A Time to Be Born….
RONALD EDWARD MORGAN was born the first of a set of identical twins to the late Mrs. Rosie Tean Johnson Morgan and Huey P. Morgan on September 8, 1955, in Monroe, Louisiana. During his early years he grew up in Bastrop, LA until he was eight years old. In 1964, his family relocated to San Diego.
A Time to Live….
While growing up, Ronald and his family united with the Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church, where he received Christ as his Lord and Savior and was baptized under the pastorate of the late Rev. Norman J. Jackson. He and his siblings participated in various youth ministries. Later in life, he joined Good Shepherd Missionary Baptist Church where he served as a deacon and as an usher under the pastorate of Dr. Gregory O. Morgan, who is also his younger brother. He grew to develop a special bond of brotherhood with Deacon Andy Lawyer, Jr., who was his mentor, and Deacon J.T. Inge, both of whom contributed to his discipleship training and equipped him to serve as a deacon.
Ronald received his education in San Diego, graduating from San Diego High School in 1973. After high school, he attended trade school in Phoenix, AZ before returning home to help his family. He enlisted in the United States Navy where he served his country faithfully for 15 years, receiving an honorable discharge. During his military service, he was recognized with seven total commendations and awards. Later, he was employed with the Veteran’s Administration until he became disabled and was unable to work.
Ronald was a people person. He didn’t meet any strangers. He would strike up a conversation with anyone and make them feel as if they were old friends. He had a heart of gold and found joy in helping others. His smile and booming laughter will be missed by all who knew him.
A Time to Love….
Ronald was formerly married to Katherine Moses. To their union was born one son, Ronald Edward Morgan, Jr., whom he affectionately called “Little Ron.”
A Time to Say Good-Bye….
