Andre’ (Andy) H. Morgan, age 77, went to be with his Savior and Lord Jesus Christ January 10, 2023 at Shepherd of the Valley Care Center in Casper. Andre” (Andy) was born October 8, 1945 to Harry and Alberta Morgan in Hutchinson, Kansas. His birth name was Henry Lee Morgan, but it was legally changed in 1975 to Andre’ Henri Morgan. Andy and his twin brother, Harry Lee Morgan, graduated from Lawrence High School in Lawrence Kansas in 1963. In 1966 Andy earned an Associate’s Degree as Machinist from the Vocational School at Pittsburg State College in Pittsburg, Kansas.

Andy served in the Kansas Air National Guard from 1970 to 1976, stationed in Lawrence Kansas, doing reconnaissance work and working on the Red Eye Missile. In 1976 he moved to Casper and began working as a machinist for Westinghouse and other companies. He then worked 15 years at WOTCO and a few years at EXCAL before retiring in 2007. After retiring, Andy spent his time using his machinist skills and unique creativity in creating many ingenious metal models and sculptures.

Initially, after moving to Wyoming, Andy did a lot of hiking in the Big Horn and Wind River Mountains. In his own words he stated: “Awesome! I love Wyoming!” He wrote: “It was in the stunning beauty of the Central Rockies that I came to perceive God, Jesus, and the Beautiful Creator. My greatest reward and honor was my salvation in Jesus Christ, October 4, 1977.” Andy also wrote: “my greatest passion in life is intimacy with my Heavenly Father, with Jesus Christ, and the resident genius of Heaven and Earth, Holy Spirit. Ephesians 3:14-21 is pretty much my lifestyle.” As a spiritual vocation in life, Andy viewed himself as an intercessor prayer warrior. His close friend, Brian Gish would have a weekly prayer time in Andy’s house.

Due to health problems in the last couple of years, both of his lower legs had to be amputated and he became wheelchair bound. So, he chose his new home as Shepherd of the Valley Care and Rehabilitation Center. His goal was to work toward rehabilitation to walk again with artificial legs. He began to make good progress on that goal, but it was interrupted by more health issues. In spite of this, he encouraged some of the residents of the nursing home to do crafts, using their creativity along with creating many artful creations of his own. Andy and his roommate, Lloyd, became volunteer caretakers of the outdoor Rose Garden where they spent much of their afternoons in beautifying it and decorating it. He became the President of the Resident’s Council, directing the monthly meetings at Shepherd of the Valley. Andy also was invited to share sermons once a month at the Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church. His last sermon, from his wheel chair, was just two days before he passed away. After his most recent time in the hospital, Central Wyoming Hospice started to be involved in his nearing end of life. But he still rallied to the cause of being in church this last Sunday. Many of the residents and staff at the Shepherd of the Valley home became close friends with Andy and mentioned that his loss has caused a big hole in their hearts. But they rejoice in his graduation to his eternal home.

Andy never married. After moving to Casper, he became unofficially adopted into the family of Richard Culbertson’s. So, daughter, Melody Moore and her family, and the sons, Michael Culbertson and his family, Jonathan Culbertson and his family, and Kevin Culbertson all refer to Andy as “Uncle Andy”. Andy always had a tremendous positive influence on everyone he met and came in contact with.
Other family members surviving Andy include his twin brother Harry Morgan of Lawrence, Kansas and his daughter, (Andy’s niece) Lily Morgan.

Family members preceding Andy in death include his father and mother, Harry and Alberta Morgan, his brothers David Morgan and Lawrence Morgan, and nephew Phillip Morgan.

Andy’s request was for no funeral service, however a Celebration of Life will be held in his honor for family and friends on Monday, January 16th at 11 AM in the chapel at Restoration Church at 411 So. Walsh Drive in Casper. Any donations in his honor may go to the Wyoming Rescue Mission.
