Former Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Sharon Morgan Dies at Age 65

Sharon Morgan, 65, of Port Ludlow, Wash., died Wednesday, June 6, in Scottsdale, Ariz., and will be sorely missed by her loving family and many friends she made throughout her accomplished life. She was born Oct. 2, 1946, in Long Branch, N.J., and is survived by her loving family: mother, Sue Goforth; three sisters, Linda Vaughn, Terre Morgan and Charlotte Perry; brother-in-law, John Perry; and sister-in-law, Judy Boesch, of Falls Church. Sharon is also survived by her children, their spouses, and several grandchildren: daughter Susan Constantine and son-in-law, Scott Constantine, and grandson Christopher Morgan; son James Morgan, daughter-in-law Kelly Morgan, grandsons Rory Morgan and Brady Capouch, and granddaughters Hanna Capouch, Jamie Morgan and Kelsey Morgan. 

Sharon lived, laughed and worked all over the United States and the world. She retired in 2004, with a distinguished military career in the Air Force as a Chief Master Sergeant. Sharon began in administration and phased into working as a safety officer. She cooperated with the Drug Enforcement Administration as an intelligence analyst, completing several drug tours around the world. Sharon was one of the first members of the Pentagon’s Declassification Team, and finished her outstanding career by joining the Legislative Liaisons team at the Pentagon, where she created and maintained relationships between Congressional and Executive branch members and the Air Force.

Sharon was an avid runner, making it a point to run in every country she visited, where she met and made global life-long friends. She even ran across the millennium, starting at 10 minutes to midnight and finishing at 10 minutes after.

Sharon loved and cherished all animals and supported many charities including World Wildlife Fund, the Great Dane Rescue and local animal shelters. She also supported environmental causes including the Arbor Day Foundation and the Sierra Club. In lieu of flowers, she requested donations be made to these types of organizations.

Sharon was preceded in death by her beloved father, Paul Morgan; her beloved husband and the love of her life, Eugene Boesch, whom she met while working at the Pentagon; and her beloved niece, Carol Vaughn.

Her life contributed to this world and she has truly left her mark.
