February 8, 1951 - March 28, 2021
Benny Thomas Morgan, age 70 of Lilburn, GA, passed away Sunday the 28th of March, 2021. He was preceded in death by his mother Eva Grace Morgan and his father Elton Caroll Morgan. He is survived by his two loving children, Benjamin “Bean” Thomas Morgan and Eva “Sheba” Morgan Retana; his three granddaughters, Gabby, Elizabeth, and Alyssa; his sister, Melanie Reid; a host of other relatives, and many more loving friends. Benny was a Gwinnett County native with a rebellious spirit who defied convention and expectations, beginning with being born on his mother’s birthday. He attended Central Gwinnett School, where he acquired many of his dearest lifelong friends. Benny lived an interesting life and had a story for every situation, including the time he brought what he thought to be a dead garden snake, but which turned out to be a live copperhead, to school thinking he would earn extra credit in science class— only to be sent home from school in trouble. Benny served proudly and Honorably in the Georgia Army National Guard, where he trained as a CH-47 helicopter mechanic and earned a Sharpshooter marksmanship qualification, encouraging his lifelong interest in firearms. Benny was very mechanically inclined and always worked with his hands, whether rebuilding cars with his son, remodeling an Antebellum mansion, or working as an electrician. When Benny became a grandfather, his granddaughters were his pride and joy, although they frequently told Pawpaw to stop eating so many sweets! Per Benny’s request, there will be no services. His children encourage those who loved Benny to reach out and share their own stories of Benny and celebrate his life with them.
