COLUMBUS, Ga. — The son of Command Sergeant Major Thomas Morgan is hoping to honor his father’s memory.
Morgan was killed last week in a crash on the Oglethorpe Bridge.
In a story you’ll see only on 3 – News 3 sits down with Morgan’s oldest son and shares his campaign to honor his dad’s love of Jeeps.
James Duncan knows his father loved him and his siblings – but he also knows his father loved jeeps almost as much as them.
We sat down with Duncan to talk about why he decided to start a “Go-Fund-Me” page – and why it means so much to his family.
“I wanted to make sure I continued something that he was really passionate on.”
James Duncan is the oldest son of command Sergeant Major Morgan.
He died Tuesday after his Jeep was hit by another car causing it to fall off the Ogelthorpe Bridge.
Duncan wants to honor his father’s memory – but honoring his love of Jeeps.
“I’m just making sure that I had a way to keep his passion going to finish the jeep he was working on for my brother.”
The jeep Morgan was working on for his son is in pieces.
But Duncan wants to use 100% of the money from a Go Fund Me page to finish this project with his brother.
Duncan wants to make sure his brother gets the Jeep his father intended him to have.
He also plans to repair the jeep that was in the accident.
“My goal is to get the jeep he was driving that day completely restored.”
Morgan owned at least three jeeps and Duncan believes this is the best way to honor his father and the hobby he loved.
“This is a way I can keep his passion going. To finish the jeep he was working on for my brother. Keep that project going and see it through.”
