"FORDYCE - Vernon H. Morgan of Fordyce, Ark., died of congestive heart failure in Twin Rivers Rehabilitation Center in Arkadelphia, Saturday Aug. 5, 2006. He was born Dec. 14, 1920, in Ivan, Ark., He is survived by his wife, Imogene Morgan; a daughter, Rebecca Morgan of Fayetteville, Ark.; a son, Henry Morgan and wife Veda of Arkadelphia, Ark.; three sisters, Doris Gresham, Ruth Evelyn Kauffman and Millie Coulter; three grandchildren, Morgan Hooker, Tony Ranchino, Niki Jackson; and two great-granddaughters. He was preceded in death by his mother and father, Henry L. Morgan and Lucy Morgan, as well as two sisters, Virginia Cannon and Estelle Morgan.
"Vernon was a veteran of World War ll, and was severely wounded in the Battle of the Bulge in Germany. He overcame the doctors' predictions who told him he would never walk again. He laughingly would comment "They gave me a rifle and told me to shoot at someone, and I wasn't mad at anybody." He was a successful businessman, operating the Lion Oil Jobbership for Dallas County. He became interested in timberland and bought and managed his timber investments until the last day of his life. He believed in conservation and in leaving the land better off than when he bought it.
"The family has requested no flowers, but if you feel compelled, any gift would be appreciated to Alzheimer's Research.
"Burial will be at a little cemetery on the farm where Vernon was born near his beloved Goathead Deer Camp, casual dress required. Arrangements are by Benton Funeral Home of Fordyce. To sign the online register visit www.bentonfuneralhome.com."
