MORGAN RoyPosted: March 9th, 2013
February 1, 1948 – March 3, 2013
Roy Allen Morgan was born February 1, 1948 and died March 3, 2013. Roy had a great life! Dedicated friend, husband, and soul mate of Dawn Morgan for forty-four years, Roy passed away last Sunday at his home. Those fortunate enough to have known Roy will share in the grief and sadness of his daughters, Jacqueline, Kristine and Bernadette Morgan; and sons-in-law Dieter Hart and Steve Pekarthy. After living his life with his “enduring love”, battling through the ravages of her cancer as her caregiver for ten years and deeply mourning her passing these past three years, Roy is finally back where he longed to be ~ at Dawn’s side, in Heaven. In a letter from Dawn, she reminded us that Roy loved three things: God, his family and friends, and his country. Roy cherished his children, and took great joy in nurturing his four grandchildren, Rhiannon, Liam, Ulrich, and Odin. Roy always felt privileged by the joy of having a large extended family and his long and lasting friendships. He welcomed all with generosity and a warm friendly smile few could match. We who had the privilege of knowing Roy were fortunate. Each of us touched, each loved, each aided, each enriched by his positive attitude, strength, and the wealth of fatherly advice he was willing to share. As saddened as we are all with his passing, we who benefited and loved him so much know he will always be present in us.
