For decades, loyal patrons enjoyed Morg's friendly conversations and his amazing breakfasts and lunches, especially his unbeatable hash brown potatoes. Morg was a friend to all and treated everyone with respect.

A U.S. Army veteran, Ken served in the Korean War from 1951 until 1953. He married Carolyn Buhr in Tripoli in 1956. They were married 40 years. Carolyn preceded Morg in death in 1996. He is survived by his daughter, Julie Barnes of Prescott, Arizona, his son, Scott, of Cedar Falls, and six grandchildren.
