James Leslie Morgan died peacefully on Friday, Oct. 23 in his home in Tallahassee surrounded by his wife, Elizabeth, his four children, David, Leslie, Becky and Lee, his brother, Tom, and his sister-in-law, Mae. He was born on Dec. 9, 1926 in Augusta Ga, to Earl and Ollieve Morgan. He grew up in Jacksonville, Fl. and graduated from Andrew Jackson High School.He graduated from the University of Florida. Jim was a U.S. Army veteran who served in Berlin during the post-WWII occupation and during the airlift, and then was called into the service again during the Korean conflict, where he was awarded a bronze star for valor for his actions in the battle of White Horse Mountain.Following his active service, he continued in the Army reserves and retired after 35 years as a Lt. Colonel. After leaving active service, he went to work in the University of Florida's admissions office before moving to Tallahassee in 1970 for a position as MIS Director for the Board of Regents, heading up the state university system's computer centers.After his retirement from the Board of Regents, Jim and Elizabeth moved to Malibu, CA, where he was a Vice President at Pepperdine University. He also served the Call Street and Meridian Woods Churches of Christ as an elder. After his final retirement from Pepperdine, Jim returned to Tallahassee and focused on his growing extended family, and rekindled his love of travel. To generations of neighborhood children in Florida and California, he was the ultimate toymaker, putting his love of woodworking to use making all manner of swords, shields, trains and dollhouses.

A FEW GOOD MEN

Verse 1:
What this dying world could use is a willing Man of God
Who dares to go against the grain and works without applause;
A man who'll raise the shield of Faith, protecting what is pure;
Whose love is strong and gentle; a man whose word is sure.

Verse 2:
God doesn't need an Orator who knows just what to say;
He doesn't need authorities to reason Him away;
He doesn't need an army to guarantee a win;
He just needs a Few Good Men.

Chorus:
Men full of Compassion, who Laugh and Love and Cry-
Men who'll face Eternity and aren't afraid to die-
Men who'll fight for Freedom and Honor once again-
He just needs a Few Good Men.

Verse 3:
He calls the broken derelict whose life has been renewed;
He calls the one who has the strength to stand up for the Truth.
Enlistment lines are open and He wants you to come in-
He just needs a Few Good Men.

Chorus:
Men full of Compassion, who Laugh and Love and Cry-
Men who'll face Eternity and aren't afraid to die-
Men who'll fight for Freedom and Honor once again-
He just needs a Few Good Men.

-Chorus 3 times Ending:
He just needs a Few Good Men.

He just needs a Few Good Men.
