Wj Morgan, Jr.

June 4, 1969 — April 19, 2023

WJ Morgan, Jr., 53, passed away April 19, 2023. He was known by many names such as Boy, Dad, Papa, Uncle Boy, Dub, Bub and Chief.

WJ was born on June 4, 1969 to Karen and WJ Morgan, Sr. and lived in Tuttle, Oklahoma his entire life. WJ played football in high school and graduated with the class of 1987. He enjoyed playing in adult softball leagues and his love of ball led to him coaching many little league teams throughout the years and working the chains at high school football games.

WJ worked for the City of Tuttle for over 31 years. His career began at the Public Works Department and he started his journey as a volunteer fireman for Tuttle in July of 1993. He became a full time fireman serving as Assistant Fire Chief for Tuttle in August of 2002. He retired from the Tuttle Fire Department in May of 2017. He began his next career for the City of Tuttle in June of 2017 with the Broadband/Fiber Optics Department. These career paths allowed WJ to meet hundreds of people in the community and he was well known throughout his hometown.

WJ was his name, and prankin' was his game! He had the best poker face would totally be sucked in to whatever prank, story or line he was telling you. Always a comedian with some kind of joke up his sleeve, he would have the biggest laugh, at your expense, when the jig was up. That's what made us all love him.

WJ thrived on having fun and had many hobbies throughout his lifetime. He enjoyed water of any kind. He was relentless at throwing kids off the tube at the lake. He had many big fish stories, often throwing a line in if he could find a pole and a pond on motorcycle trips. We all envied his daily Facebook posts or texts of him in the swimming pool. He even enjoyed playing a game of pool. There were many evenings spent cussin' and discussin' strategies to win the table. He also had a passion for hunting, which brought home many trophies that lined the living room walls.... literally! He was a big fan of women's softball, especially OU, and hosted many marathon softball watch parties last summer.

WJ found a new hobby..."later in life"...riding motorcycles. He embraced the wind therapy it brought. He rode the beautiful countryside while attending the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. He saddled up with a group of friends and rode to the Bikes, Blues and BBQ Rally in Fayetteville, Arkansas in 2018. Another friends trip took him to Guymon, Ok to participate in the Five State Run, riding just under a thousand miles, from start to finish, in three days. Yet another friends trip took him to Poteau, OK where he discovered Harley Oil, if you know, you know! He was a member of the Wind and Fire Motorcyle Club and volunteered for and rode in the Ride to Remember for many years. The Talimena Drive was another annual ride that created a lot of memories, including getting stuck on the mountain after dark. He also attended many various poker runs around the Oklahoma City metro to benefit fellow riders.

WJ is survived by his father, Wheeler Morgan, and several generations of family and a lifetime of friends that will miss him dearly.

He was preceded in death by his mother Karen Morgan; wife of 25 years Twila, and his son BJ Morgan.
