Judah Marshall Morgan

Judah Marshall Morgan, 4, of Hamlet, passed away unexpectedly at 3:57 a.m., Monday, October 11, 2021 in his home.


He was born June 17, 2017, in La Porte, Indiana.


Judah was raised as a happy, beautiful and energetic little boy. He was also bright and funny. Judah loved fruit and popcorn on family movie nights, and playing with his siblings. At the young age of 18 months, he knew his right hand from his left hand. He was an intelligent child who learned very quickly and enjoyed teaching others about the things he knew.  Judah loved hats and smiling for photos. He loved the family dogs, Thor and Willow, the park, jumping into puddles, and riding his bike. Judah loved to sing and dance, and some of his favorite shows were Paw Patrol, PJ Mask, and Magic School Bus. His favorite character was from the movie Cars, Lightning McQueen.


Judah’s big brown eyes, bright smile, and beautiful curly blonde hair caught everyone’s attention where ever he went. He was the most wonderful gift to everyone who met him and a sweet boy, who was loved by many.
