Danny “Crock” Morse was born to C.A. Morse and Evelyn Morse on March 5, 1953, in Wilson, Oklahoma and departed this life at the age of 68 on October 25, 2021, at his home surrounded by his loved ones.

As the middle child along with his older brother and younger sister growing up in Fox, Oklahoma, Crock enjoyed playing on the American Legion baseball team, as a left-handed pitcher. He also, enjoyed participating in football and basketball. The family enjoyed fishing together, which began his lifelong enjoyment of fishing and other outdoor sports. Upon graduation from high school in 1971, he joined the Army National Guard, completing seven years of service.

On December 18, 1971, he married his beloved wife, Tommie Lou Pickens. To that union their son, Danny was born in 1973. Their family was complete when their daughter Amber was born in 1977. He worked at Uniroyal, for 9 years. Then he began his oilfield career at the Fox gas plant and then transferring to Seiling to DCP Midstream, where he retired after 38 years.

Danny and Amber have fond memories of their dad driving them to school every morning, making sure they always heard his story of the day. Danny loved coon hunting with his son, brother, nephews and friends. He always enjoyed sharing stories and memories of his childhood and life experiences.

Upon his retirement in 2016, Danny and Tommie purchased a home on Lake Texhoma, where they could spend time doing what they loved fishing and being out on the lake. They remained there until his health declined, making it necessary to move to Beaver, Oklahoma, to be closer to family.
