He continued his education at Eastern Kentucky University to complete his coursework and get a Bachelor of Science in Business after leaving Leslie County High School. He spent a total of six years in the US Navy.
During his time as the Weapons Support Equipment Leading Petty Officer on board the USS Constellation (CV 64) from December 1988 to June 1989, while it was stationed in both the Western Pacific and the Indian Oceans, Ted earned the Navy Achievement Medal in recognition of his outstanding career accomplishments. With his exceptional technical expertise and teaching skills, he made a substantial contribution to the accomplishment of the mission that Constellation was tasked with carrying out. As of May 29, 1993, Ted and Patricia Morgan, also known as a Napier, had been wed for 28 years. While serving as a sales representative for Ameriplan Insurance Company, he achieved great success. Ted was an active supporter of his children’s athletic endeavors and donated his coaching services for each activity in which they participated. He frequently went “walking” and liked watching sports on television.
Ted experienced a sense of pride after learning that he had been included in the Union Raider Hall of Fame, a group that he had assisted in founding. Since his kids played and coached football there, as well as his daughter playing softball, he loved going to Ryle High School. In the Ryle and Union communities where he resided, he was well-liked. Ted was a committed follower of the Victory Assembly of God in Hazard, Kentucky. He prioritized Bible studies in his life and was eager to spread the idea that everyone is beloved by God. He loved it when his kids did well in their endeavors, and he never missed an opportunity to cheer them on. His second son made the choice to enrol at the University of Minnesota in 2017 and to maintain his position as the team’s starting quarterback. Since then, he has been a loyal follower of the Golden Gophers.
The surviving members of Ted’s family are his mother Margaret Bowling (Avawam, Kentucky), brother Tim Koogler (Hyden), niece Kassidy Rose Koogler (Hyden), nephews Connor and Colby Napier (Hazard, Kentucky), brother-in-law Dwayne Napier (Hindman, Kentucky), and sister-in-law Selena Napier (Hindman, Kentucky) (Hazard, KY). Additionally, he leaves behind a sizable number of lovely friends as well as a large number of devoted aunts, uncles, unique cousins, and other relatives. Both of his maternal grandparents, Ted and Samantha (née Huff) Wooton, and his paternal grandparents, Roscoe and Opal Morgan, passed away before he was born. The first relative to pass away was Ted’s father, Gerald F. Morgan (of Hyden, KY). In memory of a loved one, you can donate to the Glioblastoma Foundation or any other Center for Brain Research.
