Born in Pittston, he was the son of the late John Patrick Morgan and Hazel Naugle Morgan. He attended Pittston Area Schools and worked as a mail carrier for the US Postal Service for many years until retirement.
He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and a true gentleman. He was a member of St Barbara’s Parish, Exeter. He was a youth baseball and football coach for many years, first in Pittston and then in Exeter. He had many fond memories of the athletes he coached and enjoyed following their accomplishments. He was an avid sports fan who especially enjoyed going to Beaver Stadium for Penn State football games and many memorable tailgates. He was also a fan of the Eagles, Phillies, Wyoming Area, and any team on which his grandchildren played. He enjoyed playing the game of golf with his sons and friends. He loved many years of family vacations to Ocean City, Maryland. Everyone was always welcome in his home, especially for holiday dinners and backyard cookouts. He loved his Sullivan Street friends who were like family to him.
