John Charles Morgan, passed away peacefully at 9:25 PM on October 31, 2018, at the age of 34 surrounded by family and friends. Born on February 18, 1984 in Drumheller, John held residence throughout his life in Rosedale, Drumheller, Munson, and attended school in both Morrin and Drumheller. John had deep roots in all of these communities. John was a hard-working business owner for several years, and a man with many talents, hobbies, and he had a brilliant mind for inventions. In his youth, he loved sea cadets and sailing, and was a very bright and curious boy. Known by all as an ever helpful friend and caring family member, he offered incredible support to anyone in need without hesitation. John adored his family, notably the children, as well as his beloved dogs, Pork and Beans. He had a reputation as “the best gift giver” as he always knew the perfect present for the occasion. John is survived by his loving mother Sandra Jones (John Russell) of Drumheller, his brother and best friend Justin Morgan of Drumheller, his dear nephews Jack Morgan and Carson Montgomery of Drumheller, his step-brother John Russell Jr. of Edmonton, grandparents Ray and Darlene Raketti of Drumheller, as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. He is predeceased by influential family members – his father, Jackie Morgan, and his great grandmother, Marion Zern.
