Boyd Elwood Morgan, age 83 of Palmyra, passed away Monday, June 4, 2018, at Longmeadow Care Center.

He was born November 21, 1934, in Elizabeth, West Virginia, to parents John Paul and Juanita (Woolard) Morgan. Boyd was raised on a farm until moving to Portage County in the 1940’s.

Boyd is survived by his children: Linda (David) Terry, David (Kim) Morgan, Edward (Carol) Morgan and his grandchildren: Heather (Nicholas Duplay) Terry, Richard (Katie) Hibbard, Michael Meller, Christopher Morgan, Sara Morgan and Emily Morgan.

I can't believe both of these lovely people have departed this place and left a great void that never can be filled May the sweet fragrance of their well lived and loved life invade your hearts minds and souls As I heard someone say earlier in the day when you go to your flower bed which one's do you pick the dead one's or the beautiful live one's God just did the same The joy they gave will forever be etched in our memories I pass God's peace to all of you

Boyd was always a good husband, father, grandfather and friend to many. One thing I remember vividly was he taught me to drive back in the early 60’s. Sandy and I wish to give the Morgan family our condolences, wishing we could have been there for the memorial services. Our best to you all.
