AV integrator Morgan Sound, Inc., of Lynnwood WA, has announced the death of Co-Owner Susan Morgan on July 25. She battled ovarian cancer for four years.
In the early years of the company, Morgan managed virtually all aspects of the day-to-day operations, while her partner and then-husband, Charlie Morgan, was touring with many national and international artists. She continued to do so even after Morgan stopped touring, organizing and purchasing new inventory for both retail and live-sound operations. She managed her own client list, and her early adoption of the coming age of digital consoles positioned the company to post gains when many of her church and sound clients began to switch over.
Plans are being prepared to carry on Susan Morgan’s legacy of championing young women and men who wish to enter the commercial AV industry by creating the Susan Morgan Scholarship Fund. She was always willing to give a young person a chance to experience the backstage aspect of the industry. With that in mind, the company asks that, in lieu of sending flowers, funds be used for the education of future students. More information regarding her funeral service and celebration of life will become available in the coming weeks.
Charlie Morgan noted that the company would continue to operate as it progresses through the required legal processes. “We have prepared for this and see no obstacles that could deter us from our commitment to our customers and manufacturers,” Morgan said. “Susan and I operated with a successful outcome in mind in every situation, and, while I will miss her counsel, I am confident her teachings will carry us through these difficult times.”
