John Morgan


On Jan. 8, 2017, John Morgan was finally able to find the peace that he yearned for so furiously in his too-short life. Born Nov. 29, 1986, at the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital, John attended the Edgartown Elementary School and Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School.

John was technologically gifted, whether the task at hand involved wrenching on a bicycle or rebuilding a computer, and he found enjoyment in both. He was quite the wizard, and has been described by his brother as “too smart for his own good.”

John was a lover of music and an avid Boston sports fan, particularly the Red Sox and Patriots. He was rarely seen without a red B cap adorning his head. He was quite the audiophile, finding particular joy in hip-hop and electronic music. He was very talented in music production and creating beats.

To those closest to him, John will be remembered for his wry, borderline-appropriate sense of humor. Though his off-the-cuff one-liners and ongoing quiet commentary could only be caught by those within very close earshot, they were well worth the proximity. In the past few years, he delved into memoir writing, and his well-crafted stories were both hilarious and bittersweet.

John continues to be fiercely loved by those he has left behind, including his mother, Barbara Morgan; grandparents Ted and Floss Morgan; brother Dylan Morgan; sister-in-law Nili Morgan; his beloved nephews and niece, Ethan, Aaron, and Tibie Morgan; as well as numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.

A celebration of John’s life will be planned for the spring. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Martha’s Vineyard Community Services, 111 Edgartown Road, Vineyard Haven, MA 02568.
