Obituary

Daniel O. Morgan, aged 75, received his wish and passed away at home after a courageous battle with Lewy-Body Dementia. He was surrounded by family and pets; including his wife of 54 years Rita. In addition, Dan is survived by his son Mike of Allendale, Michigan, his son Ron (Razel) of Wyoming, Michigan, son Lee of Kalamazoo, Michigan, and brother Stan of New Philadelphia, Ohio. In addition, Dan is survived by four Grandchildren; Robert (Carle), Elizabeth, Brady, and Rita.
Dan grew up all over the United States with his roots finally being cemented in Lansing, Michigan and graduated at J.W. Sexton High School in 1962. Upon graduation Dan made a life-long decision to become a public servant and joined the United States Army. He served for more than 20 years all over the world, (meeting his wife Rita in Germany) including two tours in Vietnam. Upon an honorable retirement, Dan received a bachelor’s degree in business from Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, Michigan and went to work for Newaygo County. Within a couple of years, he pursued and attained a master’s degree in psychology from Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan and went on to work for The Department of Corrections for more than two decades.
Dan’s biggest love was sports. In high school he played trumpet in the marching band, football, and had a stellar amateur baseball career. During his adult life umpiring baseball at the highest amateur level and refereeing high school basketball was a passion of his for over three decades. Later in life, Dan held season tickets to Western Michigan University basketball and football over 25 years and attended minor league baseball all over the country. He passionately supported local sports….from the Grand Rapids Owls to the Grand Rapids Drive. His favorite teams included the Detroit Tigers, West Michigan Whitecaps, and the Grand Rapids Griffins. His other hobbies included motorcycling, writing, and being a handyman.
Dan was a loving and devoted family man and over four-decade resident of Wyoming, Michigan. He was always there for his family, friends, and others who needed help. Dan requested to be cremated and have some of his ashes spread in places he adored. He would be honored, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to a worthy charity.
