Robert P. Morgan

June 27, 1952 — December 2, 2023

Prairie du Chien

PRAIRIE DU CHIEN - Robert P. “Bob” Morgan, age 71, passed away on December 2, 2023, peacefully in his sleep. He was born on June 27, 1952; the son of Ralph and Mary Lou (Moris) Morgan. Robert graduated from West Grant High School in 1970 and enlisted in the United States Navy and was activated during the Vietnam War. He was united in marriage to Tracy (Jensen) Johnson in 1981 and later to Connie (Toberman) Morgan in 2009. Robert was a life long trucker, retiring in June 2023, and put millions of miles on his semi, traveling all over the United States. Along with many stories, he experienced the beauty of our country, a country he was so proud of. He had many life long friends and was the best story teller. Robert loved the Wisconsin Badgers, Green Bay Packers, and watching his grandson, Finn, play football! He also was an avid outdoorsman, loved fishing the Mississippi and hunting with his kids, both he got to do in the last month. Above all, Roberts entire life revolved around his children and grandchildren, who he loved more than anything in the world. He will be remembered for his generous heart, his ability to bring laughter to a room, and his dad hugs with an “I love you” every time!

He is survived by his wife Connie; Robert’s children, daughter-in-laws and grandchildren: Jesse (Ashley) Morgan and their two children: Finn and Maci, and Josiah (Amy) Borden and their daughter Ella; step-children: Cory Schurz, his children: Cody, Amy, and Jacob; Chris (Dawn) French, their children Brennan and Brooklyn, and Ashley (Jeremy) Gulick, their children Madelyn and Odin; his first wife Tracy Johnson; his loving brothers and sisters: Barbara Meng, Linda (Butch) Quick, Mary Redman, Dorothy (Dave) Holtz, Donna (Mike) McKinney, Betty (Jon) Cooley, Kathy (Ron) Knapp, Patrick Morgan, Michael (Cindy) Morgan, Rita Morgan, Bill (Nancy) Morgan, and Christy (Brian) Krause; sisters-in-law: Jeanne Morgan and Diane Morgan; brother-in-law, Terry Laufenberg; and many nieces and nephews. His best friends: Robert Skrede, Patrick LaValle, Howard Gifford, and Thomas Noethe.

Robert was preceded in death by his parents: Ralph and Mary Lou; his step-father, Art Sprosty; and four siblings: James Morgan, Laurie Laufenberg, Dennis Morgan and Philip Morgan; brother-in-law, Dave Redman.
