NEAL DONOVAN MORGAN
November 18, 1989- June 26, 2021
It is with great sadness and tremendous heartache that the family announces the sudden passing of our beloved son, Neal Morgan, at the young age of 31 years.
Neal is survived by his parents, Debbie and Larry; twin brother Michael (Lauren); nephew Grayson; niece Reese; grandmother Gloria; godmother and friend Jennifer Bird; aunties, Martha, Ruth, and Jessica; uncles, Charles and Brian; cousins, Karen, Andy, Katlyn, Justin, Hadyen, Meara, Dave, Alyssa, Brigitte, Jennifer, Trevor, Emerson, Gunner, Sara, Sherrylyn, Kristy, Krystal, Levi, Samantha, Thomas, Steven, and Jay; dear friends, Sandy, Roger Tanisha, Joey, Stacey, Dave, Todd, Sandra, Tracy , Rennie, Wayne, Chris, Matt, Kelsie, Heather, Drue, Sam, Tracy, Rob, Jodi, Joselyn, Adeola, and Lace. He was predeceased by his grandfather Garrie Vallie
Neal was older than his twin-brother Mike, by 45 minutes, with whom he shared a special bond. Together they enjoyed swimming, hiking, playing, and generally goofing around. Neal looked up to his brother for everything and loved him tremendously. Neal would get very excited when his nephew Grayson and niece Reese would come over. He enjoyed being with them, loved playing with them, and he would laugh and laugh when they were stinkers. Neal truly loved them dearly.
Neal enjoyed hanging out in the garage with his dad while building or fixing things; he was a most definitely a “tool guy”. He also loved being with his mom, no matter what it was that she would be doing. They did everything together. Neal was a Mama's boy.
Neal also loved his godmother and friend Jen. He would call her, “Mama-Mama” or “Mama Jen”. He liked when she was a goof for him; they would laugh and laugh together. Neal also liked it when they went for car rides, looking for horses together, and listening to music; she meant the world to him.
Neal very much enjoyed going to Roger and Sandys farm in Stead Manitoba, which is where he fell in love with trucks and farms. Neal had been visiting there since the age of five.
Neal had the travel bug. He has been to British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Ontario to visit with family. He attended school in the River East School Division, from Kindergarten to graduation, within the special needs program, where he made lots of friends. The thing Neal liked most about school was the school dances.
After graduation Neal attended a day program in the city where he met Adeola, Jodi, Lace, and Joselyn; all of whom were exceptionally good at their jobs. Neal and Joselyn had a special bond; she was so kind and loving toward him.
Neal and his parents moved to Stead, Manitoba after buying farmland and building a home. Neal loved nature, enjoyed picking bark off the trees, and sitting in amongst the trees for hours at a time.
Neal was a loving and innocent soul who was curious about everything and anything. His laugh was infectious, even if sometimes he would be laughing at nothing at all. His autism would cause a lot of emotional ups and downs, but he taught all of us a lot about life.
Neal, as your parents we loved you more then you may have realized, and our words cannot express how much you meant to us. With such sadness and tremendous heartache, you are missed every second of every day. You are ever present in our thoughts and are loved at every moment in time. May God keep you safe, we love you, Neal.
Neal's Celebration of Life will be at 1:00 PM on Saturday, August 28, 2021, in the Stead Community Centre, 96134 Stead Road, Stead, Manitoba.
