    Mickey Morlan, 74, of Orange County, California passed away unexpectedly on February 6, 2022 at his home.   Whether you knew him as husband, dad, papa, grandpa, Mickey, or Mick, the common dominator was the same: you loved him, and he loved you. And everyone has a story they could tell about him, but this is his…. Born in Feb of 1947 to Everett and Martha Lee Morlan. Mickey grew up in Long Beach, CA attending Jordan High School. Upon graduation, he was drafted to serve our country in the Vietnam War. After his service, he began his 30 year career as a meat cutter for Vons and ended his career with Lucky Supermarket. Soon after, he met and married the love of his life, Linda Mau, on March 29, 1969. This year would have marked their 53rd wedding anniversary. Together, they had 3 children: Tim, Ron Morlan, and Kelly Crumley, and only as Mickey would do, took on the fatherly roll to his nephew, Ryan Morlan. I’m sure we would all agree he felt his family was his biggest accomplishment – yes even more than the 40lb. pound Yellow Fin Tuna he once caught. Aside from being survived by his loving wife and children, Mickey is survived by his grandchildren, known as his heart and joy Nina Morlan, Paige, Jaden and Jaxson Crumley, his sister Connie Tennant , his nephew John Blas and niece Eddie Ellen as well as many other family members.   Mick was known for his love of fishing, his laughter made possible by the endless jokes only he could tell, his love of cooking and showing people how absurd life was at times. As evidence to that, hours were spent with friends that became family at what was known as “The Roundtable, Mick’s Table, and The Lord’s Table” giving life advice, sharing stories, laughing and crying, Mickey being a mentor to all he invited to sit beside him. We lost a special one with Mick, he saw love and laughter in all things. His dedication to his people was infectious and his laugh, a much needed reset to your soul for all to listened.
