Jeffrey Todd Morhaus

October 17, 1963 — January 6, 2023

Jeffrey Todd Morhaus passed on January 6, 2023, at his home.

Jeff was the beloved son of Opal and Paul Payne, born on October 17, 1963, in Washington, Mo. Jeff spent most of his younger life in Brookfield, Mo., where he played football, basketball and ran track. Many of his closest friends were his teammates and classmates from high school. Following high school, Jeff attended William Jewell College and was a member of the NAIA championship runner up football team. He and many of his Jewell teammates traveled to Finland and Germany the summer of 1984 to play exhibition games in various cities.

Jeff subsequently began his career in Operations and Logistics Management, having worked with JC Penney, Hallmark Cards, FedEx and Home Depot. He also was an entrepreneur and owner of the Liberty Dairy Queen.

The lights of Jeff’s life were his daughters, MaKenzie Morhaus and Madison Morhaus Hinkley. Anyone who knew Jeff immediately saw and heard of his love for MaKenzie and Madison. Jeff was one of the original “girl dads”. He was extraordinarily involved in every aspect of the girls’ care from the moment he became a dad. The result is that he and the girls created many fun and lasting memories together. Jeff prided himself in never taking anything too seriously and being the entertainment at most any gathering. Jeff will be remembered for his quick wit, his love for his girls, and love for his dogs.

Jeff is survived by his daughters, MaKenzie (fiancé Ben Haskett), Madison (Ryan Hinkley) and the girls’ mother, Dawn.

A celebration of life and remembrance will be held on Saturday, January 14 at 2 pm with a visitation to follow until 4 pm, at Park Lawn Northland Chapel, I-35 at State Route 291, Liberty, Mo. In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests donations to Wounded Warrior Project as Jeff personally supported this particular program.
