  1. Though we believe death is the pathway to a better life it is always difficult to say goodbye. Family, during this difficult hour be comforted by the knowledge that Bob loved you intensely, cared about your well being, and wanted the best for you.
    For more than ten years, and with few exceptions, Bob and I had lunch ever first Tuesday. Talk about the state of his family was about 50 percent of our conversation.
    His personal life was secondary to his family.
    Bob was truly one of God’s angels. He allowed himself to be used to do God’s will…caring for the needy and misfortune.
    I have never met you Shannon, but he talked about so much that I feel like I have. Amanda, nothing you could to make him stop loving you, and, he is confident you will have a good life. Joey, he was so proud of you. Austin, he was so proud of how you are developing. Melinda, he never stopped loving you and caring about your well being.
    Martha and I are thankful God put him in our paths. The world is a better place because Robert Earl Morgan, JR was here for a little while.

  2. Bob was a football fan too! Johnny loved the Ravens, and that is how I met the Morgan’s. Bob was a Cleveland Browns fan. He was so excited that they made the playoffs this year. I one of the last texts from Bob, he said, just root for the Bears now for Joey! He loved his children! They were the light in his eyes! His compassion for others, even total strangers was Christ like. Many times we wept for those in need during our prayers together. God bless, was his favorite way to end any conversation. Each time, you could see in his eyes. that he meant it. His contribution to humanity and the spread of the gospel now continues with his children, God bless you Joey, Amanda & Austin. Joyce & I love you.

  3. Bob was so generous to people he knew and to people he had never met. All he wanted to know was how he could help. He wanted God to have the glory, not Bob Morgan. I will miss him very much as will his family and our community. He and Johnny are together now. Our loss is Heaven’s gain. I am glad to have known Bob; and he will be missed.

  4. We were so blessed to cross paths with Mr. Bob two years ago when we became neighbors. He was the best neighbor we could ever ask for. He always spoke and we would all talk for hours. I always loved talking to Mr. Bob, he was so intelligent and easy to talk to. He sure loved his children and he loved my son Bryson too, always brought him gifts for every holiday, from candy on Valentines Day to toys at Christmas, he always showed he cared. Bryson will miss those slingshot rides and trips to DQ for blizzards as much as we will miss having Mr Bob for a neighbor. My very last text to him the evening before he passed was “praying for complete healing”, I have no doubt Mr. Bob is having a good ole time in Heaven with Johnny and now he is completely healed. He meant so much to us and we will miss him dearly. RIP Mr Bob, we love you. Jimmy, Becky and Bryson New.

  5. I will miss you so much my dear friend. You will always hold a special place in my heart as I will cherish your sweet spirit & memories! Until we meet again brother❤

  6. Bob was a wonderful man. He had a heart of gold and would do a thing he could to help anyone. He will be truly missed. Rest In Peace, my friend.
