A former resident of Ridgewood and long-time member and Chairman of the Ridgewood

volunteering in town. He loved breakfast at the Daily Treat and Friday-night pizza at
Puzos. He was an avid sports fan and enjoyed walks in the county park as well as trips
to the Jersey shore.
Morgan graduated from NYU and Fordham Law School. He practiced law for many
years and was appointed as an Administrative Law Judge at the end of his career. For
the past five years, Morgan was a resident of Medford, NJ and was able to enjoy time
with his family and breakfast moved to the Evergreen in Southampton with extended
family—Tom and Wendy—and pizza—hadn’t found another Puzos—rotated among
several contenders. Morgan enjoyed these past five years in Medford and his drives
through the Pine Barrens and across Route 72 to Long Beach Island with his family.
