Morgan H. Jackson


Morgan H. Jackson was born Nov. 2, 1942 in Randolph, Utah, to Elmo and Isabell (Jones) Jackson. He passed away Monday, April 5, in Randolph, Utah.

Morgan graduated from Rich County High School in 1961. He went to work for the Forest Service as a range tech from 1963 to 1976. He worked the phosphate mines before returning to his true passion as a range tech for the Forest Service. His goal was to make it 50 years with the Forest Service — he made 48.

He married Bonnie Williams June 8, 1963; they had five children. They later divorced.

He was a cowboy in the truest sense, preferring horseback to any other mode of transportation. He was a lover of the great outdoors, going fishing, camping and gardening. He was proudest of his family.

Morgan will be greatly missed by his children, Robert Jackson, Randy (Jessie) Jackson, Wendy Karma Gilmore, Myrtle (Loren) Jackson and Belva (Deloy) Richman; grandchildren, Tyler (April) Jackson, Morgan Trent (Shannon) Jackson, Tiana (Tony) Gifford, Michaela Hill, Kenny Hill, Cheyann (Cy) Wright, Abbigail Jackson, Trystan Dale Morgan William Jackson, Jonathan (Sarah) Britsch, Robert Britsch and Mary Britsch; eight great-grandchildren;  and numerous nieces and nephews.

He is joined in heaven by his parents; son, Kenny Jackson; brother, Marvin Jackson; sisters, Marjorie Gilmore and Ada Jackson; son-in-law, Daniel Britsch; brothers-in-law, Fred Gilmore and Lloyd Gilmore; and his horse, Smokey.

To dad, a stranger was just a friend he had not met yet.

Funeral services will be at 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 10, at Crandall Funeral Home, 800 Uinta St., in Evanston. Visitation will be Friday evening from 6-8, and one hour prior to services, also at Crandall Funeral Home. Sympathies may be expressed to the family at www.crandallfhevanston.com.
