Peter Corbett Morgan

Peter Corbett Morgan, age 80, passed away January 14, at home in Sisters. Peter was born to Rosina and Howard Morgan in Washington DC in 1943. He was the oldest of four. His childhood was spent in Oregon with memorable years on their sheep farm in Monmouth and later at the Black Butte Ranch.

He graduated from Portland State University with a degree in English. In 1966 Peter married Virginia Morley and they had three daughters. After serving in the Peace Corps, Peter was a reporter for the Bend Bulletin, Associated Press, and The Oregonian. The family settled on a farm in Neskowin, Oregon, where Peter had a successful career as the co-owner of Emmerson-Morgan Construction. He was widowed in 2003 and remarried Katharine Snider Hagerty in 2007.

Peter was well-traveled, a great storyteller, an elegant writer and inquisitive reader. He was a passionate student of Oregon ranch history. He loved hiking and camping all over Oregon, and especially along its iconic rivers, the Metolius, Deschutes, Imnaha, Snake, Owyhee, John Day and our local Whychus Creek.

He is survived by wife Katharine, his sister Sarah Corbett Morgan, his three daughters, Jennifer Mondragon, Elizabeth Morgan, and Amanda Zerr, two stepsons Simon and Finn Hagerty, and eight grandchildren. Please join us in remembering and honoring Peter. He was a loving husband, father, brother, grandfather, and friend, and is deeply missed.

A celebration of life is planned in Neskowin on May 26.
