Robert Gilmore McMorrow, of Naples, Florida and Annapolis, Maryland, passed away on January 19, 2019 one day after his 89th birthday. He was born on January 18, 1930, in Washington, D.C. to Hugh and Nana Gilmore McMorrow. Bob is survived by his wife of 62 years, Carole McMorrow, and his five children, Robert (Mary Ellen), Roger (Maggie), Ronald (Louisa), Raymond, and Janice (Jeff) Sinn, and his four grandchildren, Ronald and Katherine McMorrow, and Chloe and Nathaniel Sinn.
Bob graduated from Georgetown University Law School in 1957 and practiced patent and trademark law in his father's law firm and as a solo practitioner. In 1968, he joined the law firm of Sughrue Rothwell Mion Zinn MacPeak & Seas in Washington, D.C., and continued his law practice after his move to Naples, Florida in 1995. During his long professional career, he became noted as an authority on trademark law.
Bob was an avid boater and fisherman and was known by many as "the Captain". He traveled around the world with friends and family to fishing destinations such as Christmas Island, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Wachapreague, Virginia, and Stuart, Florida. Bob was happiest with a fishing rod in his hand while enjoying the warm sunshine. His children and grandchildren have many fond memories of their visits to Florida, full of boat rides, fishing, and dining at his favorite restaurants.
Bob will be missed by all who knew him.
