Although Tim Morgan works for the City of Cornwall, his thoughts are always at home with his wife, the former Michele Letford, and his daughters Sydney and Eryn.
Born at the Morgan homestead in Osnabruck Centre and educated at the Rothwell-Osnabruck School, he offered his talents to the City of Cornwall at an early age.
An outdoorsman at heart, the Ingleside resident spends his spare time fishing and hunting.
Although he doesn’t claim to be a high-profile athlete, he did excel in the high jump at grade school. He has done a bit of hockey and learned basketball under the tutelage of Bob Thompson, the longtime and talented coach for the Rothwell Lancers. “Bob knew his basketball and many of us gained a lot of knowledge playing for him,” Tim said.
In the winter Tim coaches the South Stormont novice hockey team. “I have some pretty talented kids there,” he said. “The trouble is to get their attention long enough to tell them that they have potential. At seven and eight it is difficult to band them together as a team. But once I get them concentrating they do very well.”
