Garey Morgan Obituary

Garey Morgan, 77, of Cambridge, passed away Sunday (October 1, 2023) at his home surrounded by his family.

Garey attended Byesville High School and was the owner & operator of B&B Body Shop and Towing since 1978.  He was a member of TRAO (The Towing and Recovery Association of Ohio).  Garey always said that after family, the business comes first.  He and Connie, along with their children, became valued members of the business community serving Guernsey County and the surrounding area for over 45 years.  He was certain that the traditions that he established will be carried on by his family for years to come.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by an infant daughter, Tina Morgan; his brother-in-law, Ron Paden; and three sisters-in-law, Kathy Booth, Diane Paden, and Sharon Walker.
