Sheldon was born to Harold Wayne Morgan, a Navy Veteran and LaVern Imogene Jenkins, a descendant of the Cherokee nation. He had one brother, Dan Morgan (Redmond, OR) and one sister, Gayle Morgan Zechmann (Plano, TX). He was proud of who he was and where he came from; he cherished his heritage.
Sheldon grew up in Caldwell, Idaho and graduated from Caldwell High School in 1970. As a young man he joined the Marine Corps and honorably served in Hawaii as a court reporter. He loved to talk about court cases and the adventures he was able to be a part of on and off the island. After the Marines, Sheldon enjoyed his solitude civilian life by riding his Harley sportster, snow skiing, piloting small aircraft and hunting. He was an avid hunter and fisherman throughout his life.
He married Carol Lynn Brewer in 1978, and soon after, had their first son Todd Wayne Morgan in 1979. After working at Caldwell Paint and Glass for some time, the family followed the work and ended up in Reno, Nevada where their second son, Tyler Lee Morgan, was born in 1981. Soon after, Sheldon moved back to Caldwell and built some homes near Fairview Golf Course. With the sale of one of those homes, Sheldon was able to start a business, Custom Glass. As Custom Glass defined his career, family and the love of the Lord defined who he was. Sheldon was always happy to share adventures in the outdoors, and if his family was happy, he was happy.
As Sheldon’s family grew up and left home, he and Carol decided to create new adventures like Jeeping in Moab, Utah and fishing in Vancouver Island, Canada. They made wonderful friends during their adventures wherever they went in life.
Sheldon was a man of God, husband, father, grandpa, outdoorsman, and formidable man of principle. He will be remembered by his generosity, towering presence, meticulous and ethical business practice, and firm handshake.
Sheldon was survived by his wife, two sons, and seven grandchildren. We will all miss him dearly.
