Obituary for James Morgan

James Randal “Randy” Morgan

November 1, 1957 – November 11, 2015

Randy Morgan (James Randal) 58, passed peacefully in the early morning hours of November 11, 2015 with his family by his side.

Randy was a gentle giant with a Servant’s Heart as big as he. When he worked as a route driver for Mrs. Baird’s Bakeries he would arrange bakery tours for a friend’s special needs class.

He sang for many years in the choir at Atascocita United Methodist Church (AUMC). Randy was instrumental in the creation and start-up of the church’s contemporary service and ran the sound board for many years. He also sang “oldies” with a church group called the “Neverly Brothers.” Randy was a member of the leadership teams for many U.M. Army mission trips that provided home

repairs for the indigent and elderly. He played music to get the day started and impacted countless teens’ lives with his planning and participation in evening worship services. Randy‘s commitment and service to AUMC was so extensive that it was difficult to identify committees that did not count him as an active participant.

After many years of dedicated service to AUMC, Randy felt called to help with the start-up and implementation of FaithQuest United Methodist where he shared his faith, time, talent and gifts for more than three years.

There was a special place in Randy’s heart for the children and volunteers at Texas Children’s hospital. He was a volunteer for Radio Lollipop for more than 10 years. He loved the interaction with the children over the phone and in the studio as well as at special events. He often led line dances out in the hall for the volunteers and was named “Volunteer of the year in 2014.”

Randy had a gift of music and the ability to read a crowd. These gifts served him well in his work as a DJ known as “Rowdy Randy.” Parties, weddings, and a handful of annual community events will be remembered in part by Randy’s fun-loving and jovial presence.

Randy graduated from Mac Arthur High School in 1976. He was such a great husband that other women wished they could clone him! He never cared if he was “committing a man card violation” by holding his wife’s purse! He was very proud of his family and loved them very much. He is survived by his loving wife Teresa of 38 years; son Russell, wife Marcia, granddaughter Skyler; and daughter Shelley Morgan, granddaughter Grace. He also leaves behind siblings: Brenda Smith, Teri Morgan, Cheryl Glaze and Mark Morgan as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers please consider making a donation to Texas Children’s Radio Lollipop in memory of Randy.

That man is a success
Who has lived well,
Laughed often and loved much;
Who has gained the respect
Of intelligent men
And the love of children;
Who has ­lled his niche
And accomplished his task
Who leaves the world better than he found it,
Who has never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty
Or failed to express it;
Who looked for the best in others
And gave the best he had
That Man Is a Success
adapted from Ralph Waldo Emerson

Much love,

Teresa, Shelley and Rus
