Charlie worked hard his whole life and had many talents, especially teaching himself to play the guitar, mandolin, fiddle, and piano.
He is preceded in death by both his parents, and his two brothers, John and Roy Morgan.
Charlie leaves behind his two daughters, Donna and husband Steve Agee of Milano and Michelle and husband Charlie King of Cedar Creek; four grandsons, Justin and Caleb Stevenson, Jacob and Colby King; two granddaughters, Rachel and Morgan Stevenson; one brother Sam Morgan and wife Alice of Elgin; one sister Audrey and Merle Rother of McDade; and dear friend and companion, Lillian Buzan.
