Obituary of Douglas Lee Morgan

 

Douglas Lee Morgan

Of Man, WV

   Doug Morgan, 60, of Man went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, March 13, 2019, leaving from CAMC-Memorial Division, with all of his loving family around him, after a long fight with cancer.

   He was born on May 13, 1958, in Logan, the fifth of six children born to Ulbert “Ub” Morgan of Man and the late Helen Wolford Morgan.

   In addition to his mother, he was preceded in death by two older sisters, Carol Sue Morgan and Sandra Faye Morgan; his grandparents, Troy and Carrie Wolford and Wirt and Ethel Morgan; his brother-in-law, Jerry Plymale; along with several uncles and aunts.

   Doug was a devoted Christian and a member of the Big Spring Missionary Baptist Church where he served as a Trustee.  He was a proud coal miner for 25 years whose career started as a coal miner, and progressed through mine foreman, retiring as a mine superintendent in 2002.  He was a devoted son, husband, father, father-in-law, Papaw, and brother.  He loved his wife Janet, he said, “from the first time he laid eyes on her” and he always told her she was beautiful.  She stood right by his side through it all.  Doug and Janet enjoyed every minute while raising their son Shay. Their life was complete when Shay married Misty and brought four wonderful grandkids into their lives.  They traveled and always enjoyed family time.  Janet was so loving and she never gave up on him during this hard time.  He told her, “I want your face to be the last thing I see.”  That wish was fulfilled as she stood holding his hand til he was gone.

   Family was everything to Doug.  He has a special Uncle Don Morgan who took him to the Dairy Queen all the time.  Don calls him “DQ” to this day.  His cousin Tony Cline was his hero for as long as he could remember.  He loved his 4-wheeling time with his dad “Ub” and best friend Bob Kennedy, his big brother Kenny who was right there with him.  He could never have asked for a better brother, one who always had his back.  His sisters, Brenda Plymale and Lisa Sias were very special in his life.  Sue and Mike Cline will miss him on their back porch in the early morning drinking coffee.  He loved all his family and friends….there are just too many to mention.

   Those left to cherish his memory are his wife of 42 years, Janet; his son, Shay (Misty) Morgan that he was so proud of; his dad, Ulbert “Ub” Morgan of Man; sisters, Brenda Plymale of Landville, Lisa (Kenny) Sias of Midlothian, VA; brother, Kenny (Marlene) Morgan of Man; four grandchildren, Justin, Christian, Max, and Kinley Morgan, all who held his heart from the first sight.  Doug also has a family tree full of favorite aunts (you know who you are), nieces and nephews.  He landed in the crazy Caldwell family where he inherited three sisters-in-law who were a handful, Brenda (Gerald) Carter, Betty Jane (Harold) Willard, and Donna and Sue; two brothers-in-law, Dennis (Mary) Caldwell and Tyrone Caldwell who always loved him and called him brother; and his friend Beth who loved him dearly, along with a host of other relatives and friends.

   Funeral services will be held at 1:00 p.m. Sunday, March 17, 2019, at the Big Spring Missionary Baptist Church with Rev. Perry Brown and Rev. Robert Morris officiating. Honoring Doug's request, his remains will be cremated after the services.

   Visitation will be held from 6-9 p.m.  Saturday at the Krantz-McNeely Funeral Home at Man and one hour prior to services at the church also.

   Pallbearers will be family and friends.

   Honorary pallbearers will be Donald Hale, Jack McDaniels III, and Eric Mullins.

   Online condolences may be sent to www.krantzmcneelyfuneralhome.com

   Arrangements have been entrusted to the care of the Krantz-McNeely Funeral Home at Man.
