David Dave Morgan


SAN ANGELO - David ""Dave"" Morgan began an unexpected journey on February 7th when his heart stopped, his wings spread, and we said goodbye.

David Morgan was born on February 21, 1954 to parents, Joseph and Edith Morgan. He was preceded in death by his father Joseph Morgan.

Those gathering to celebrate his life are his mother Edith Morgan Smith, and stepfather Paul Smith (Del Rio, Texas) his wife Janice Kay Sorrells Morgan. In-Laws Kenneth and Maxine Sorrells (Rocksprings) and Sister, Susan Morgan and husband Larry Terry (Vermont) Sister Laura and husband Mark Muraro (Taylorville, Ill.) stepbrother Greg and wife Liz Smith (California), stepsister Leesa Papier (Washington D.C.), brother-in-law Kenneth Sorrells Jr. and wife Lisa Sorrells (Boerne), brother-in-law Steve Sorrells and wife Danette Sorrells (Seagoville), son Michael Morgan (Huntsville), daughters Melissa Neuman (Del Rio), Tonya Barnet (Trinity) and Devin Dunn (San Angelo), son-in-laws Chad Neuman, Ronnie Barnett, and Mathew Dunn. Loving grandchildren Gavin and Eian Neuman, Mason Morgan, Morgan and KateLynn Mears, Sarah James, Ronnie Barnett Jr., and Allison Dunn. Niece Jessica Padgett and husband Josh, and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and friends.

David graduated from Del Rio High School. He developed a fond love of travel as his family moved across the country and abroad to Japan as his father responded to the call of duty for his country during David's childhood. This sparked his desire to follow in his father's footsteps and serve his country in The United States Air Force as a Sergeant. David worked for Verizon for more than thirty years, he then followed his hobby of guns and ammunition as owner of Terminal Ballistics, and Co-Owner of Partner's Satellite.

His most cherished jobs were being a father, husband, and ""Papa"" to his grandchildren. He will always be remembered as the man that hung the moon and stars for his loved ones, and now he has joined the stars to shine bright for all.

A funeral service will be held at 2:00 P.M. Tuesday February 11, 2014 at First United Methodist Church of San Angelo with burial to follow at Rocksprings Cemetery.

The family would like to thank the first responders, paramedics, and Tom Green County Sherriff's Office for their quick response and care during this difficult time.
