Christopher Brian Morgan, 45, died suddenly of a heart attack while setting up his drums for a show at Four Corners in Palmer, Alaska, on June 26, 2015. Chris was born in Bethel, Alaska, on March 12, 1970. A talented drummer and guitar player, "Catfish" Morgan will be remembered for his creativity, his wit and his kind soul. Chris was a graduate of the Musicians Institute, a member of the Kiss Army, an established Anchorage Foodie and self-taught computer guru. A member of countless bands over the years, including The Funky Eskimos, Pump, Northern Distortion and most recently Breed, Chris could play any instrument, any style of music and any song. His talent on the drums made him the pounding heart of any band. He'll be remembered by many as the first Eskimo Rockstar. Survived by his parents, Joli and Ina Morgan, and his brother, Kevin, Chris joins his grandparents, George and Martha Keene, Claudine Branch and George Bryan Morgan. There will be a viewing at Janssen's Evergreen Memorial Chapel, 737 E Street in Anchorage, Alaska, on Wednesday, July 1, 2015, from 10 a.m. to noon.

Arrangements are with Janssen's Evergreen Memorial Chapel.
