Barber Dave Morgan has left Dave's Clip Joint on the corner of Old Landing Road and Mitchell Street in Millsboro to set up shop trimming the Lord's beard as angels assemble for a turn in the chair. Sunday, September 26th Dave passed away peacefully at home with his wife, Thelma Louise (Lou) nearby. Born December 26, 1939, Dave was the youngest child of Carl and Leona Morgan and proceeded in death by his youngest daughter Lori Morgan.
He is survived by his wife of 51 years Lou, two daughters Wendy Hitch and Jeannie Heck, eleven grandchildren Bryan Marvel, Wayne Morgan, Joshua Lee, Jesse Lee, Lauren Champlin, Michael Hitch, Charity Truitt, Ethan Truitt, Paden Truitt, Wyatt Truitt and Branden Morgan and eight great grandchildren as well.
Writing an obituary for Dave Morgan is difficult as leading professor of the Institute of Liars there's no telling where the truth ends and tales begin within the stories of this man's life. Could his father do one handed pull ups from the barn rafters? Did he teach his horse to drink beer from long neck bottles with him? Was there really a man with a 20ft ingrown hair in his neck? We may never know. What we do know for certain is he loved his family, dancing, and barbering. Mostly we knew he made the world a happier place with him in it. No man was more capable of providing laughter and love than Dave Morgan.
Dave's final encore is Tuesday, October 5th at Watson Funeral Home from 10am to 12pm for viewing and visitation. A private graveside service and interment will be held at the Millsboro Cemetery. It's our turn as Dave's beloved Georges to tell the stories.
In lieu of flowers donations are being accepted for final arrangement costs.
