September 8, 1925 ~ August 12, 2012
Paul A. Morgan of Tucker, passed away on August 12, 2012, at the age of 86. He was born in Auburn, NY, on September 8, 1925, to John and Adelaide Morgan. Paul devoted his entire life to serving the needs of those in his community. He worked for Fulton Atlanta Community Action Authority until his early 80's where he ended his career serving as Grants Manager for the organization. Paul's true passion was teaching fast pitch softball to the youth of Tucker. "The Professor", as many called him, could be found at the ball field every night of the week. His knowledge has been passed to so many individuals over the past 40 years, and continues to be spread today in parks all across the Southeast. Although he taught many of these individuals how to excel at the sport, his greatest gift was the lessons he taught them about life, teamwork, overcoming adversity, and perseverance. He was a devoted husband for the past 45 years. His wife, Maureen, and family were the center of his universe. He loved University of Notre Dame football. You could always find him wearing some sort of Notre Dame paraphernalia. He was a handyman who could do basically anything around the house. Paul was an avid golfer in his younger years. Most importantly, he was a devout Catholic who loved the church and Jesus Christ. He was a living breathing example of the life Jesus calls us to lead. Paul is survived by his wife of 45 years, Maureen Morgan, his sisters, Patricia Shaughnessy Tucker, GA, Marion "Honey" Mongan Downey, CA, daughter Jennifer Epps, husband Kyle, and their daughter Jessica, daughter Kathy Navarra, husband Jason, and their daughter Mckenzie, son Greg Morgan, wife Traci, and their son Preston and daughter Hailey, and his son Mike Morgan, wife Linda, and their sons Nicholas and Ryan, and daughter Adalyn. A viewing for Paul will be held from 7pm to 9pm on Thursday, August 16th at Wages and Sons Funeral Home, located at 1040 Main Street in Stone Mountain, and a Funeral Mass will be held on Friday, August 17th at 11am at Corpus Christi Catholic Church, located at 600 Mountain View Drive in Stone Mountain. The family would like to thank Dr. Navarrete, Carol, Mary, and Lynn for their constant care and guidance over these past few years. This team went above and beyond the call of duty for Paul. He truly appreciated the excellent care you provided. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Alzheimer's Association in Paul's memory at www.alz.org.
