REVEREND PAUL DANIELSON (1938-2016) The Rev. Paul Everett Danielson, Jr., father of John Danielson ’87 and Mark Danielson ’88, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on March 1, 2016, weeks after a diagnosis of cancer. A resident of the Monterey Bay area for nearly 50 years, Paul devoted his life to serving others and to exploring and protecting the Monterey environment, including serving York School as a part-time chaplain. Ordained as an Episcopal deacon in 1964 and a priest in 1965, Paul’s pastoral career took him all across the U.S. Paul loved sports, music, hiking, camping, traveling, reading, and exploring. He was always inquisitive; he loved learning and challenging his mind. Known as “Father Paul” to hundreds in the Monterey Bay area, Paul had a unique ability to form meaningful personal connections.
ARCHBISHOP ROBERT MORSE (1924-2015) Surrounded by family, Robert Sherwood Morse, the retired Archbishop of the Anglican Province of Christ The King and co-founder of York School, died peacefully in his Berkeley home on May 28, 2015. In his 64 years as a priest and bishop, Archbishop Morse created college ministries at Stanford and the University of California at Berkeley, and established many churches in the Bay Area, including St. Stephen’s in Yountville, St. Thomas’s Church in San Francisco, and St. Ann Chapel in Palo Alto. In addition to co-founding York in 1959, he also served as Assistant Headmaster until 1965. The Archbishop’s love for God would be translated into a medley of friendship with non-believers, seekers, the lonely, and the unloved. His parting words with a new or old friend were nearly always, “All is Grace."
