express how much he will be missed.
Two scriptures that brought much comfort to George and the family are:
“Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.” Psalm 116:15 and, Psalm 73:26
“My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”
