Wellsville – Golden Frank Morgan passed away on December 23, 2005. Golden was born July 31, 1919, in Clifton, Idaho to Joseph Franklin Morgan and Essie Elsie Summers Morgan. Golden was reared in Layton and attended school in Davis County.
He married Prudence Mae Selleneit on October 28, 1938 in Spokane, WA. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple.
Golden worked as a welder at the Grand Coulee Dam, as well as at the Puget Sound Navy Yard in Bremmerton, for the Seattle Tacoma Ship Building Corp., and as a welding instructor in Vancouver, WA. Golden and Prudence moved to Layton in 1945 and started raising turkeys and cattle with his father and brothers under the title of J. Frank Morgan and Sons. Golden was a member of the board of directors of Norbest, Inc. and was named "Turkeyman of the Year," in 1974. He later owned and operated a welding shop and trucking business in Layton.
Golden was a faithful member of the LDS church and held many callings including being a member of the Layton Stake High Council for over ten years. Golden was instrumental in the organization of the many LDS Church's Layton Stake Pit Barbeques. Golden and his family donated much time, labor and equipment to the building of the LDS Church's Stake Camp at Lake Lyman in the Uintas, which has been a blessing to the Morgan family and many others in Layton.
Golden and Prudence retired in St. George where he enjoyed woodworking and gardening. Golden loved the beauty and history of the deserts of Southern Utah and navigated every dirt road he could find.
Golden was preceded in death by his parents, infant daughter, Prudence Morgan, son, R. Frank Morgan, two sisters, Wanda Beus, Margie Deen Johnson and grandson, Benjamin McCowan.
He is survived by his loving wife of 67 years Prudence Mae, daughter, Shanna Rae (Dr. Dean A) Christensen, son Robert Louis (LeAnn) Morgan, daughter, Bonnie Deen (Milo) McCowan, son David Golden (Debbie) Morgan, and daughter in law, Peggy Lee Morgan, two brothers John S (Carol) Morgan and Mark D (Elaine) Morgan as well as 28 grandchildren, 50 great grandchildren, and 2 great great grandchildren.
Golden will be missed by his family and friends. We truly lost a Giant among men.
The family wishes to express heartfelt gratitude to Vista Hospice, and Sunshine Terrace in Logan for their care and loving service.
