Milton E. Morgan passed away Tuesday, August 13, 2013 at his home in Ashland, Ore., after living four years with cancer. He was born March 7, 1937, to Alfreda and Milton Morgan in Milwaukee, Wis. He completed his formal education in architecture and earned advanced degrees in business. In San Francisco, Calif., he founded and managed for 22 years his own firm, Morgan Associates, specializing in architecture, planning, and construction management.
Concurrent with a professional career, he was active in many professional, yachting, fraternal, and environmental organizations, and he served as an officer or board member in many of them. He followed a life-long love and avocation of traveling and sailing which led to worldwide traveling and sailing. His curiosity and sense of adventure created many unique, life-changing experiences in unexpected places all over the world. In the course of his life he loved hiking, camping, traveling, birding, wildlife, reading, music, scuba diving, and his dogs.
He retired to Ashland, Ore., and continued personal involvement in Rotary, SCORE, and Chamber Music Concerts where he served as president, and was very active in the care of the buildings and activities of Trinity Episcopal Church.
