     Following his high school years,  he enlisted in the US Army and proudly served his country in the Korean War.  He was discharged in 1952 and became a loyal and dedicated employee of  Newport News Shipbuilding. He began working as a welder but retired in 1991 as General Foreman after 39 years of service.  While there he made many lifelong friends.

So sorry for your loss. It was a pleasure meeting Mr. & Mrs. Morgan at Mountainside. At least he is resting in his new home with no more pain and suffering. My prayers to the family.
