I Will Miss My Friend Lawrence “Gumbo” Morrow

Lawrence “Gumbo” Morrow was a dear friend of mine and I was deeply saddened to hear that he passed away yesterday.


For those of you who didn’t know my friend, he was the founder and publisher of Gumbeaux Magazine.  The paper has been published for the past 27 years right here in Lake Charles, LA. and from what I understand will continue to celebrate Southwest Louisiana’s diverse culture and it’s strong heritage. Gumbeaux Magazine also, like Lawrence didn’t sugar coat the truth…good or bad.  It spoke for the “hood” and poor and for that, we thank you Lawrence for always keeping it real.

Me and Lawrence have always had a good relationship. I met Gumbo, in my early years of radio back in the early 90’s. From station to station (KZWA, KVEE, KJMH) we’ve always did business or been a part of something he was trying to do. He was a strong willed person, that said exactly what was on his mind and that’s one of the things that I will miss most about him. I will miss him, however I will always have good memories of him as well. My deepest condolences to his family.

If knew Lawrence, one things for sure, you never had to wonder how he felt about you.  He never bit his tongue and made no apologies.  Like of love it, take him or leave him.  I LOVED THAT ABOUT HIM!  He was a good man and loved to have a good-time.  I love you Lawrence, may you rest in peace.

The following is an excerpt from the Gumbeaux Magazine website concerning his untimely death:

He died today, May 13, 2013, after a long battle with liver disease. His family and staff will continue publishing Gumbeaux Magazine. To be a part of a special tribute issue, call (337) 513-0809. Feel free to leave your comments and condolences below.
