Morey obitpic


Jerry “Dale” Morey, 72, of Hayden, Idaho, died July 1, 2014.  
He was born in Glasgow March 6, 1942, to Don and Anne Morey. As the son of a depot agent on the Great Northern Railroad, he developed early a love of railroading. As a young teenager, he worked as a section hand laying track and later became a telegrapher and relief depot agent during his summers.  
After attending high school first at Culbertson, he graduated from Great Falls High School in 1960.  Then, he attended Montana State in Bozeman, graduating in 1964 with a degree in industrial design and a desire to design cars eventually. His drawings show his wonderful talent.  
After graduation, though, he chose to join the Navy and entered flight school at Pensacola, Fla.  He was commissioned an Ensign March 26, 1965.  He served as the Captain of the P2V7 Aircraft assigned to Carrier Protection during two tours of Vietnam. After receiving several decorations and commendations, he was honorably discharged Aug. 27, 1969.  
Nov. 11, 1969, he became a pilot for United Airlines, based in San Francisco, Calif., and Denver, Colo.
His interests in railroading and cars never waned, though. During his career with United, he was a model railroader and classic car enthusiast, building and restoring several hot rods, including a 1950 Ford Business coupe that he painted Porche Guards Red with black and white scallops.
He retired from United in April 2001 and moved his family to Idaho. He enjoyed his retirement by boating on Lake Coeur d’Alene, cruising in his hot rods and convertibles, wintering in Yuma, Ariz., in his motorhome and on his ATVs.
He was preceded in death by his parents Anne and Don Morey.
He is survived by his son, Mitch of Helena; daughter, Katie of Denver, Colo.;  and two sisters, Dianne of Tempe, Ariz., and Donna of Hayden. He was loved by three women in his life, Judy Johnston/Simpson, Lynne Pewtherer/Aaro and Irene Olson.  
A graveside service was held Monday, July 7, at Washington State Veterans Cemetery in Medical Lake, Wash.
