Billy Joe Morgan


Weatherford Democrat

Billy Joe Morgan, 53, beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend, went to his eternal home July 8, 2013. 

Graveside services will be at 4 p.m. Wednesday at Tin Top Cemetery in Weatherford. 

Billy was born June 10, 1960, in Weatherford, to J.W. and Dorothy Morgan, of Weatherford. Billy has been a lifelong resident of Weatherford. Billy married Sherri Kennedy Morgan of Granbury, on Oct. 12, 1984, raising two beautiful children, Krystle and Joshua. Billy was a proud father and grandfather of two, Chandler Morgan and Betheny Couch, who were his pride and joy. 

Billy began working for Lockheed Martin when he was 18 years old as a machinist, up until his death. Billy will be missed not only by his family and friends, but by every person he came into contact with. He never knew a stranger. Billy’s kindness towards others, encouragement towards others in need, sacrificing his needs for others, and giving more than he took, resulted in the love and adoration of his family. His attitude and love for others were an example of what living life is all about, as he lived life to the fullest. 

Survivors include two children, Krystle Morgan and Joshua Morgan of Weatherford; their mother and his best friend, Sherri Morgan Smith and her husband, Curtis, of Weatherford; two grandchildren, Chandler Morgan and Betheny Couch, of Weatherford; four sisters, Viola Powell of Mineral Wells, Leda Holder and husband, Jimmy, of Weatherford, Rosetta Yoder and husband, Curtis, of May, Texas and Geneva Gill and husband, John, of Irving Texas; six brothers, George Morgan and wife, Janice, James Morgan and wife, Sarah, Tommy Morgan and wife, Verda, Walter Morgan and wife, Bonnie, and Archie Morgan, all of Weatherford; and Dale Morgan of Lubbock, as well as countless nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Billy Joe Morgan is greatly missed and loved.
