Carl L. Morrill

Carl L. Morrill, 83, Logansport, passed away at 1:45 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 24, 2013, in Woodbridge Health Campus.

Born Feb. 17, 1930, in Argos, he was the son of the late Herbert and Essie (Leffert) Morrill.

Carl was an insurance salesman for Lafayette Life and Metropolitan Insurance in his later years. During the late 1960s he was part owner and manager of the Tastee-Freez and prior to that he worked for the Jewel Tea Company, making home deliveries.

Mr. Morrill was a U.S. Army veteran serving during the Korean War.

He enjoyed playing euchre anywhere he could find a game, and was a fan of the Indiana Pacers from the ABA days. Carl was a regular at McDonalds as a member of the Sunshine Club when he was in Logansport and he enjoyed spending his winters with Dorothy and his “Florida friends” in Zephyrhills. He took up running in his late 40’s and competed in many local road races and marathons. He was quite proud of the academic accomplishments of his granddaughters Ashlynn, Alli and Taylor.

Surviving family members are a son, Brian Morrill (Tara), Logansport; daughter, Carla Cesarski (Rich), Cary, N.C.; two brothers, Art Morrill (Lois), Argos; Harold Morrill, Greenville, Tenn.; devoted and loving companion, Dorothy Waitt; three grandchildren, Ashlynn Morrill, Alli Morrill, both of Indianapolis, and Taylor Cesarski, Cary, N.C.

He was preceded in death by one brother, Gabriel, and one sister, Ruth.

A funeral service will be at 11 a.m. Saturday in the Gundrum Funeral Home with Dr. Horace Smith officiating. Burial will be in the IOOF Cemetery, Rochester.

Visitation will be from 9 a.m. Saturday until the time of service.
