Obituary Text 

Morgan Carl Anderson, 84, died Sunday, October 6, 2019 at the Dallas VA Medical Center following a brief illness. He was surrounded by family.


He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Betty (Kuykendall) Anderson; his son Toby Anderson and his wife, Kimberly Anderson; his daughter Carey Tiff and her husband, Bruce Tiff; his brother, Ronnie Anderson and his wife, Celia Anderson; his brother-in-law Larry Kuykendall and his wife Debi; his grandchildren Hayley, Chase and his wife Amy, and Cameron Anderson; and Tony, Grant, and Preston Tiff; and many other family members and friends.


He is preceded in death by his parents, Rufus and Loraine (Teague) Anderson, his sister Lora Bell Waddley, and his son Todd Anderson.


Morgan was born on August 18, 1935 in Vernon, Texas. He spent his childhood all over Texas and married the love of his life on January 27, 1961 in Wichita Falls, Texas. He was a Major in the Air Force and Vietnam war veteran, and a gifted carpenter. He and Betty spent their days traveling in the motor home, riding their motorcycle, and spending time with family and friends at Lake Tawakani. Morgan’s booming voice, his colorful stories, and his firm hugs will be greatly missed by everyone he leaves behind.


His family is grateful for their time with him before his passing, spent sharing memories, getting practical advice for life without him, and looking forward to reuniting with him in Heaven.


A graveside service will be held on October 11 at the Dallas Fort Worth National Cemetery at 0900 am. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Morgan’s honor to St Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
