Graveside Service and burial will be Saturday, February 2nd at 11:00 a.m. in De Leon Cemetery in De Leon, Texas. He is survived by his wife, Elisabeth "Kay" Morgan of Plano; daughters and their families, Amy, Joe, Joey, and Jackson Green of North Haledon, NJ, Katie, Paul Michael, Bailey, Nathan, and William Vacca of Fort Worth and Ali Morgan of Dallas; three brothers and their families, Jerry and Sheri Morgan of De Leon, James and Patrice Morgan of De Leon, and Rick Morgan of Plano; and two brothers-in-law and their families, Jim and Patsy Harelik of Cross Plains and Max Harelik of Comanche, Texas. Bill was born on September 8, 1949 in Gorman Texas at Blackwell Sanatorium and grew up in De Leon, TX graduating from De Leon High School where he was proud to say he was "all city" in baseball, football, and basketball. Bill was Class President, active in the FFA, and helped around his father's farm. Bill attended the University of Texas where he enjoyed watching the Longhorns play football and he found his true calling as an accountant. Bill graduated in 1972 with a Masters in Business Administration then started his career at Arthur Young and Co. Bill met Kay in 1972 at the marriage of his good friend and brother of Kay, Jim Harelik. Bill and Kay were married in 1973 in Comanche, Texas. They lived in Dallas, New York, and London before settling in Dallas. Bill and Kay enjoyed a rich family life raising 3 daughters and countless pets. They were active in church at Audelia Road Baptist Church for over 20 years then later at First Baptist Dallas. Bill taught Sunday School for several years, was a Deacon, Chairman of the Deacons, and Director of his Sunday School class. Bill's philosophy was to always extend a hand to those in need if you can - and you always can. Church was not something done only on Sundays, but a way of life - a philosophy of putting others before yourself and giving of what God had blessed you with. Bill started a firm with Gary Huselton in 1978 creating his second family at the firm, Huselton, Morgan and Maultsby. By 2012 when he retired, the firm had grown to over 60 people and provided over 34 years of doing what he loved. Many of Bill's colleagues, employees, friends, and clients will forever enjoy his unique sense of humor, wit and wisdom. Some of our favorite Bill Morgan-isms are "You can be happy or you can be sad, but it's more fun to be happy", "Nothing hard is ever easy", "Part of a gusher is better than all of a dry hole" and his usual parting "I am a legend in my own mind". Bill not only was a legend in his own mind but also in the hearts of so many family and friends who loved him. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
