Darrell Edwin Morgan born Nov. 13, 1980 of Stanford KY, passed away tragically on Monday, Aug. 24, while riding his motorcycle in Bowling Green.

Darrell enjoyed many things, many of which annoyed his loving wife such as his XBOX and playing Call of Duty during inappropriate hours, any shows that featured drag racing or fast cars, and leaving lights on throughout the house whether he needed them or not.

He was a renowned chef, his signature dishes, which were all that he could make included spaghetti with meat and eggs.

Of all things he enjoyed most, was his family. He was an incredibly patient and dedicated father, son, brother and the most amazing husband.

He allowed his daughter to fix his hair with bows and rubber bands, and they enjoyed all things outdoors including four-wheeling, playing in creeks, and boating. He said it was the least he could do since he let his wife do fun things like dental and doctor appointments and designating chores.

Darrell never met a dog that didn’t like him, and he was blessed with the gift of listening to anyone but his wife. Darrell had no enemies, only people that knew of him as kind, patient, loyal and caring. His heart was the second largest organ on his body. (not counting skin, who does that?)

He also thought himself a comedian, he could make anyone smile and enjoyed farting on his wife when she was the big spoon in bed. He claimed it was for her health, as he had read that the smell was good at preventing illnesses.

Darrell was a true craftsman, through years of learning with his father, he had mastered tile setting like an artist, building magazine-worthy bathrooms and kitchens for families all over Kentucky all the way to Wisconsin.

Darrell leaves behind his adoring wife, Amber Noel Morgan of Stanford KY, their daughter Lillia Sage, and baby Abagail who will make her appearance near his birthday in November. He also leaves behind his loving father Troy Morgan of Bowling Green who has always been his biggest fan, a loving brother Russell Morgan of Bowling Green who never got the chance to say how much he looked up to him, two half-sisters, Nikki Hardin (Alex) of Monmouth Ill., and Ashley Gardner (Richard) of Wentzville MO., his stepbrother Jason Tuck (Jamie) of Bowling Green, and Tina Tuck Thompson (Tim) of Alvaton, 2 nephews, Eli and Liam, and a multitude of extended family from his wives’ side and even more friends.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Ellen Vink Terwilliger (Terry) of Bowling Green, his stepmother Becky Morgan (Troy) of Bowling Green, grandparents Ory and Wilda Morgan of Bowling Green and Dick Tatman of Monmouth IL, and his biological father, Jeffrey Tatman of Monmouth IL.

Darrell was an amazing specimen of humankind. He was the kind that broke the mold, and will be truly missed.

A celebration of life will be held on Oct. 3, location and time will be announced via social media. J.C. Kirby & Son Broadway Chapel has been entrusted with arrangements.
