Malvern, England, Tuesday 21st
Peter H. G. Morgan passed away
peacefully yesterday following a brief illness.
His wife Heather and other
members of the family were with him. He was a few days from his 84th birthday.
Peter Morgan, known
affectionately to all in the Morgan world simply as ‘PM’ was involved in every
aspect of the origin and development of the legendary Morgan marque from 1950
onwards. He worked side by side with the founder of the Company, his father,
H.F S. Morgan, from a very young age, firstly at the old Factory and then at
its present site on Pickersleigh Road, Malvern Link, England.
PM took over the company reins
with his father's passing in 1959 and ran the company with legendary kindness
and charm until he turned over operational responsibility to his son Charles
in 1999. He continued to chair the Board, and visited the factory on a daily
basis until shortly before his death.
Often acknowledged as a perfect
English gentleman, Peter Morgan was full of unbridled enthusiasm for life and
for the cars his family builds. He will be sadly missed by all who had the
pleasure of knowing him, and by many thousands of motoring enthusiasts whose
lives have been enhanced by Morgan sports cars.
We have received a number of
requests from people wishing to register their personal respects, condolences
and memories on the passing of Peter Morgan, or 'PM' as he was known by
everyone from the factory floor to the leaders of the world's Automotive
Industry. Please visit our
Condolences Message Board.
Arrangements for the funeral and
tributes will be announced shortly.
