Sharif Keenan Morgan, 49, of Charleston, Illinois, formerly of Brooklyn, New York is no longer in pain and passed from this life on April 14, 2023 at his residence. Adams Funeral Chapel is assisting the family with arrangements. There will be no services at this time.
Sharif was born on April 6, 1974 in Brooklyn, New York, the son of Ronald and Dee (Barnes) Morgan. He married Gwendolyn Morgan on November 10, 2005. She loved him dearly and affectionately referred to Sharif as Reefer. He is survived by his wife, son Dolyn Ray of Charleston, twin daughters Kristmas Morgan and Kathrena Morgan of Charleston, grandson Elias Ray of Charleston; his parents of Las Vegas, Nevada; sisters Nayana Clark, also of Las Vegas, and Tia Morgan of Durham, North Carolina; brother Kevin Morgan of Reno, Nevada; his best friend and brother in life, Charlie Quinn of Florida; and several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews. Sharif was preceded in death by his grandparents Rachel and William Barnes, aunt JoJo Barnes, uncle Patrick Morgan, and uncle and aunt Billy and Carol Barnes.
Sharif was a graduate of Valley High School in Las Vegas and was a proud U.S. Marines veteran who had bravely served two tours in Iraq. He earned a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and formerly worked as a probation officer for the Douglas County Court System.
There were many things that Sharif enjoyed: fishing, swimming, hiking, traveling, and cooking, to name just a few. He was also fond of luxury cars and was a loyal fan of the New York Giants, the Yankees, and the Vegas Golden Knights. He enjoyed talking politics and fiercely loved his country. Sharif’s family will always remember him as a good man and good provider who was very well-put-together. It was very important to him to be a good father, and of all the things he loved, what he really loved most was his family and his children.
Thoughtful donations in Sharif’s memory may be made to Adams Funeral Chapel to assist the family with expenses and may be mailed to Adams Funeral Chapel, 2330 Shawnee Drive, Charleston, Illinois 61920.
