Bradley Benton Morgan, age 78, of Belen, sadly left us on April 18 as a result of a car accident.  

Bradley Benton Morgan

He is preceded in passing by his wife, Toni Banks Morgan, of 49 years.  

Brad is survived by his children: son, Phillip Morgan and girlfriend, Amanda Cagle of Phoenix; daughter, Dione Stuart, husband, Will Stuart and grandchildren, Hayden and Liam Stuart of Raleigh, N.C. and son, Darin Morgan of San Francisco Calif.; his brother, Phillip Morgan of Foley, Ala.; his sister-in-law, Mary Jo Pippin of Anchorage, Alaska, and his brother-in-law, Fred Banks, with his wife, Joy, of Sierra Vista Az.  

Brad was a proud veteran of the Vietnam war with the U.S. Army. Even though he worked as an electrician for 40-plus years, he was a jack of all trades. His motto was “busy hands are happy hands,” so he was always busy with his many projects. No matter what he did, he was meticulous in every way, never leaving things to chance or doing it halfway.  

He always had his small notebook with pen on his person to miss nothing. Brad was hard working, loyal, kind, generous, passionate about what he believed…and loved to give those close to him a hard time. He loved to tease, laugh, and poke the bear, which was especially true while playing cards. He loved his neighbors like brothers/sisters and would have done anything for them. He has driven from one end of the country to the other with his truck packed full of tools to help his kids. He loved his family above all, especially his grandkids. Many tears have been shed over the last few days. Words cannot describe how much he will be missed. No services will be held.
