Walter W. Morgan Engineer, draftsman

August 26, 1991

A graveside service for Walter Wesley Morgan, an engineer and draftsman for Western Electric in Dundalk for 33 years, will be at 3 p.m. tomorrow at Meadowridge Memorial Park, Meadowridge Road and U.S. 1 in Elkridge.

Mr. Morgan, 58, died Friday at Johnston Willis Hospital in Midlothian, Va., of a brain tumor.

A longtime Fallston resident, Mr. Morgan moved to Midlothian six years ago to take a job with AT&T Technologies in Richmond, Va., when AT&T closed the Western Electric facility in Dundalk.

Born in Baltimore, Mr. Morgan graduated in 1951 from the Polytechnic Institute and became a draftsman for Western Electric in 1952.

He was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1954 and served in Germany until 1956, when he returned to Western Electric.

Mr. Morgan received a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from the Johns Hopkins University in 1972.

He was a member of the Dundalk Lions Club and Trinity Lutheran Church in Joppa, and loved skiing and power boating.

He is survived by his wife of 38 years, the former Joyce Novak; two daughters, Belinda Arfaras of Perry Hall and Donna Keiser of Joppatowne; a sister, Edna Peddicord Nelson of Florida; a brother, William S. Morgan of Ferndale; and three grandchildren.

Services will be at 11:30 a.m. today at the Redeemer Lutheran Church, North Arch and Redbridge Road, Richmond.

Contributions may be made to Johnston-Willis Hospital hospice program, 1401 Johnston-Willis Drive, Richmond, Va. 23235.
