Born and reared in Maury County, he was the son of the late Manson Morrow and the late Edith Walls Morrow. As a child he attended Woodrow and McDowell Elementary Schools. He was a 1965 graduate of Columbia Military Academy and a 1969 graduate of The University of Tennessee at Martin. He earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in Agriculture. While attending UTM he was a proud member of the Alpha Gamma Rho Fraternity. Buddy loved his fraternity brothers and built a lifetime of friendships. He served as Secretary and Alumni Secretary of the Alpha Upsilon Chapter.

Buddy was a life long beef cattle farmer. His love for agriculture and the land started as a child being raised on the family farm where he continued his career and raised his family. He took pride in his cattle, crops, and the land. Over the years he earned several awards and honors for his faithfulness to the farm. In 1976 he was outstanding Young Farmer of the Year, 1988 he was Category I Conservation Farmer of the Year, and in 2015 Kiwanis Club of Columbia recognized him for his Lifetime of Dedication to Agriculture.

Buddy also gave back to his community by serving as a board member of the Maury Farmers Co-op, First Farmers Advisory Board, Maury County Cattleman's Association and most recently he served several years on the Maury County Soil Conservation District Board.

Buddy was a man of few words but his sense of humor could light up a room. He was honest and dedicated to everything in life. He loved so much his wife, children, and his dog, Mike but his real pride and joy was his only grandson Banks Voss.
