The Morgan community mourns the loss this week of a great leader, service man and friend.  Don Mathews passed away in the early hours on Friday, Nov. 23, of heart failure. Don was born in Cedar City on Nov. 8, 1953, to George Clark and Marcelene Mathews.  Later his family moved to Orem, where he attended school and graduated from Orem High. An active child, Don especially enjoyed playing soccer and was able to be the team’s goalie. He loved to snow ski in the winter and would often catch the bus to Sundance to enjoy a day out on the slopes. Don especially enjoyed listening to radio broadcaster Paul Harvey and as a child he would run home from school to hear Paul quip his famous tag line “now the rest of the story.” He was well liked as a child and quite the character. He would often be found hanging out with his brother Jeff. He loved to make his family laugh and in turn, they found enjoyment in making Don laugh so hard soda would come out of his nose.
