You were such a fun and loving guy! We had many great times hanging out with friends. Even my little dog (she is usually not a fan of men) cuddled right next to you to take a nap. The Klomans will surely miss you Kevie! Thank you for the good times and laughs. You will forever be in our hearts!
Remembering all the good times with my Knot Friends. Docktails and boat mishaps, forever in our hearts. Prayers, love and wonderful memories to you Laurie and your family.
My friend, my “framily” brother. I will so miss our fun times and adventures together with all of our friends. I struggle everyday trying to find the words to express just how profoundly my heart aches that you’re not here. You are so loved and so missed. Rest In Peace Kevin Kyle. I love you.
Wow! He loved Life according to all his interest. And he especially loved the Ones that Loved him. My Condolences to his Family . He lived a great life making memories. Memories that will carry on. Love Melody
Kevin Kyle Morgan
Kevin Kyle Morgan, 56, of Fernandina Beach, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, April 10, 2022.
Memorial services will be held at 2:00 PM on Sunday, April 24th at the First Baptist Church of Fernandina Beach.
Kevin was born in Gainesville, Florida to the late William C. Morgan and the late Lola Sue Smith. Growing up, Kevin attended school in Crystal River, Florida. On October 8, 1989, Kevin met the love of his life, Laurie Lovequist-Morgan of Fernandina Beach. Kevin and Laurie were happily married on November 24, 1996. Together they raised their daughter, Lindsay, and made their life as a family in Ocala. The family developed life-long friendships full of fun, laughter, and adventure during this time. When their nest was empty, and career opportunities arose at Florida Restoration Company, Kevin and Laurie together moved their lives back to Fernandina Beach.
Kevin was a man of many skills, which he absolutely enjoyed sharing with all of common interest. He was an absolute craftsman of all things wood from executing the elements of design to building and finishing. His work was exquisite! Many in Kevin’s life are lucky to have a gorgeous piece of furniture, art, décor, and even whole kitchens to remember him by. He happily shared his knowledge and skills to help others with their own projects. Kevin loved a good adventure and shared his adventures with any family and friends who were up for fun! His keen interest in local history drove his passion for metal detecting – exploring beaches, forts, civil war sites and more. He had lots of opportunities to metal detect with the Mid-Florida Metal Detecting club – even serving as a board member. Throughout his life some of his happiest times were spent on the water! This love of all things water began in childhood, fishing and swimming in Central Florida. Kevin’s adventures were full of mischief and fun and made for great memories with his cousins. As an adult, swimming led to owning a boat for wakeboarding and tubing on Lake Weir in Marion County. But there is more water and shoreline places to explore in Florida and this appealed to Kevin. His boating and adventuring world extended to SCUBA diving and then to buying a bigger boat, cruising and adventuring all over Florida and as far away as the Exuma’s and then diving trips in the Caribbean. Once back in Fernandina Beach, he enjoyed all the sea has to offer by fishing (and catching!) in his kayak and using his superhuman skill for “eagle eyeing” to find sharks teeth on the beach. Quiet time at home was filled with classic car modeling and actively participating with the Luka Cee’s Model Car Hobby Headquarters. Kevin literally mastered any skill he put his mind to!
Kevin’s sense of humor was absolutely hilarious! He teased and played like a big brother. No one was exempt! He laughed easily, loved to chat, share an opinion (and let you know yours is wrong!), and had a heart for helping anyone in need. All children loved Kevin’s heart for play and is endeared to them all. He never turned down a child wanting to play and made sure he taught them all to say, “Roll Tide”!
Kevin is survived by his wife, Laurie A. Lovequist-Morgan; his daughter, Lindsay Lovequist Waguespack (Perri); his sister, Sheila Harris of Ocala; and nieces Amanda Griffin and family, Kristan Harris and family and Morgan Baker and family, stepbrothers and stepsisters and many, many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
