Robert "Bob" Morgan Obituary
Robert Bob Morgan passed through death into new life on January 24, 2016, in Amarillo, TX. The love of his life and his bride of 50 years, Sandy was at his side.
Bob was born December 7, 1944, in New Carlisle, IN, and married Sandra Lyon, on July 17, 1965, in Colorado Springs, CO.. Bob was a graduate of Air Academy HS in 1962 and employed in the construction arts at an early age. After numerous successful business partnerships, Bob worked with friends to develop Cabinet Covers Inc., a business he ran for 20 years.
He retired to Tucumcari in 2006. Bob was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed boating, hunting, fishing, hiking, and exploring God's handiwork. He was a preacher of the word by nature and served as a deacon in both Ellicott, CO, and First Baptist Church in Tucumcari, NM.
In his final years, Bob committed himself to service as a Spiritual Support Line team member, encouraging callers with information, life lessons, and the freeing message of salvation in Christ. His church, family, friends, and his dogs where high priorities as well as his love of gospel music. Bob and Sandy are especially proud of their son, Matt, who despite severe hearing impairment works as a journeyman meat cutter and successfully runs a tool and knife sharpening business.
Bob is survived by his wife, Sandy and their son Mathew Morgan; his sister, Mary L. Decker; and brothers and sister in-laws, Lin Opgenorth (Lloyd), Michael Lyon (Julie), Jeffery Lyon (Terri), Steven Lyon (Melanie); and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his father, Robert NC Morgan; his mother, Grace L. Morgan; and his brother, Jonathan R. Morgan.
A Service of Remembrance will be held at 2 o'clock in the afternoon on February 6, 2016, at First Baptist Church of Tucumcari located at 321 E. Center St. with a fellowship meal following. All are welcome.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the First Baptist Church building fund or the Baptist Children's Home in Portales.
