"Sheriff Morgan was a great inspiration to me. He allowed me to ride as a special deputy at a very young age which led me to eventually pursue my career in law enforcement from which I am now retired. He was always kind and respectful. Rest In Peace Sheriff and thank you!"

"As a young boy I used to walk home from Eastside Elementary school.  Then, Chief Morgan used to wait by his car as us kids crossed the street on our way home.  He was always kind and spoke to us every day.  That was over 45 years ago and still very impactful today.  To his family, I'm so sorry for your loss.  Our world could us so many more good men like him."
