Douglas Robert Morgan
July 3, 2017
|Douglas Robert Morgan entered into an eternal life of peace on July 3, 2017, at the age of 57 while at home in the Green Ridge section of Scranton.
Doug was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania, on August 5, 1959, to William Robert and Barbara Morgan. He attended the Scranton Preparatory School, graduated from the University of Scranton with a BA in Communications and then obtained an MBA in Marketing from University of Maryland. He eventually settled in Burtonsville, Maryland, where worked to support his two daughters and son, who were the most important part of his life. While his career spent with companies such as Lockheed Martin, BAE Systems and Pelco was important to him, Doug’s first passion was his family and the simple things in life. He was a devoted father who preferred to be at home with his children or watching them perform in their many activities, including a gymnastics match, a dance recital, a swim meet.
Doug had a way with words and a knack for performing. In his early years, he could be found on stage acting in plays or singing in musicals. He was captivating as both a performer and public speaker, and his creativity was endless. His passion for performance and his smooth baritone voice led to his acceptance into the Washington Opera and volunteer work with Ballet Theater of Scranton, both on stage and behind the scenes.
To those of us that were fortunate to have known him or spoken to him, it was evident that Doug was a kind soul that would go out of his way to help others. He was genuine, gentle, caring and compassionate, and he enjoyed talking and listening to others. He will be deeply missed by his friends, family and all who knew him.
Doug is survived by his parents, W. Robert and Barbara (Scranton); his children, Matthew (Maryland), Rachel (California) and Sara (Maryland); his brothers, Bradley (Scranton), Christian, sister-in-law, Sheri; and three nieces, Madison, Cailee and Ashlyn (Pittsburgh).
Funeral service is scheduled for:
