MORGAN, Kelly J
Kelly J Morgan was born in Santa Barbara, CA, July 16, 1975. He was the dearly loved youngest son of Alfred and Peggy Morgan. He is survived by his parents, his sister, Trudie M Safreno, and his three brothers Vance R Morgan, Allen F Morgan, and Bradley A Morgan.
Kelly graduated Santa Barbara High School in June 1994. He continued his education at UCLA where he graduated in June 1998 and was pursuing his acting career in Los Angeles. He had a natural love for acting and singing. He began acting at the age of nine as Amahl in the Lobero production of "Amahl and the Night Visitors". He continued to pursue his love for an audience by singing in the Santa Barbara High School Madrigals with whom he traveled to Europe in 1993. A highlight in his acting career was working on "Gunsmoke II" with James Arness and guest staring on other shows such as "Sea Quest" and "ER".
Kelly enjoyed many activities. Just last week he was so proud of the Stoner Park Fox Studio Basketball Team, of which he was a member, having won a tournament. He valued the time he spent on the ski slope hot dogging, as much as he did fly fishing for the big one. Dove hunting with the family was always a highlight. Water polo, golf, diving, rock climbing, and surfing were also on his list of sports that captured this young man as he enriched our lives in so many ways. And he always played to win.
To know Kelly is to love Kelly. His care and love for others enlightened and gave life to any situation, any place. His open arms have been felt by outsiders looking in. His charisma and vitality toward life and people, created warmth and peace in many hearts. Kelly's soul was older than his age. He created an aura of strength, ambition, and natural drive with a deep respect toward life that can't be replaced by those who knew him. He had a love for life with a light spirit and a free sense of humor.
We love you Kelly. Your family will fondly remember how much fun we had with you at your brother's wedding reception Saturday. With your usual charm and energy you brought that spark which only you can do. We'll miss you, little brother. This short tribute is dedicated to you; the man whose life will never be forgotten.
