Morgan, Joseph A.

            Joseph A. Morgan, 87, of Beltsville, MD. peacefully passed away at home Sunday morning Nov. 19th, 2023. Joe was born July 20, 1936, to Dolly Rose Anna Gray and John Edmond Hall in St. Mary’s county, MD.

            Joe married the love of his life, Edna Tippett Morgan Dec. 7, 1961, who preceded him in death Aug. 27, 2023. Joe was employed as a Chief Engineer at Maryland Farms Condominium Association for over 45 years. He was fondly nicknamed “Mr. Maryland Farms” by many residents for his professionalism, dedication, expertise and friendly, outgoing personality. Joe served in the U.S.A.F. overseas and in the States in the 1960’s.

            He was preceded in death by his youngest son Wayne A. Morgan, both his parents, siblings William (Bill) E. Morgan, Martha (Julia) E. Morgan Herbert, Elmer J. Morgan, Herman T. Morgan, and Isaac (Ikey) W. Morgan.

            He is survived by his two children, Joseph E. (Linda) Morgan and Janet Salvetti; 7 grandchildren: Justin Morgan Reeves, Joseph R. (Jamie) Morgan, Steven Salvetti, Jeffrey (Julie) Morgan, Ashley Salvetti, Dale Salvetti, Shelly Salvetti, and 6 (with one more on the way!) great grandchildren. Also surviving Joe is his brother Lewis M. Morgan (Bunny) and sister Elizabeth R. (Anna) Hall Morgan.

            Joe, as a husband, father, father-in-law, pop-pops, brother and uncle was highly and fondly looked up to and admired for his strength, wise advice, unending sense of humor and helpful ways. He was gentle and strong all at the same time. He made us all laugh so much. Joe was a very tall man with big strong hands, he would give the shirt off his back and help in any way he could with those big strong hands. He was always right there for his family and friends until the end. Joe will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

            Visitation was held at 10:00 am on Saturday, December 2, 2023, followed by a prayer service at 11:00 at Borgwardt Funeral Home, 4400 Powder Mill Road, Beltsville, MD. The interment followed service at the Maryland National Memorial Park Cemetery at 12:00 noon, Laurel, MD.
