Rodney Morgan

Our beloved husband, brother, stepfather, and friends, left us for heaven on April 3, 2024. He was born on May 31, 1952, son of the late Martha and Hermon Morgan. He was the last of their twelve children, the baby of the family, and much loved.

Rodney graduated in 1970 from Davis High School in Yakima, WA, and received an AA Degree from Yakima Valley College. He would go on to enlist in the Marines and serve his country in the Vietnam Conflict. Rodney worked for the Pitzer family at Yakima Grinding, and when moving to Bellaire in 2014, he would work for Auto Value for ten years. 

After being single well into his forties, Rodney met the love of his wife, Madelon Montgomery. They were married on August 15, 1999, and would have been married twenty-five years this August. He will be remembered for his gentle spirit, his big heart, willingness to serve others, and his deep love of God. 

Rodney was a truly accomplished and intelligent man who loved classical music and reading about history, baseball, and J.F.K. He loved spending time with the late Joe Salisbury, his best friend, and their family. He leaves behind his friends Barb McCann, Bill Tuttle, Kenny Sprague, his fellow employees at Auto Value, and his friends from Yakima, Dale and Denise McDuffy, Sherman and Loreta Johnson, the late Bob Poukkola, and Marilyn.

He is preceded in death by both parents, siblings, Marjorie, Juanita, Marcella, Hermon Jr, Ferntella, Bettie Jo, Billy, and Jimmy

Rodney leaves behind his devoted wife Madelon, step-daughter Marisa Wood, three remaining sisters, Waynoka Shellenberger, Shelby McCallum, Jacque Morgan, and children of the heart, Amy Loggett, Ronda Thomas. 

A Memorial Mass will be held for Rodney at St. Luke's Catholic Church on Friday, April 26, at 9 AM.

There will be a Celebration of Life in Yakima, WA, in the future announcement to follow. 

Arrangements are in the care of the Bellaire Chapel of Mortensen Funeral Homes.
