With deeply broken hearts, the Morgan family of Roanoke announces the passing from this life of their beloved brother, uncle, and faithful friend, Bobby Morgan, 71, a native and life-long resident of Roanoke. Mr. Morgan transitioned from this life on Tuesday, February 28, 2023, at his residence in Roanoke.
Born March 29, 1951, to the parentage of the late Wash Morgan, and Donnie Finley Morgan, Bobby was indeed a beautiful person with a kind heart and a giving spirit. As we bid him farewell, we honor him by remembering those attributes that made him such a beautiful human being.
As a youngster, he joined Bethel United Methodist Church where he faithfully attended and participated as long as good health permitted. Throughout life, Bobby enjoyed singing, playing guitar, and going to church at Bethel, where he served as an usher.
He received his early education at the Randolph County Training School, later attending the Randolph County Learning Center. Somewhere along life's journey, Bobby became quite a collector — accumulating dozens of shades and ink pens. Well-known in the community for his zeal for picking up cans and cleaning up the neighborhood, he was given the title "Mayor of East Roanoke." For many years, Bobby was affiliated with the Air and Electric Company in Roanoke. For him, this was his occupation.
A very beautiful person to be around, Bobby enjoyed giving people gifts and flowers. Of all that he engaged in, probably the one thing he enjoyed most was spending time with his family and friends. He was always quick to express his love with a look, with his heartwarming smile, or with a gentle hug.
After walking with the Lord for 71 years, 10 months and 29 days, Bobby left us to join hands with his mother, Donnie Finley Morgan; father, Wash Morgan; eight siblings including: brothers: George Morgan, Forrest Morgan, Raymond Morgan, Eddie Lee Morgan, Wash Morgan, Jr., Clifford Morgan; and sisters: Katie Whitlow and Annie Bell Sims. He reunited with the Ancestors on Tuesday, February 28, 2023 at his residence in Roanoke.
Clinging to precious memories of happy times gone but never forgotten — Bobby's family includes: his beloved sisters: Mary Baker and Sharon Morgan Phillips; brother, Johnny Frank Morgan all of Roanoke; three sisters-in-law: Dottie Ruth Morgan and Linda Morgan Stewart of Roanoke, and Emma Morgan of Chicago, IL; his special nieces and caregivers: Christino Phillips and Wendy Moss of Roanoke; and Teresa Pettway of Chicago. Bobby's special friends and extended family includes: His fictive kin (like a brother), David and Wanda Cummings and the Air and Electric family; Robin Hall and the Randolph County Learning Center Staff; Friends for the Learning Center: Mario Houston, Duon Noles, and Letittia Harrison; a host of nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
