Robert was born on Aug. 3, 1961, in Crosby, ND, to Mary Lou and Gary Morgan. He was raised for most of his childhood in Portal, ND. He attended elementary and high school at Burke Central School in Lignite, ND, and graduated in 1979. Following graduation, he worked in the oil field in both North Dakota and Louisiana for several years.
Robert joined the United States Army and served as the Comms/General’s Escort. After leaving the Army he moved to Texas where he pursued a career in plumbing. He most recently lived in Mandan where he opened and operated Morgan Plumbing.
Rob went through many challenges in life. He was able to overcome the challenges he faced through his faith in God.
Rob had a great love for his family. He was the life of family gatherings and could always be counted on to have everyone laughing. His quick wit and stories are forever in the memories of those who knew and loved him. He enjoyed attending sporting events of his nieces, nephews and his grandchildren.
He was an avid hunter and fisherman. His passion for the outdoors was evident to everyone. He loved to share his bounty with anyone who wanted or needed it. One of his highlights was fishing with his daughter, Heather, in the Governor’s Cup.
Rob is survived by his daughter, Heather (Art) Flores; grandchildren, Kalyanna and Aidan Flores; great-grandson, KeKoa Garlough-Flores; mother, Mary Lou Morgan; siblings, Pamela Christianson, Mark (Sheila) Morgan, Stacy (Chad) Willer, and Laurel (Josh) Wenger; and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his father, Gary Morgan; and his nephew, Camden Willer.
We can picture Rob storming the Pearly Gates and talking God’s ear off, explaining his point of view.
