Mr. Morgan started me on flute in fifth grade. I became a music major and band director for thirty years. His influence, for sure.

Mr. Morgan was my first music teacher in Woodville, Ohio. I still play my instrument in a community band in NH. He was a wonderful teacher.

Mr. Morgan, as we had to call him back in high school in Woodville, Ohio, was my favorite teacher. I loved anything to do with band, where I played clarinet. He always challenged us to improve our playing ability. Therefore, we had a superior band. I got a chance to talk to him a few years ago at a WHS reunion. I thanked him for his musical guidance & instructions. I also told him that I had begun playing again after 35 years; and now play alto saxophone in 4 community bands in the Toledo area. Music and Band was and still is an important part of my social life. Thank you Mr. Morgan. Rest in peace.

My condolenses to Bob Morgan’s family and friends. While I did not know him, he attended Shadyside High School with my parents. I let my father, George Brannen, know about Bob’s passing. He told me that he considered Bob as his friend and mentor. He also told a story about their days on the 1949 Shadyside basketball team. On Feb 11, 1949, Shadyside played Yorkville; which had a prolific scorer set shooter named Ken Alessi. Bob blocked several of Ken Alessi’s shots during the game. Bob eventually fouled out and after that, Yorkville dominated the game. Final score was Yorkville 103, Shadyside 69; and Ken Alessi scored 70 points.

Bob (Mr. Morgan) was our band instructor at Woodville High School in 1962 when I graduated and during that time we had an outstanding high school band. I was a mediocre clarinet player at best, but Mr. Morgan always made us feel that we were part of a special experience. For many of us at WHS he was THE TEACHER who was not only approachable but a friend who would listen and laugh with us when we were “just being kids”.
