Morgan John Kuhl, a devoted husband, loving brother, and proud uncle died peacefully at his home in Brewster, NY on May 1st, 2024. Morgan was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) in August of 2023. He was 57 years young.

Morgan is survived by his loving husband Joe and his siblings Martin and his wife Jean; Michael and his wife Kathleen; Maryanne and her husband Gerald. Morgan’s brother Matthew and sister-in-law Ellen preceded him in death.

He was employed as a deputy chief with The City of New York Department of Sanitation. He was less than two years from retirement at the time of his passing and was looking forward to the many adventures that lay ahead for him and his husband Joe. Morgan loved sailing, RVing, Broadway musicals, and his dog Bailey. Morgan held a bachelor’s degree in philosophy, a master’s degree in divinity and a master’s degree in psychology.

One of five children, Morgan was born on November 21st, 1966, in The Bronx, New York, to Martin and Margaret (nee McCarron) Kuhl. Morgan’s father Martin passed away just two weeks before Morgan’s birth.

Morgan was a beloved uncle to eight nieces and nephews: Jena, Martin Jr., and wife Anna, Jake, Michael Jr., Matthew and wife Genesis, Justin and wife Ashley, Dylan and wife Kerri, and nephew Aidan. Morgan took great joy in the love they shared and was proud to see his family grow to include ten great nieces and nephews, Lilliana, Aliyah, Martin, William, Brian, Daniella, Gia, Vincent, Dylan Jr., Megan, Damien and Bruce.

Morgan was humble, kind, loving and compassionate. His wit, wisdom, interest, and etiquette were an example for us all, and his Irish gift of gab was legendary. He was an old soul in a new world; at home in any setting, and he always knew the right word and the right gesture to instill ease and confidence in a soul. His calm, resourceful nature made him the friend you wanted to have most when your life got tough.

Morgan was an avid cook and foodie. He frequently hosted dinner parties for friends and family, and he proudly served up tasty food and delicious anecdotes, sprinkled liberally with songs and (corny) jokes. Joe was his dutiful sous chef and dining with him was always an event. He turned out pasta, pork chops, potatoes, and a flourless chocolate torte that ensured his nieces and nephews returned to visit him.

He handled his burdens with dignity and grace, as he faced all of his life’s challenges. His illness was shorter than what most with this disease must endure. Still, his deep faith, the love of friends and family, and his dear Joe sustained him.

May Morgan’s spirit continue to inspire us, and may his memory be a blessing to all who knew him. He will be forever in our minds and in our hearts and may he rest in eternal peace.
