Jay and Family: Chris and I are very sorry at the news of your Father’s passing. I have many fond memories of my conversations with him. In all of those, however, I never learned that he had been a boxer! That just adds to those memories. He truly was a Giant and will long be remembered.

My condolences to the entire family. Everyone that knew Shorty loved him. He and my father (Frank Farrier) were friends but of course Shorty was friends with everyone.

To the Family of Charles (Shorty) Morgan:

I was deeply saddened at the passing of Shorty. Shorty was the Head Boiler Operator when I came to #4 Crew at the Burger plant. It was a privilege to have worked with him and a most enjoyable experience. He was a good leader and very knowledgeable of the plant. His personal disposition was warm, witty, and caring. Due to his knowledge he was selected to become the Skills Training Coordinator. They could not have chosen a better teacher. We all learned much from him.

My prayers are that memories of good times shared with Shorty help to ease the pain and sorrow of the loss of a great person. I have to say that all of my memories shared with Shorty were good.

Sympathy and Empathy to the Morgan Family. Mr. Morgan was such a wonderful man, he always had a smile on his face. Whenever we came back to the Valley he would take us out to dinner. A most loved man who now gets to enjoy Paradise.
