Wilmer Morgan, Jr

Wilmer C. “Junior” Morgan, Jr., 69, of Cambridge passed away peacefully Friday, July 7, 2017 at Mallard Bay Care Center, Cambridge after a lengthy illness.
Born in Waldorf, Maryland February 23, 1948, he was a son of the late Dorothy and Wilmer C. Morgan, Sr.
After attending the local schools, Junior worked the tobacco fields until the age of 21 when he decided to become a waterman. Together with his companion of over thirty years, Marie “Monnie” Dryden, they worked the local waters tonging for oysters in the winter and crabbing during the summer till his health began to fail.
Junior enjoyed country music and loved to dance. He was an excellent pool player and spending time with his friends at the American Legion Post #91 was one of his favorite past times. A gentle passionate man, he cared for all living creatures and was always fond of pets especially his dogs Star and Snowball.
Surviving besides his companion Monnie are his stepchildren Ann Aranda and husband Salomon, Raymond Dryden, Rose Dryden, Agnes Dominquez and husband Jorge, Wayne Dryden and wife Kristy; siblings Eva Jones, Thomas “Tommy” W. Morgan, James “Jimmy” Morgan and wife Sharon, Dottie Tracy; twelve step grandchildren and seven step great-grandchildren; special nephews Scotty Murphy and Eddie Jones along with several other nieces and nephews.

So many happy memories of visiting Uncle Jr & Aunt Marie's house on the eastern shore, going crabbing was so exciting until I realized we had to go out in the middle of the night, I slept on the boat until the sun came up, and then we were done for the day :) Uncle Jr was such a strong man, with the biggest gentle heart, he will be remembered, loved and missed forever. Marie, thank you for loving him in sickness and in health, you were his love and soulmate, we love you so much and are praying for you and the kids

So sorry to hear this. What a great neighbor he was to us, always a kind word and laughing, joking. I'll always remember him sitting on the porch waving at everyone who went by. Prayers and love to the family.

My dear wife and I would like to extend our condolences for the loss of your loved one (Proverbs 17:17). At difficult times like this we realize how precious and fragile life can surely be (James 4:14). As your family and friends comfort one another, as a neighbor we pray you also be comforted by the sure hope the Bible gives us for all those who have died (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4). As recorded in the Bible, Jesus promised that one day he was going to bring back to life all those who have died (John 5:28, 29). That is why he encourages all of us to exercise faith in that promise, the life that Jesus gave in our behalf, and be blessed as we see that promise fulfilled (John 11:25; 3:16; 6:40;James 2:17). The Bible makes it clear that death is an "enemy" not only to mankind, but also to Almighty God (1 Corinthians 15:26). That is also why God promises to remove forever all the pain, suffering, wickedness, and death that mankind has had to endure for thousands of years (Revelation 21:3-5; Psalm 37:10,11,29). At that time soon, as the Bible indicates, both the living and the dead who are brought back to life will enjoy life, everlasting life, as God originally purposed for this earth thousands of years ago in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 1:28; Jeremiah 29:11). What a glorious day that will be for mankind who are doing what God asks of us, namely that we simply do His Will, not our own (1 John 2:17; 5:3; Proverbs 3:5,6). Please read and meditate on all these scriptures in your Bible and be comforted and blessed (Psalm 1:1-3; John 17:3). Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
