Harry L. Morgan, 92, of Ronks, PA, went home to be with his Lord on Saturday, March 4, 2023, at Fairmount Homes after a battle with cancer. Born in Pitman, PA, he was the youngest son of Joseph and Lottie Morgan. Known as “Fuzzy” to his family and friends, he worked with his family on the home farm and, in 1952, he married Ruth N. Willier. In 1953, he left for Korea and proudly served in the US Army during the war. Upon his return, he continued farming in Pitman for many years, raising hogs, laying hens, and field crops as well as fruits and vegetables. He and Ruth raised 3 sons: Phillip, Steven and Tedd. In 1980, they sold the farm and moved to Lancaster County. Harry worked for Agway, Ephrata until his retirement; in his retirement, he enjoyed gardening, woodworking, his wife’s delicious home-cooked meals and being with family and friends. Harry was a member of the Evangelical Congregational Church, worshipping at St. Paul’s in Pitman, Faith EC in Lancaster, and Mt. Airy EC congregations.
