Crawfordville - Nicholas Alexander Carson (Nick) 26 of Crawfordville, FL. Passed away Sunday, April 29, 2018 in Tallahassee, FL from injuries sustained in a car accident. He was born in Huntington, WV on March 23, 1992. The son of Joe and Debi Morgan of Crawfordville, FL.

Nick was a 2010 graduate of Wakulla High School. After high school Nick joined the U.S. Army and graduated basic training and airborne school in Fort Benning, GA. He was then assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division in Fort Bragg, NC. In February 2012 he deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. He currently was assigned to Bravo Company, 1st Battalion, 507th PIR, Airborne and Ranger Training Brigade at Fort Benning, GA as a Basic Airborne Instructor. During his military career the many awards and schools he completed were: Overseas Service Ribbon, NATO Medal, 5- Army Achievement Medals, 2 Army Good Conduct Medals, National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Medal, Army Service Ribbon, Combat Infantry Badge, Expert Infantry Badge, Parachutist Badge, Air Assault Badge, Jumpmaster School, Repel Masters Course, Basic Leader Course, Combatives Level 1 and 2, and Airborne School.

Although he received many awards throughout his military career, his greatest achievement was his son Jackson Alexander Carson.

His legacy will live on in Jackson.

Nick touched many lives and leaves behind many friends and battle buddies that will always feel his presence.

I am saddened to hear about the unexpected loss of your loved one. The sting of death brings grief that is difficult to bear. May prayers to the God of all comfort strengthen you. He promises, I have heard your prayer. I have seen your tears. I am healing you. (2 Kings 20:5)

Gone too soon but never forgotten. Our loving Creator keeps those who passed on, in his memory because they are precious to him. (Psalm 116:15)

Joe Morgan and Family:

I only found out today about your loss of your son!
I am so sorry for such a terrible loss as this!
Let me share a poem with you I wrote for another who recently suffered a terrible unexpected loss.
I hope it will bring some comfort to you and your family.


Sometimes life is good, sometimes life is bad!
Sometimes it makes us happy and sometimes it make us sad!

Sometimes life lets us soar like an Eagle up high!
Sometimes life brings us crashing down and makes us cry!

Life is full of trouble and things beyond our control!
Life is a trial and a test of the soul!

I'm reminded of a young man at my local church as I write this rhyme!
He had gotten married, was blessed with three children and life was great and going fine!

One Sunday our Pastor called this couple to the front to honor them for their good deeds!
But just a few days later, life brought this poor husband to his knees!

His precious wife died from a stroke followed by complications unknown!
Now he has "three" young toddlers to raise all alone!

Lord, reach down from Heaven and gently hold this precious man up!
As he drinks from one of life's BITTER CUPS!

The reason we suffer in life goes back to Genesis and to Adam and Eve!
When the Serpent/Satan lied and deceived!

When life hits you hard and does you wrong!
"Lean on God" and He will give you a Victory Song!
