Donald Gene Morgan “Don” “Grandpa”


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

September 2, 1934 to January 25, 2020

Don was the most caring, selfless, giving, hard-working, loving husband, stepfather, grandpa, and great-grandpa imaginable. He was called home on Saturday, January 25, 2020, to be reunited with his true love, Glenna Morgan, after fourteen years. Don married his childhood sweetheart and soul mate, Glenna Rogers on March 27, 1973. Their love was undeniable.

They built a successful trucking business, Four Seasons Trucking. Driving trucks was one of Don’s passions. After a long day, he loved to tell stories with all his trucker friends while enjoying a Budweiser around a campfire. Don had good friends in every town they worked at, all over the state of New Mexico.

In 1993, Don and his loving wife moved to their forever home in Roswell, New Mexico. He had his dream garage where he could fix anything and had two of every tool ever made. Don loved mowing his lawn, loved his pecan trees, recycling pop cans for the grandkids, and swinging on the front porch swing with Glenna. He loved playing Dominos and watching Vanna White on Wheel of Fortune. Don loved being a grandpa, and family was always his first priority. He loved Glenna, Jesus, football, and Johnny Cash. Probably in that order! Don always had a big smile for everyone knew or had just met.

In Don’s own words… “I’ll drink to that.” Cheers grandpa! We love you more! XOXO
