Anchorage, Alaska-On Tuesday, June 16, 2015, Samuel “Adam” Morgan took the hand of Jesus and they walked together into his heavenly home to live forever and die no more.
Adam was the first born son of Shannon and Trish Morgan of Wasilla, Alaska. He was born Mar. 23, 1992.
He was the first born pride and joy of his grandparents, Sam and Janie Morgan of Organ Cave and Arbutus Persinger and the late Jack Persinger of Rainelle.
Adam is survived by twin brothers, Tim and Isaac Morgan, and his youngest brother, Matthew. The boys spent many memory making times at Papaw and Nanie’s farm while growing up. The brothers would harmonize beautifully singing “acapella” in area churches. Adam’s infectious smile warmed so many hearts. He was a true gentleman. Respectfully, he would stand as a lady passed by him. He would greet her with that smile. Adam would be the same polite young man wherever he would meet you. Papaw taught Adam how to enjoy working while he worked side by side with his grandfather on the farm. Adam enjoyed working with Nanie at Organ Cave giving tours of the cave. He also worked for Dr. John Tomilson on his farm. Adam worked for Lowe’s in Lewisburg and Alaska.
Adam graduated in 2010 from Greenbrier East High School where he was a member of ROTC. He was named “Cadet of the year.” While in Alaska, he met his wife, Cassie. They were married May of 2013 on Papaw and Nanie’s farm. He, his wife, his brothers and his beloved dog, Doc, made special memories hiking the mountains of Alaska.
On June 16, 2015, Adam died as a result of a tragic construction accident while working for Hartman’s Construction in Anchorage, Alaska.
Adam’s earthly tabernacle was laid to rest on Saturday, May 20, at Valley Memorial Park Cemetery for just a little while. One day soon his glorified body will resurrect and reunite with his soul. We will see Adam face to face to never part or say good-bye again.
There will be a memorial service at Graystone Baptist Church, Fairlea, on Friday, July 10, at 6 p.m. to celebrate his life. Pastor Youel Altizer will officiate.
