Born in Bow on April 27, 1926, to Ernest W. and Lottie (Tittemore) Morgan, he grew up in Bow and attended Concord High School. At the age of 17 he left school and joined the Navy.
As a World War II veteran, he served in the U.S. Navy Seabees in the Pacific theatre.
For his life's work, he decided to help others by becoming an educator. He attended Tilton Prep School and Keene State College where he earned his teaching degree. He was employed by the government, teaching at United States airbases in Europe and Japan for six years, where he made lifelong friends.
He taught briefly in Connecticut and Manchester, and retired from teaching from the Bow school system after 20 years there.
He was a member of the Grange, the Odd Fellows, and the National Education Association.
Greatly interested in genealogy and Bow history, Bob served on the Bow Heritage Commission and contributed personal family history information and articles.
Playing cribbage, ping pong, horseshoes, and motorcycling with his nephew, Brian and good friend, Craig were popular past times.
Special thanks to his friend David Laroche, who gave willingly of his time to help Bob in various ways.
He was predeceased by his sisters, Phyllis and Gloria; and a brother, Ernest.
