Richard Morgan Obituary

 

Richard Morgan a Past President of the Somerset Law Society died on the 10th September aged 71. Richard was born in Taunton where his father was the Second Master at Kings College. Richard went to Radley where he played in the 1st XV Rugby team and also rowed for his school and then onto Bristol University to obtain a Law Degree. At Bristol he continued to play rugger both for the University and the English under 19s as well as rowing there. Sadly his athletic career was to end when he broke his back in an accident involving an armoured car whilst in the Army Officers Training Corps.

 

On leaving the University he joined the firm of Clarke Willmott & Clarke at Taunton where he was articled to Mr John Close. After studying at Gibson and Weldon at Guildford he passed his qualifying examinations remaining with his firm and later becoming a Partner. He dealt with private client work including commercial conveyancing. He was a keen member of the Somerset Law Society which then had a thriving young members group.

 

After nearly twelve years suffering health problems, with which he reacted in his unfailing cheerfulness and good humour, he was diagnosed with a large benign brain tumour. This was removed after a 14 hour operation and Richard returned to work later deciding to retire as a Partner and work as a locum for firms in the Taunton area until he was 60.

 

In his retirement he continued with his interest in the Army Cadet Force rising to the rank of Lt-Colonel. He also played a strong part in local affairs being a Member and later Chairman of his local Parish Council. He was also a very capable singer and sang not only in his Church Choir but also the Taunton Male Voice Choir. Richard leaves behind a widow and two daughters.
