Thomas M. Morgan is a proud veteran of the United States Airforce. Following his retirement he moved to a town he helped founder, Leland, and opened a mechanical shop by the name of Tommy’s Auto Repair. For over 30 years he fostered strong ties throughout the community, so much so that nearly every household knew and thought of him fondly making him more than just the neighborhood mechanic, making him their friend. He continued to deepen his ties to the community and his faith by also being an active member of the Bridge of Life Community Church.

Thomas M. Morgan is preceded in death by mother Vivian I. Morgan, father Laudest T. Morgan and two sons, Danny T. Morgan and Tommy J. Morgan. He is survived by wife Ora A. Morgan, daughter Patricia A. Asbell and multiple loving grand and great grandchildren.

In Lieu of Flowers the family humbly asks that memorial donations in memory of Thomas M. Morgan be sent to the Lower Cape Fear Hospice & LifeCare Center.
