Morgan Brian Gaughan, 42, passed away on November 1, 2012, while on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, visiting his Aunt Ellie and cousin Heather.

Morgan's passion for adventure and his love for his family were truly inspiring.

He traveled the world and enjoyed other cultures and people. He spent most of his youth divided between Sequim with his mother, Martha Collins, and stepfather, Richard Schneider; and Michigan with his father, Jack, stepmother, Joan, and sister, Allison — all of whom he adored.

A graduate from the University of Washington in international studies and economics, he lived a decade in Hong Kong before going to New York City.

Always a generous and loving man, he was happy to help in any way he could. Even in difficult times, Morgan's optimism never diminished. He truly believed that the future would only bring brighter days and that the past had been a lot of fun.

Many of the good times — the best times — were because of him. His laughter and smile always lit up a room and made everyone feel comfortable.

He enjoyed sun and sand, wind and water, and scuba diving.

Sadly, his life ended prematurely. Even so, his generosity lives on, and we pray that his last gifts will help others in their time of need, as he had helped so many before.

Rest in peace, Morgan.
