Dr David Morgan was a man of good character. He was quite knowledgeable and loved to impart whatever he knew. He was a passionate and inspiring teacher AND person. He was a gentle soul: he was always encouraging and understanding as well. Indeed he will be missed but we, who have been so greatly impacted by him, ought to continue his legacy by emulating his outstanding qualities.

I met David when I was 10 years old and he's always been in my heart. There's a vacuum in the universe where he lived and I am sad at the loss of someone who was a great friend for so many years, so many years ago. David, I hope you have a pet aardvark in heaven!

I met David in KY and was struck then by his vast knowledge, his kindness to others and his great enthusiasm for teaching and for the Latin language. Since that time, he has helped me and others with spoken Latin on a number of occasions, and he volunteered his time for my own students at a magical day on the Furman campus. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Quamvis defuerit mihi voluptas Davidem his in terris conveniendi, honestas eius necnon quantum ipse contulerit in Latinam Linguam fovendam haud ignota sunt mihi. Qua de causa facere non possum quin summo dolore lacrimas effundam de maturo decessu eius. Eadem quae parentes, frater atque tota eius familia, necnon omnes amici amicaeque graviter sentiunt, me consentire profiteor. Requiescat in pace.

Although I never had the pleasure of meeting David, I knew of his outstanding reputation as an ardent and tireless promoter of Living Latin. As a papal Latinist, not a day goes by when I don't avail myself of his invaluable Latin dictionary. I express my heartfelt sympathy to his family and friends, and I assure them of my prayers in Rome.

David was a highly gifted student, yet modest and unassuming. His doctoral thesis was first-rate, an unusual study for which he was uniquely prepared by his previous legal training. Notable Eastern and Midwestern universities vied for his services after he got his Ph.D. and he did spend a couple of years at one of them. But it is characteristic of the fine and sensitive human being he was that he chose to return to the part of the country in which he was raised in order to give back something of what he had received from it. I was his thesis director. I remember him with great fondness and great respect. His passing, at such a young age, has deeply saddened all those of us who knew him in the Princeton department of Romance Languages.
