100 Year Old is a 80 Year Knight

Being 100 and 80 years as a Knight is quite an accompttshment. John Morgan, an 80 year member of Council 1409, celebrated his 100th birthday May 23. He joined the Knights in 1941 either at New Albin or Charles City. He has resided in Montana for the tast 40 years but has maintained his membership here in Council 1409.

John was born in New Albin, IA in 1921. He hitchhiked to Williamette Valley, OR to pick apples and then to CA where he worked at Pan Am Aircraft.

John joined the Coast Guard during WWII.

John was called home to Charles City to help his sister Kay Owens when her husband Ray was diagnosed with cancer. Ray had been Grand Knight of our council 1941-1942.

He helped with Ray's business Permastone before buying a bar in 1954 which would become "MORGAN'S TAVERN". He was located in the 700 block of Clark St before losing his building to the tornado of 1968. He relocated to Main St beside CC Press until retiring in 1979. He recalls cooking many meals with the KC's and was a well respected business man of Charles City.

John retired to Montana in 1980 with his wife Darlene (who passed away 10 years ago) and daughter Kathy whom he now resides. Many years were spent fishing and hunting.

If you wish to him send him a note or card:
