Robert G. "Bob" Morgan Sr., 94, of Youngwood, died peacefully on Sunday August 21, 2022, with family by his side. He was born on July 13, 1928, in South Greensburg, the son of the late Edward and Shirley (Gwinn) Morgan. He was married to Betty J. (Flock) Morgan. Bob attended school in Armbrust and Youngwood. He was the second oldest from a Gold-Star Family and was one of the first two residents from Youngwood to serve in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. He became a Sergeant in the Army Corps of Engineers. Bob retired from DME in Youngwood after working as a machinist for many years. Prior to this, he worked for Age Craft Manufacturing where he formed lifelong friendships. He was a life member of the Elks in Mount Pleasant, Hecla Sportsmen's Club and the Youngwood VFW Post #211 where he held the title of Commander for 12 terms from 1978-1989. Bob was a VFW national representative in 1985 holding the office of National Aide-De-Camp. He loved his town of Youngwood and his country and was proud to have served in the military like his older and younger brothers. Storytelling about his Army days was a favorite pastime. He enjoyed camping with his wife, golfing in the mountains, making wine with friends and visiting with his grandchildren. Bob also found happiness travelling to his childhood home in Wolfcreek, WV to see family. He will be remembered by his son, Robert G.
