Fred J. Morgan

Alamo resident Fred J. Morgan passed away March 16 in Alamo at the age of 83.

He was born July 15, 1923, in Santa Rosa and was a fourth generation Danville/Alamo resident. His great-grandparents came to the San Ramon Valley in the 1850s. He was a graduate of Fremont High School in Oakland and Golden Gate College in San Francisco. He served in the U.S. Air Force and was a proud World War II veteran. While stationed in England, he met and married his beloved wife, Dorothy (Diane) Fielding. They were married 62 years.

He was employed for many years at Crown Zellerbach and Champion International Paper. After he retired from Champion, he earned his real estate license and worked for a short time at Rossmoor Realty. He was past commander and a 60-year member of American Legion Post 246 in Danville. He was an avid fan of the Oakland Raiders, Oakland A's and Golden State Warriors. He enjoyed coaching adult basketball and participated in Danville Senior Softball and won several trophies for the American Legion in annual Guy Zimmerman Horseshoe Tournaments.

He is survived by his wife Diane; daughters and sons-in-law Jan and Dale Noonkester, and Gloria and Steve Hobaugh; and son and daughter-in-law David and Joyce Morgan; eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren; brothers and sisters-in-law Edward and Emeline Mullikin, and Richard and Betty Mullikin; as well as nieces, nephews and cousins.

A memorial service was held March 30 at Wilson and Kratzer Chapel of San Ramon Valley in Danville. Memorial contributions may be made to the Museum of San Ramon Valley or a favorite charity.
