Clark Morrow, 51, of Olathe, passed away unexpectedly on February 1st, 2014 at his home.
He was born on August 15th, 1962 to Robert and Barbara Morrow in Fort Knox, Kentucky.
Clark worked as a police officer in the City of Olathe from January 19th, 1989 until he retired on March 18th, 2013. During his service to the community of Olathe he worked as a Police Officer in Patrol and Investigations; a Sergeant in Patrol and Police Administration; a Lieutenant in Investigations; a Captain in Investigations and Patrol; and a Major in Support Services. During his time of service he was the recipient of the Kansas Association of Chiefs of Police Silver Award for Valor in 1993 as well as the department’s Medal of Valor and Purple Heart uniform bar.
Additionally, Clark received the highest award given to law enforcement officers with the City of Olathe three times-the William A. Shepard Award. He was the commander for the first few days in Greensburg, Kansas after the devastating tornado strike there. He proudly served the citizens of Olathe and the regional area for 24 years.
For more than a decade Clark has been writing films, plays and books. In 2006 his screenplay “Peepers” was a finalist in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science’s Nicholl Fellowship. He went on to write several original screenplays and teleplays and was working with producers in Hollywood developing film and tv projects. Since retirement he has been dividing his time between Olathe and Los Angeles. His play “The War Room” was selected for presentation and workshop as part of PlayLab at the Great Plains Theater Conference in 2012. He recently completed his first novel “Hitch in the City.” He was a proud member of the Writers Guild of America, West and the Dramatists Guild of America.
Clark was a genuine, caring man who had a deep love for his family and friends. He will be deeply missed by many.
He was preceded in death by his parents and his sister Brenda Lee Miller.
Clark is survived by his wife of thirty-two years Andrea Morrow and his loving daughters, Emma and Mairen, and his “adopted” son, Andrew Whiteside and his brother Danny Morrow.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Andrea Morrow for a college fund to be supplemented for Emma and Mairen.
