Robert Dempsey Morgan, 82, loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather left us to continue on his new journey in heaven June 8, 2017. Robert “Bob”, son of the late Worth Herbert Morgan Sr. and Cleo Ruth Dempsey was born in Edgemoor, South Carolina and spent much of his life in Winder, Georgia and Plantation, Florida. Bob served in the USMC (1953-1957) and worked at Ryder System for over 40 years.
He retired in 1996 and left south Florida in 2004 to relocate for a peaceful retirement at River Landing at Sandy Ridge in Colfax, NC. There he made many friends and memories.
Bob will be remembered as a loving husband, a hardworking man, a wonderful cook, having a great sense of humor, a father determined to raise and educate his children and “a good looking granddaddy”.
He is preceded in death by his parents, his brother Worth Herbert Morgan Jr, his stepmother Evelyn Herrin Morgan and his daughter Lori Amelia Morgan.
Left to treasure his memory are his wife of over 60 years Patricia Joyce Morgan, his children Laura Kimberly Morgan of Mississippi, Lisa Kathryn Dean (Ralph) and Leslie Karen Sylvester (Shawn) of North Carolina and Clifford Worth Morgan (Irene) of Nebraska. He is also survived by his sister, Mary Gay McKinney of Illinois, sister-in-law, Carol Glass of Georgia, 14 grandchildren, 8 great grandchildren, and his nieces, nephews and friends.
