Norman Edward ‘Ed’ Morgan – Daily Chef

The funeral of Mr. Norman Edward “Ed” Morgan will be held at 2 p.m., Wednesday, May 4, at Riverwood Family. Visiting hours are from 5-8 p.m., Tuesday, May 3, at Riverwood and will resume from 1 p.m. until service time Wednesday.

Mr Morgan, 78, of Hazlehurst, died on April 30, 2022 at King’s Daughters Medical Center. He was born in Mobile, AL on January 5, 1944. He served his country in the US Army and was a proud Vietnam veteran. Mr. Morgan was a carpenter by trade and was known for his work restoring many Antebellum homes in and around Port Gibson. One of his favorite sayings was, “I taught you everything you know, but not everything I know!” He had a soft spot in his heart for “his daughters” and greeted each of them with “my daughter”. Mr. Morgan was particularly happy on the lake. He said “a bad day of fishing is better than a good day of work”. Mr. Morgan has always had an interest in racing and was a former driver and mechanic. He was a generous soul and had an extremely outgoing personality, he never met a stranger. Those who knew and loved him will truly feel the absence of his huge personality!

He is predeceased by his parents, Fred Edward Morgan and Larue Adley Morgan; great-granddaughter, Casey Lynn Morgan; and his son-in-law, Randolph Driscoll.

Those who cherish his memory are his wife of 46 years, Linda Riley Morgan; sons, Gary Morgan (Margaret), Jimmy Barlow (Julie) and Tim Barlow; daughters, Sherry Driscoll, Courtney Morgan and Shelby Jenkins; brother, William James Morgan (Joan); ten grandchildren, Justin Morgan (Savannah), Randy Driscoll (Ashley), Tori Driscoll, Kayla Barlow, Quinten Barlow (Tiffany), Lexie Barlow, Carson Barlow, Cooper Barlow (Katelyn), Riley Barlow and Jackson Barlow. He is also survived by 12 great-grandchildren; Brantley Morgan, his great-grandson whom he raised as his own child; and many other loving family members and friends.
