Richard T. “Dick” Morgan

Richard T. “Dick” Morgan, age 78, of Dubuque, IA, completed his earthly journey on August 1, 2023, at home while surrounded by his loving family.  To honor Dick’s life, a private family service is being held.  The Tri-State Cremation Center is humbly serving Dick’s family.


Dick was born on September 1, 1944, in Dubuque, IA, a son to Thomas and Evelyn (Heuchelin) Morgan.  Dick was very active and continually finding the joys life had to offer even from a young age.  He always enjoyed being in the outdoors, especially on his farm in Elizabeth where a little hunting and camping could easily make their way onto the list for the day.  He was also an avid runner who was a proud member of the Chicago Area Runners Association (CARA) and was truly blessed to have been invited to run the Boston Marathon twice in his life.  Dick was a Vice President of Manufacturing for over 20 years until his retirement was eventually realized.  Dick had a strong work ethic and always took great pride in all that he did throughout his years.  Our hearts are broken today at the mere thought of all of the earthly battles that Dick faced over the recent years, but we find peace thankfully in the knowledge that he is now at peace and only awaits patiently for us to all be reunited once again.  Thank you, Dick, for being a true man among men and may the abundance of wonderful memories which you leave behind help to heal our pain of loss and bring us comfort within the most difficult days ahead.
