Elton Kent Morgan
March 1, 1958 – May 10, 2020
Mr. Elton Kent Morgan, 62, passed away on May 10, 2020 in Jasper, Texas.
Elton was born on March 1, 1958 to Elton John Morgan and Lorine (Hinson) Morgan in Jasper, Texas. Elton proudly served in the United States Army with great honor, respect, and love for his country. He then started his career in construction as a carpenter, which he took pride in and would even share with his children while they were growing up. A simple man, Elton loved spending time fishing, hunting, using his guns, and listening to old country music along with classic rock. The most important thing to him was his family, as he cherished his kids and grandkids, who will always remember their “PawPaw”. His memory will live on in the hearts of those who knew him, and he will be deeply missed.
