Obituary for Tommy Gene "Tom" Morgan

Tommy Gene “Tom” Morgan, of Noble, Oklahoma, passed away January 2, 2020 at the age of 65. He was born September 26, 1954 in Norman, Oklahoma to Gene Byron & Betty Alene (Woodrow) Morgan. 

Tom grew up in Norman and attended Norman High School, graduating in the class of 1972. He went on to attend the University of Oklahoma and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Law Enforcement Administration. For most of his working career, Tom was respected as a self-employed Petroleum Landman 

Tom enjoyed OU football, farming, hunting and fishing. Tom was an avid hunter the majority of his life, but in the last several years he preferred to enjoy the outdoors by watching and photographing wildlife. Scott and Carol Bauman filled his heart by allowing him to tend to their farm and work with their land and animals. He had an eclectic taste in music from Taylor Swift, the Beach Boys, and Shania Twain to Elton John, as long as it was LOUD. Tom also had a passion for weather and his favorite pastime was to watch the storms come in. His family always counted on him to send out severe weather alerts. 

Tom’s grandparents, Mary and Tommy Woodrow, blessed him with a plethora of cousins, aunts and uncles that fostered his great sense of humor. They often rode motorcycles or 4-wheelers together growing up and regarded him as the planner and researcher and when a trip or get-together was planned. Tom is survived by his best friend and birddog Boomer, 1 son, Mack Morgan, of Norman; 1 daughter, Macey Stewart & husband, Travis, of Norman; 3 grandchildren, Jaden Chapel-Morgan, Tesa Stewart and Daniel Stewart; his mother, Betty Morgan, of Norman; 2 sisters, Mary Hawkins, of Noble, and Christine Sarff, of Norman. The family would like to thank his aunt and uncle Janie and Marc Murphy, nephew Billy Sarff, niece Jenny Shuman, cousins Chad Murphy and Rusty Grissom and a multitude of extended family that he cared for so deeply. He is preceded in death by his father, Lt. Col. Gene Morgan. 

Memorial Services will be held at 10:00 AM, Wednesday, January 8, 2020 at Wildwood Community Church, located at 1501 24th Avenue NE, in Norman, OK. Services are under the direction of the John M. Ireland Funeral Home & Chapel, Moore, OK.

Randall's Story

 Randall Clark Hackler passed away in his family's home in Norman, OK on November 24, 2017. Randy had been through a long struggle with cancer. His father Maurice Hackler died two days before, they walked together into the afterlife. Randy was born April 3rd, 1954 in Wichita, Kansas to Maurice and Robbie Hackler.

Randy left Norman during the summers to travel. He woke up in his 1957 MGA convertible beneath the Grand Tetons in Jackson, WY one morning in 1974. He had found his place. For the rest of his life he would travel between the two very opposite worlds. He loved fly fishing and backpacked into the Wind River Range every year except two between 1982 and 2017, many times by himself. He took great care of everything he owned and used the same camp stove for every single trip. Randy married Debby West on January 25th, 1987. Their daughter, Coral (Cory) Elise was born on June 10th, 1987. Every year on her birthday he would tell his beloved daughter that it was the anniversary of the best day of his life. Randy was a true friend to many people. He was always good at staying in touch and he made a point to visit his friends across the country. Predeceased by his mother, Robbie, and his father Maurice. He is survived by his daughter Coral Amayi and husband James-Garrett of Cochise, Arizona; sister Trudy Sickles and husband Don of Norman, Oklahoma; his niece Anne Maguire and husband Reed of Tulsa, Oklahoma; and his nephew Garrett Sickles of Denver, Colorado; along with several cousins.
