The Reverend Dr. Lewis Morgan Obituary

The Reverend Dr. Lewis H. Morgan, 93, passed away early Sunday morning, February 5, 2023, after a brief illness.  He joins his parents, 5 brothers and 2 sisters, and many dear friends who no doubt were there to greet him at the end of his earthly journey. His wit, compassion and hugs will be missed.  He spent 35 years pastoring churches in the Tidewater area and Northern Virginia. At the time of his death, he and his wife of 64 years Joyce, were residents at The Chesapeake in Newport News. Besides Joyce, he leaves daughters Donna Thomas (Mike) and Lorie Battiata (Joe), 5 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren.  Sadly, the great-grandchildren will not get to see the flying turtle or be checked for loose heads.
Many thanks to the loving and compassionate staff at The Chesapeake who treated Lewis like a member of their family, the myriad of nurses and doctors at Riverside Hospital and the staff at Medi Home Hospice. 
A service of Remembrance and Thanksgiving will be held Saturday, February 18 at 2 pm at Tabernacle United Methodist Church in Poquoson. There will be a reception following the service at the church. Instead of flowers, and at Lewis’s request, please consider making a donation in his memory to Virginia United Methodist Homes or the American Red Cross.
