I knew David through my sister, and we even visited him when he lived in NYC area. During the whole time I knew of David and the times I actually was in his presence, I found him to be kind and with that sense of humour that can make one laugh out loud. I was always impressed by his grasp of knowledge and his zest for knowing our world. David, you will be missed. I know many of your friends are missing you now and my heart goes out to your family.

My condolences to Davids family. May the Lord give you comfort.

David taught me many things during the few times I was privileged to be in his company. He was so gracious to me and kind, so filled with good humor and wit. Of the many things he taught me, this expression is lodged in my mind and heart, and I think of him each time I use it: tibi omnia quae bona, "May you enjoy all that is good." I pray the same for his family now. O eruditissime Latinae et amicitiae quae nos fovent amator, in pace iam requiescas et diem in ultimum spe beata resurgaris.

David and I grew up on the same street, took classes together all throughout grade school, junior high, and senior high school. We even both majored in French, although I didn't go the extra mile that he did! I am so glad to have called him friend, even though we haven't seen each other in decades. Heaven is a brighter, smarter place now. Adieu, mon ami!

As a student at Furman, I had the great fortune of traveling to France with Dr. Morgan in 2003. His zest for travel, culture, and language were contagious. To this day, I can still see him--our fearless leader--nearly bouncing through the streets of Paris, filling our minds with historical details and gifting us with vocabulary and cultural competence.

Dr. Morgan's patience, humility, intelligence, and compassion left quite an impression on me and countless other students.

In a phone conversation while he was hospitalized, Dr. Morgan described to me the great blessings he had received since becoming ill. He spoke of dear friendships and of all that he had learned to appreciate.

I have never met someone like Dr. Morgan, and I will always cherish the lessons he taught--in the classroom and through his honest, sincere, and joyful living.

Repose en paix, notre cher ami,

Lindsay

David was a neighbor and friend of mine in junior and senior high schools, and though unfortunately we had lost touch throughout the years, I will always hold the most fond memories of him. Though obviously brilliant, David had a tremendous sense of humor that we mere mortals could understand and love. Heaven just got a lot smarter and funnier. Morgan family, you are in our thoughts and prayers.

I will always remember David's intelligence, generosity, and kindness. I first met him during a full-immersion Latin experience in Lexington, KY, and thereafter had the pleasure of crossing paths with him in Hungary, and most recently in Charles Town, WV, where he was an integral part of Rusticatio, a summer Latin workshop. David's erudition was immense but his presence kind, soft, humble, and unintimidating. I didn't know him that well, but when I was talking to him, he made me feel like there was nowhere in the world he would rather be than right there at that moment, engaged in that conversation. It's rare to feel someone so intensely in the present with you. David seemed to make everyone feel that way, which is a true testament to his humanitas.

David, I enjoyed our Swedish conversations.
Hej då vän.

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.
