Glen Rose - Curtis F. Morgan, 92, left this earth to be with the Lord on April 4, 2021 in Glen Rose, TX. He was a beloved husband, father, brother, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend.

A visitation will be held on Thursday, April 8, 2021 from 6pm to 8pm at Wiley Funeral Home in Glen Rose, Texas.

He was a man of his word, hard worker and lived life to the fullest. His faith in the Lord never wavered, he truly never met a stranger and often enjoyed sharing stories of his time served in the Army, working on the pipeline and all his travels around the world.

He was born on August 17, 1928 in Bromide, OK to Luntsford and Ruby Morgan.

Curtis served in the United States Army for eleven years, serving in Korea, two tours in Japan during the occupation and one tour in Panama, as well as stationed throughout the United States. He met his wife, LaJane, at Bromide Baptist Church while he was home on military leave. They traveled to many states across the U.S. and married in 1955 and eventually moved to Texas to build their life. Curtis worked as a pipeliner in Pipeliner Local Union 798 across the United States for 50+ years. Curtis thoroughly loved sharing his adventures in his later years of his travels around the world while in the military and on the pipeline.

They had three children, Scott, Kevin and Sue.

He was a member of Georges Creek Baptist Church. Curtis and LaJane Morgan actively cared for Georges Creek Cemetery. Curtis enjoyed frequenting flea markets, bargaining and most recently making saddle racks and boot jacks.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Luntsford and Rubeye Morgan; his in-laws, Slim and Ruth Tillmon; infant daughter, who died at birth, Karen Morgan; and grandson, Cody Morgan.

Survivors are his sister, Judy and Don Hall of Tishomingo, Oklahoma; his son, Scott Morgan and Angie Hall, his son, Kevin Morgan and Julie Whalen and his daughter, Sue and her husband, Dale Sparks, four grandchildren and seven great grandchildren and numerous extended families.
