Frank Morgan

October 16, 1952 — June 22, 2016

Mr. Frank Morgan of Artesia, NM was welcomed into the arms of his Savior on Wednesday, June 22, 2016. Frank was born to William and Ola Mae Morgan in Artesia, NM on October 06, 1952 and was a lifelong resident of the area. Both of his parents have preceded him in death.
Frank Morgan was an intensely funny man, with snappy jocularity and witty banter who loved to indulge his jokester side on your behalf. Rarely did he refer to people by their God given names. He had a knack for bad nicknames which he doled out to everyone indiscriminately. He was an equal opportunist with his humor and was dearly loved by all, including the prey of his lighthearted teasing.
First Baptist Church Artesia was his church home and he was involved in his church community. For five years he helped with the youth group at his church taking the kid's water skiing in the summer or snow skiing in the winter. His involvement with his Sunday school class was one of his truest passions. As a group they delved into the Bible together growing as disciples and in turn discipling others for Christ. He loved the Lord his God with all his heart and strove to be a gospel witness, the witness that bears fruit in their daily lives; a witness of action and not just through words.
Mr. Morgan loved to give support to his friends and family in the form of time. When his son Taylor played football for the Artesia Bulldogs Frank became a member of the Artesia Quarterback Booster Club. He coached Little League, but not just because he liked watching baseball, but because he wanted to support those he loved. He helped to foster an environment of building people, helping them to reach their potential through witty correction and encouragement. Frank loved to watch his team, the Oakland Raiders, much to his family's chagrin. Hunting in New Mexico for bird, elk or deer and fishing in the local rivers and lakes he excelled at everything he did. His main sport was racquet ball. During his time in the Navy he fell in love with the sport. For 35 years it became a regular fixture in his life, playing at the Artesia Racquet Ball and Health center, he formed life long bonds with many of the guys there, playing with them every chance he got.
When Frank was young he had aspirations of becoming a dentist but God had a different plan for him. Frank began helping in his father's business and before long he began his career as an oil producer. In 1992 he and his business partners Mark Murphy and Sealy Cavin formed Strata Producers. He loved the work he did and was immensely proud of his business but Frank never lost sight of the things that were most important to him; his wife Robin and son Taylor. These were the people that defined him and his love for them was the true measure of his success.
Frank is survived by his lovely and caring wife Robin Morgan of Artesia, NM and his son, the pride and joy of his life, Taylor Morgan of San Angelo, TX and his brother Carl Morgan of Mayhill, NM. He is preceded in death by his parents William and Ola Mae Morgan of Artesia NM.
