James Harvey Morgan, Sr, 79, of Mechanicsville MD peacefully passed away at home on August 22, 2022.

Harvey was born on June 25, 1943, to John and Elizabeth Morgan in Oraville, MD.

In 1944 he met Elizabeth Morgan, his childhood friend who later became his wife. Harvey and Elizabeth were married on April 20, 1963, and went on to have four children: James Harvey, Jr (Linda) of Mechanicsville, MD, Debra Tippett (Andy) of California, MD, Rebecca Norris of Mechanicsville, MD, and Wendy Veney of California, MD.

Harvey was always a hard worker. He left school at an early age to help in his father’s barn building business during the summers and would work in the winter oystering with Bunny Morgan. Later he went on to work for J & T homes for several years until opening his own business, James H Morgan Building Contractors in 1971. A business he was well known and respected in. Harvey retired in 2021 after 50 years in his field.

While retired, Harvey had time to enjoy his favorite hobbies: watching NASCAR, football, and westerns, playing cards, taking trips to the mountains, and spending time with his family, whom he loved very much. Harvey enjoyed spending the fourth of July with all his friends and family. Every year for 30 years he looked forward to throwing a huge party at his home on Queentree Rd that everyone enjoyed. This was a tradition started by his father that Harvey proudly carried on. Seeing and spending time with his family was the most important thing to him.

Harvey was someone you could always count on, he was always there with a helping hand for his family and friends, whom he loved deeply. He never asked for anything in return, except for togetherness and love. 

Harvey was proceeded in death by his parents, John and Elizabeth Morgan. Siblings, John Mitchell Morgan Jr, William Clifton Morgan, Imogene Summers, and Melissa Morgan. As well as, son in laws, Frankie Norris and Eric Veney.

  1. Wonderful Man! He built my house. Most say building a home is hard & they would never do it again. He made the process so smooth. I would build 100 houses with him. May God Bless Mr. Morgan & his entire family.
