LAKE GEORGE Delbert Morgan Filkins, 78, of Lake George and formerly of Saratoga Springs, was promoted to glory Monday, July 22, 2013, at C.R. Wood Cancer Center of Glens Falls Hospital, after a long illness.

He was born Dec. 15, 1934, in Saratoga Springs, to Joseph and Sarah Elizabeth (Foster) Filkins.

Morgan retired as a 36-year employee of the U.S. Postal Service as a rural carrier in Saratoga Springs.

Most recently, he spent 13 years working "greens and grounds" at Saratoga National Golf Club. Volunteer activities included being a lifetime member of Maple Avenue Fire Department in Saratoga Springs.

Morgan was an avid golfer who excelled at the sport and was a longtime member of Brookhaven Golf Club. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and outdoor sports.

He was passionate about spending time with his family and his dog of 10 years, his golden retriever, Buddy.

Besides his parents, Morgan was predeceased by his wife of 42 years, Hazel Hayes Filkins; two of his children, Kathleen (infant) and Kevin (age 52); his brother, Joseph Filkins; and his sister, Eleanor Filkins Parker.

A calling hour will be held from 10 to 11 a.m. Monday, July 29, 2013, at Maynard D. Baker Funeral Home, 11 Lafayette St., Queensbury.

A funeral service will follow at 11 a.m. at the funeral home, led by Major David Maddock of Salvation Army, Dubois, Penn.

Maple Avenue Fire Company No. 4 of Greenfield Fire District will lead the procession to Maplewood Cemetery, corner of Wiebel Avenue and Loudon Road, Saratoga Springs, for burial following the funeral service.

Heartfelt thanks to the staff of C.R. Wood Cancer Center of Glens Falls Hospital whose nurses, nursing assistants and technicians excelled at not only care but humor, kindness and dignity.
