George Lewis Morgan of Abingdon, Virginia passed away on Saturday March 20, 2021 at Morristown Memorial Hospital.  He was 91.  He was born in Schenectady, NY to the late Harry Irvin and Dorothy Morgan.  He is predeceased by his sister the late Marilyn (Morgan) Galster of Sacramento, CA.

George, or Lew, as he liked to be called, grew up in Schenectady, NY and graduated from Clarkson University in 1951 with a BS in Chemistry.  He served with honor in the U.S. Army as a 1st Lieutenant in the Korean War from 1951 to 1953 where he received a Bronze Star.  Upon returning home he moved to New Jersey where he was employed by American Cyanamid as a chemist and finishing his career as Plant Manager.    He transferred to Abingdon, VA in 1975 and worked until his retirement in 1986. He relocated back to New Jersey in 2013 to be with his family.

Lew had a lively sense of humor, and a passion for photography, hiking, and camping.  He spent many a summer vacationing with his family at many of the national parks across the country and took annual trips to Vermont to experience the beautiful fall foliage.  While in New Jersey, Lew was a member of the Bound Brook Presbyterian Church and enjoyed his time in Brook Fellowship and singing in the choir.  After his move to Virginia, he joined the Pleasant View United Methodist Church in Abingdon, where he continued singing in the choir and doing volunteer work.  He ran the church’s food pantry for many years and served on the building committee for many of their major expansion projects.

He is survived by his five children Barbara Wexel and husband Lee of Gambrills, MD; Lewis Morgan and wife Karen of Sparta, NJ; David Morgan of Raleigh, NC; Ellen Bezpa and husband Bruce of Piscataway, NJ; and Heather Alonge and husband Robert of Lebanon, NJ; grandchildren Gwyneth Stringfield, Alyssa Dunlap, Linea Neff, Daniel Morgan, John Morgan, Jake Bezpa, Kylie Bezpa and Stephanie Miceli, as well as 7 great-grandchildren.
