Obituary for William F. Morgan
William Francis Morgan, 81, of Voorhees, NJ, passed away October 25th. He is survived by his children: James, Michael and wife Lauren, both of New Jersey, Kathleen Valleau and husband Dana of Maine, his sisters Barbara Hoffmann and Susan Richardson, many nieces and nephews and brothers-in-law Robert and Maland., both of Massachusetts. He was a doting grandfather of Sarah and Charlotte Morgan, and Jack and Samuel Valleau. Bill was predeceased by his parents, James A. and Elizabeth (Scofield) Morgan and by his younger brother, Lawrence.
Born in Queens, New York on May 25, 1936, Bill attended St. Francis Preparatory School and graduated from St. Francis College, where he made lifelong friends at his beloved alma mater. He served in the United States Army in Stuttgart, Germany, from 1958 to 1960, which initiated his love for that country and for international travel. In 1963 he left his job in New York and moved to San Francisco.
Bill married Eileen McKeon in New York in January 1966. Travelling immediately back to California, they spent several years in that state and in Hong Kong and the Philippines. The family of five then settled in Cherry Hill, NJ.
He held many positions in international banking, including jobs with the Bank of California and Fidelity Bank. He retired from the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia. Not surprisingly, his retirement contained more travel, both in the U. S. and abroad. Bill loved to visit with friends in bier gartens all over the world.
The Post Card Man will always be remembered for his wit, his funny Christmas letters, his love of travel, and his extraordinary love of his family.
A gathering of family and friends will be held at the Bradley Funeral Home, Marlton, NJ, on Monday, October 30th from 2 to 3p.m. with a time of sharing at 3p.m. and refreshments following. A private interment gathering will be Wednesday, November 1st at 10 a.m.
