Susan Morgan, Co-Owner of Morgan Sound, Passes Away

Morgan co-founded WA-based A/V integration company.

Lynnwood, WA (August 1, 2018)—Susan Morgan, co-owner of A/V integrator Morgan Sound, Inc. (Lynnwood, WA) died on July 25, 2018, following a four-year battle with Ovarian Cancer.

“It was a duty that she, my wife Jody Adams, and I never set aside,” states Charlie Morgan, president of Morgan Sound and business partner of Susan. “I take comfort in knowing that we cared for her and stayed in her presence to the very end.”

Morgan Sound, in business for nearly 40 years, was managed by Susan in its early years of the company, as she looked after 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 Charlie stopped touring, organizing and purchasing new inventory for both retail and live sound operations.

Managing her own client list, of which there were many, her early adoption of digital consoles positioned the company to be ready for her church and sound clients when they began to switch over from analog equipment. In more recent times, Morgan Sound has expanded beyond audio, and for the last 20 years, has also designed and installed video presentation systems for use in a variety of markets.

Plans are being prepared to carry on Susan Morgan’s legacy of championing young women and men who wish to enter the professional A/V industry by creating the Susan Morgan Scholarship Fund. Susan was always willing to give a young person a chance to experience the backstage aspect of the industry, and the company plans to honor that.

Charlie Morgan adds that the company will continue to operate as it moves 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.”
