  • OBITUARY

    Phillip Morgan, 87, of Atlanta, Georgia, died October 12, 2022 at the William Breman Jewish Home. He was married to his college sweetheart, Mireille Morgan, originally of Brussels, Belgium, for 65 years, and son of Rebecca and Herman Morgan. He is preceded in death by his younger brother, Norman Morgan, of Richmond, VA, and survived by his sister, Beverly Robinson, of El Paso, Tx. He is survived by his children: Robert (Sandra) Morgan, of Spokane, Washington, Richard (Lynn) Morgan, of Johns Creek, GA, and Marilyn (Jonathan) Arkin, of Sandy Springs, GA; and his 8 grandchildren: Monica, Josh and Jacob Morgan; Lindsey (Zacharie) Bryant, Jonathan and David Morgan; Ross Cooper and Adam Arkin.  

    Phillip was born in Richmond, Virginia on June 5, 1935. He attended Thomas Jefferson High School and graduated from the University of Miami. Phillip was an avid tennis player, and often spoke of his fond memories of working with his first tennis coach, Sam Woods. He took on all comers and never flinched in his belief he could beat them. He was on a team that made it to the grounds of Flushing Meadows, New York and played at the United States Tennis Association facility where the US Tennis Open is held annually.  In addition to tennis, Phillip was a huge fan of his alma mater, The University of Miami Hurricanes, and its sports teams, especially the football team. 

    After his graduation from the University of Miami, Phillip served as a Lieutenant in the US Army. After completing his Army service, he returned to Richmond to work with his father and brother in the family furniture business, Windsor House Furniture. Phillip was always interested in business, especially after having majored in the subject in college. 

    In addition to playing tennis and being an avid sports fan, Phillip was an avid reader and started playing flute in his older years. As a youngster, he was on a radio show in Richmond where he sang, and he always loved the music from the Frank Sinatra years. He also loved to dance with his loving wife, Mireille, every time he heard a band playing his kind of music. 

    He also loved his pets, especially his dogs Hercules and Biscuit. He was known to his grandchildren as Peepaw and Grandpa Candy. His grandchildren truly loved and admired him. He will also be missed by his Thursday lunch buddies, Denise Padrun and Debbie Present, who ate lunch with Phillip and Mireille every week. He was very thankful for the exceptional staff and social workers at the Jewish Towers as well as at the William Breman Jewish Home, where he spent his last days. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that those wishing to honor Phillip make a donation to benefit The Jewish Towers at www.jewishhomelife.org.

    It was an honor to know Phillip and his lovely wife when I worked at the Jewish Tower. He was such a pleasant gentleman and a wonderful asset to the community. I know he will be missed greatly by so many.
