It is with profound sadness that the Morgan family announces the passing of Eric Hugh Morgan in his 36th year on Friday April 11 at the Sault Area Hospital.  Eric was the loving husband of Heidi ( nee Frech ) and devoted father of Maxwell Morgan.  Beloved son of Bruce and Linda Morgan of Thessalon, Ontario.  Brother to Mike ( Paula ) of Bruce Mines and fun loving uncle to their children Mack and Jake.  Son-in-law to Steve and Gonny Frech of St Joseph Island and brother-in-law of Stefaan Jan.  Eric spent his career as President of Birchland Plywood-Veneer Ltd. and was well respected in the industry.  In his leisure time he enjoyed the outdoors and he especially looked forward to the turning of the leaves so he could go bird hunting with his family.  In keeping with Eric’s wishes there will be a private family service.  Cremation has taken place with spring interment in the family plot at Pine Grove Cemetery.  The family would also like to thank the doctors, nurses and support staff on ICU and 300B of the Sault Area Hospital for their care and compassion.  Donations to the Sault Area Hospital Foundation gratefully accepted.  Funeral arrangements entrusted to Beggs Funeral Home, Thessalon, Ontario  www.beggsfh.com
