Charlie Emil Morrell, 56, of Alma, CO passed away on Sept. 20, 2005 with his wife at his bedside at the Care Center Hospice in Aurora.
Morrell was born on July 18, 1949 in Babylon, NY. He grew up in Nebraska and, after graduating from Omaha's Westside High School in 1967, moved with his VW van to Colorado. He studied math, art, photography and welding at the University of Colorado. He was married in December 1971 to Beverly McCullough from Grand Rapids, Minn.
He was an original, one-of-a-kind, fun-loving person who was always learning something new. He had many and varied interests, and because of his good nature and playfulness, made friends wherever he was and from people of all walks of life. His passions were art, photography, music, reading, gardening, family and friends. Morrell was an Eagle Scout and greatly enjoyed the outdoors, camping and fishing.
Charlie had many interesting jobs, from traveling by bus across the U.S. with rock 'n' roll bands, to taking photos and doing light shows for Bill Graham at The Fillmore in Denver and San Francisco in the 1960s.
Morrell's life was lived well and to the fullest. His friends describe him as a terrific person, talented and kind, and good to his friends. He lived in the present and the way he wanted.
Charlie is survived by his loving wife and constant companion of 34 years, Beverly Morrell; parents, Johanna and Wilson Morrell; father-in-law, Lester McCullough; brothers- and sisters-in law David and Connie McCullough and their children, Luke and Erin and Richard and Colleena McCullough; as well as his kitty companions, Bart and Muffin.
No funeral service was held as that wasn't Morrell's way or wish.
