In Memory of
Raymond Earl Morgan

Raymond Earl Morgan was born January 4, 1945, to Mary Frances and Gilbert M. Morgan in El Campo, TX.
He grew up with an older sister Jean in Palacios, riding his bike, accompanied by his dog, all over town, going on adventures with his best friend on the bay. 

He attended Palacios schools graduating from Palacios High School in 1964--a proud Shark, he played football, basketball, and went to the State Track and Field Meet in shot putt his senior year. He loved his classmates and kept up many of those friendships until today.

He received an associate degree from Wharton County Junior College in 1966, his Bachelor of Arts in 1969 from The University of Corpus Christi, and Master of Science in 1982 from The University of Houston-Clear Lake.
He taught in Tuloso-Midway, Blooming Grove, Grapeland and Pearland coaching football and track while teaching biology. While in Pearland he became an assistant principal at the junior high.  After a few years he became an assistant principal at Kempner High in Sugarland with a wonderful team. In 1998 he came to Waltrip High School in Houston Independent School District as Principal and built his own strong team.  He retired in 2010--for a few years and then did substitute teaching at Wainwright Elementary where he found a new love working mainly with Special Ed.

He was predeceased by his parents, sister and infant brother.

Survived by his wife of almost 57 years Lynn Meyer Morgan and their son Michael David Morgan as well as bonus son and daughter Terry and Celise Smith and their son Zachary and baby coming in the winter. Also, inlaws Henry and Kathy Meyer Breitkreutz and Kenneth and Betty Meyer. Nephews John and Judy and Joseph and Claire Vernon, Dr. Wesley Meyer and Dr. Clark Meyer and his wife Dr. Heather Hayenga. Nieces Carolyn Lankford, Tracy Breutkreutz, Robin Glass, Jana Stuckey and Irene Meyer Upson. There are many grand nieces and nephews as well.

He had a lot of loves: teaching both school and Sunday School, wood working, yard work, travel, smoking fantastic brisket, playing 42, Sudoku, reading Lee Child or John Grisham, reading his Bible, watching old cowboy shows, walking in the neighborhood, his purple martins and Monarch butterflies.

 It's so hard to sum up a life. He believed in Jesus Christ his Savior from age 9. He believed in serving others. He loved with his whole heart. If he said he'd pray for you- he did. He was strong in mind, body, and spirit. He NEVER gave up.

A Celebration of Life was held on August 31, 2023 at Heights Church.
