Donald B. Morgan

Donald B. Morgan, 72, of North Canton, Ohio passed away Monday (Jan. 6, 2014) at Mercy Medical Center after a long illness.

He was born in Fairmont on Jan. 18, 1941, to the late Raymond and Myrtle (Scott) Morgan.

He spent his life playing music and entertaining people everywhere from the West Coast to the East Coast and then finally settling down in North Canton, Ohio, after meeting the love of his live for the past 23 years, Ms. Josephine Johnson. She actually tamed “The Don” and he loved every minute of it. He was most happy just mowing grass, feeding squirrels, taking care of the fish in their backyard pond, and living on Jo’s great cooking.

Donald is survived by his son, Donald B. (Suzanne) Morgan II; several grandchildren and great-grandchildren; sisters, Joann Compton, of Durango, Colo., and Jean Hartley, and Linda Carpenter; brother Raymond Morgan of Fairmont; and his loving adoptive families of Gary (Paula) Shundry and Danny (Linda) Johnson.

Arrangements are under the direction of Mark R. Vrabel Funeral Home, North Canton, Ohio (330-452-4041).

  • Nuke-arms grade stock has been cut by Iran

    Iran has converted three quarters of a nuclear stockpile that it could have turned quickly into weapons-grade uranium into less volatile forms and is well on the way toward transforming the rest, the U.N. atomic agency reported Thursday.
    The development — agreed to by Iran under a nuclear deal it struck late last year with six world powers — leaves Tehran with substantially less of the 20-percent enriched uranium that it would need for a nuclear warhead.
