Robert Paul Morgan was born on February 16, 1937, in Mannington, West Virginia to Paul and Grace Morgan. He then moved to Farmington, West Virginia with his family where he lived until joining the Army. Robert joined the Army on May 10, 1956, where he served in the Korean conflict. He was discharged on October 16, 1958, and returned to Farmington to work on the family farm. He later moved to Pampa where he met his future wife, Nelda Tennison. The two were married for 58 years and had three sons: David, Danny, and Donny. He then moved his family to Canadian, Texas, where he worked for Mobil Oil Company. He eventually transferred to Duncan, Oklahoma to finish out his 25-year-long career with the company.

After retiring, Robert and Nelda moved to Amarillo, where he spent the last five years of his life. He loved his wife and all his kids and grandkids and enjoyed getting to spend time with them. He also loved to fish. Robert will be missed and never forgotten. He was the rock and leader of the group. Rest with your Maker, for your journey is done. We will see you again. We love you!
