James Caryl Morgan, age 65 years, a lifelong East Highgate resident, died Wednesday morning January 15, 2014, at the Fletcher Allen Health Care Facility in Burlington.

Born in St. Albans on May 7, 1948, he was the son of the late Caryl and Eltha (O'Rourke) Morgan. He graduated from Highgate High School and was married on July 22, 2002, to the former June Benoit who survives him.

As a master carpenter Jim was very creative, enjoyed a challenge and could build and fix most anything. In earlier years he worked for the Union Carbide Corporation and also had his own auto body business. He was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed hunting and fishing.

In addition to his wife June of East Highgate, Jim leaves his son, Michael Morgan and Sandra Vera Morgan of Saratoga Springs, NY; his step-daughter, Carolyn Gadouas and husband Gary of Swanton; step-son, Keith Graham and wife Josephina of Franklin; two sisters, Connie Yandow and husband Roland of Morgan and Amy Alverez and husband Dennis of Salt Lake City Utah; a brother Christopher Morgan of Burlington as well as several nieces and nephews.

A gathering of family and friends is being planned for a later date.

Gifts in Jim's memory may be made to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, P.O. Box 4072, Pittsfield, MA 01202.

Arrangements are under the direction of The Kidder memorial Home, 89 Grand Ave., Swanton 05488.
