Thomas J Morgan

December 25, 1950 — January 12, 2023

Thomas J Morgan age, 72, passed away January 12, 2023, surrounded by his wife of 50 years, KaeLene, and many of his family members. Tom could always be found working hard around his home and passed tragically after a fall working on one of his projects.

Tom was born on Christmas morning, December 25, 1950, in Rupert, Idaho to Cecil Clyde Morgan and Luella Peterson. His siblings are Sue Ethridge, Dave Morgan, Calvin Morgan, Rosy Sparrow, and Wanda Landon. Tom spent the majority of his childhood in the Twin Falls, Idaho area and graduated from Twin Falls High School in the class of 1969.

He served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Melbourne, Australia. KaeLene anxiously awaited his return and they were sealed shortly after on July 21, 1972 in the Logan Utah Temple.

He received his accounting degree and spent most of his career working for Wasatch Property Management. He retired at age 57 and enjoyed more time traveling, making wonderful memories with his family, and perfecting “Tom’s Garden” then giving away most of what he grew.

Tom served his country in the Air Force, traveling extensively throughout the world, and retired after 22 years from the Air Force Reserves. He was honored with the Air Force Commendation Medal and the Utah Cold War Victory medal. He had an immense love for his country.

He made a significant impact on his neighborhood, ward and community. His service emulated that of the Savior by feeding thousands at numerous girls camps, church and family functions. When snow needed to be plowed, or leaves needed to be raked Tom was always the first to be there. He was the gold standard for ministering. He lived a life of consecration with his time and possessions.

Tom was preceded in death by both his parents, his baby brother Calvin, his brother-in-laws Chris Mitton, Dave Sparrow and Greg Summers, and his sister-in-law Marlene Morgan. Tom is survived by his loving wife, KaeLene, his adored children Angela Cooper (Justin), Lance Morgan (Arianne) and Kami Ballstaedt (Nathan). He is also survived by his loving in-laws, Kay and Renea Mitton, Racinda Mitton, Peggy and Doug Hyer, Kurt and Sue Mitton, Marina Mitton. His siblings, Susan Ethridge (Bill), Dave Morgan, Rosy Sparrow, Wanda Landon (Greg). Tom was loved the very most by his grandkids: Cade (Mikall), Elder Nash Cooper, Elder Conner Cooper and Davis Cooper; Liza, Annie, Sadie, Ella and Andrew Morgan; Hallie, Macie, Lily, Rock and Pierce Ballstaedt. He could always be seen on his segway with a Coke in his hand pulling a wagon full of grandkids around the neighborhood.

His testimony of the Savior Jesus Christ was deep. He greatly loved his time serving in the Logan Temple in the baptistry with KaeLene and as an ordinance worker since 2016. His unwavering testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ was evident by the way he lived and served all around him, his incredible patience with people, and will be an eternal legacy for his posterity.
