He was born on November 4, 1958 to Delbert Morgan and the late Sarah Haynes Morgan of Second Creek, W.Va.

He loved to work on his tractors and attend antique tractor shows, especially a show held in Plain City, Ohio, where he got to spend time with family as well.

Those left to cherish his memory include his wife of 29 years, Sonja; son, Charlie Morgan (Stephanie Bailey); father, Delbert Morgan; sister, Cheryl Bowman (Tom); brother, Stephen Morgan (Diana); many special family members; and special fur babies, Henry and Maggie.
