Earl Morgan, 1930-2019

Another beloved person from my childhood is gone home to be with Jesus: Earl Morgan passed away April 16, 2019, in Crescent City, California at the age of 88. He was born June 11, 1930, in Sylva, North Carolina.

After serving in the U.S. Army, Earl went to work for the U.S. Postal Service and was Klamath’s postmaster during the 1964 Tsunami as well as the Christmas flood later that year. One of my favorite pictures of Earl is one where he’s handing Margaret Keating her mail following the tsunami at the temporary office he established at Camp Marigold.

He married his wife Alice on July 1, 1948, moving to Klamath in 1952 and then Crescent City in 2014. He was an active member of the First Baptist Church of Crescent City, volunteering and ministering at the Crescent City Nursing and Rehab Center.

Earl is survived by son, Jefferson, and wife, Sharae, and preceded in death by his wife, Alice in 2017.
