Bob Morgan

Feb. 12, 1939 – April 30, 2013

Bob Morgan went home to be with his Lord and Savior on April 30, 2013, following a valiant battle with cancer. He was born on Feb. 12, 1939, in Jenny Lind, Ark., to Olen James and Irene Knox Morgan. He enjoyed his early years in rural Arkansas and later moved to Santa Paula, Calif., where he graduated from Santa Paula High School.

Bob enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1957 and was stationed in Baumgarten, Germany. After his military service he first served in the Santa Paula Police Department and then moved to Denver where he joined Denver Police Department and developed interests in hunting, fishing, taxidermy, country music, dancing and restoring vintage cars. He retired from the Denver Police Department in 1985 after 25 years of service and managing their crime lab. Seeking a warmer climate he donned a captain’s hat for a charter fishing business for five years in Punta Gorda, Fla. He returned to police service once again in 1990, where he also headed the Oxnard Police Department’s crime lab.

After 50 years of service to his country and community, Bob and his wife Sandra retired and moved from their home in Ojai in 2007 and settled in Pollock Pines. There he enjoyed family gatherings, wonderful friendships, boating, restoring vintage Ford vehicles and attending the Pollock Pines Community Church. He was a member of the Early Ford V-8 Club of America, El Dorado Early Ford V-8 Club and Thunderbird Car Club of America and a regular attendee at local car shows.

Bob was preceded in death by Thomas and Pearl Morgan, his beloved grandparents; and is survived by his wife, Sandra; and his brother, Gary (Pam) Morgan of Tacoma, Wash. His four children and their families reside in the greater metropolitan area of Denver. He was proud of his children, including two sons, Robert (Trisha) Morgan and Stephen (Tobi) Morgan; and two daughters, Debbie Morgan and Michelle Sewell. His seven grandchildren are David (Janie) Kenney, Sara (Richardo) Perez, Cody Sewell, Emily Sewell, Nicole Morgan, Shane Morgan and Christine Morgan. His four great-grandchildren are Colby Kenney, Owen Kenney, Bella Perez and Matthew Sewell.

A celebration of Bob’s life will be held at the Pollock Pines Community Church on Monday, May 20 at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers donations may be made in Bob’s name to your favorite charity. The Morgan Family extends a heartfelt thank you to the devoted staff at the Transitional Care Center at Marshall Hospital for their loving care of Bob during his illness.
