Correl was born December 2nd 1935 to Harrison and Pauline (Carriker) Morris in Hardtner, Kansas. He completed school through 8th grade before starting work with his father farming. Later Correl lived in several different towns including Hardtner, Enid, Wichita, Kansas City, Oklahoma City, Pawhuska, Lawton and Wynona. While living in these towns, he worked hard at various jobs such as building cabinets, flooring, carpenter work along with hotel and laundry mat maintenance and limo and school bus driving. He also spent several years driving bobtail trucks hauling oil and saltwater.

Correl loved laughter, playing jokes on his sisters and friends. He always had toys for his kids and grandkids to play with and enjoy. He also enjoyed square dancing with friends. Horses were a passion of Correl’s. He was especially fond of the more stubborn ones, taking extra time and care to break them. He also enjoyed traveling with his sister.

While living in Wichita, Kansas, he met Jean Moore. They were joined together in marriage September 1st 1961 there in Wichita, Kansas. Out of this union came five wonderful children, Corrella, Brenda, Edia, Jason and Charles. The children were the light of his life. He taught his children that Christ comes first, family is important, to always work hard and that education is key.
