He was born Oct. 1, 1918, in Van Wert County, Ohio, the son of Joseph T. and Anna May (Hughes) Morgan. He moved in 1922 to Big Rapids, Mich., where he graduated from high school in 1937. He moved to this area in 1950.
George was active in his community. He was a member of Hope United Methodist Church, having been Sunday school superintendent, and he served on several church boards.

One outstanding thing — George was a devoted father who lived his family, his church and his country.
