There was only one Sam Morgan and it's no surprise. The world probably could not have managed two. I was honored and privileged to have him as both a business associate and a friend. We shared good times together and faced some tough ones, too. Throughout our decades of business and friendship, he remained true to himself and true to his friends. He loved his family deeply and always worked for their benefit. He was an honorable man and these days that's saying a lot. Sam saw the world and, happily, the world saw him...a good guy. Connie, John, Tom - my heart is sad for you, but weren't we all lucky to have him as long as we did! His memory is a blessing. May God comfort you. With love and prayers..... pb

My thoughts and prayers are with the Morgan family. What a great guy and legend in the industry.

When I was just getting started in the tractor business, Sam called and needed a particular Kubota tractor that we had in stock. I asked my Dad (David Beaver) about whether we should let him have it or not. Dad looked at me matter-of-factly and said "Of course we will, that's Sam Morgan. He helps us every chance he gets. We always take care of Sam!". Sam has been a friend for many years since that time. I was fortunate enough to gain a few nuggets of wisdom from him over the years. He was always happy to contribute to my success. Rest in peace, Sam Morgan.
