Resided in: Newark, California

Morgan Stuart Fay passed away peacefully, with family at his side, on January 21, 2022 at his home in Newark, CA. He lost his valiant battle to the rare blood disorder, Amyloidosis. Born to Robert and Ann Fay on August 24,1954 in Kansas City, Missouri, Morgan spent his childhood in Minnesota, moving to CA his Senior year of high school.

In 1974, he met the love of his life, Jean Rose Boyer, and four years later, they were married at St Theresa’s Catholic Church in South

Lake Tahoe. Morgan and Jean remained married for 43 years and raised three beautiful children in the East Bay.

Morgan began his passion for law enforcement at the age of 18, becoming a cadet at the Brisbane Police Department. After receiving his Basic Police Recruit Academy Certificate from the College of San Mateo in 1975, he continued his career as a full-time Police Officer at the Brisbane PD. He had a special way with the community he served, befriending many community members over the decades.

With a career spanning more than twenty years, Morgan proudly served as a police officer for both the Pacifica and San Jose Police Departments. During that time, he truly dedicated his life in service of others. Subsequent to working in law enforcement, he worked for a number of companies in their security departments, most notably Oracle, which brought him to numerous countries including Asia, Europe and Africa. He loved the traveling, especially getting to know the people in the foreign countries, and he talked fondly of those experiences.

Morgan was known for his sharp wit, love of fishing and camping and offering a helping hand when needed. He had a protective nature of his family, loving them deeply.  He enjoyed riding his motorcycles, (much to Jean’s chagrin) and loved classic cars, owning a blue Oldsmobile 442 and a 1979 Corvette.

Morgan had a special circle of friends with whom he spent his most recent years, shooting the breeze, playing cards, and enjoying each other’s company, They held a special place in his heart and he looked forward to meeting up with them often.

Morgan was the beloved father of Jennifer(Jun), Morgan, Jr. (Liisa), and Christopher(Teresa). Proud grandfather of Oliva Cajal. He is survived by his mother Ann Fay, sister Becky Karp (Larry) niece, Stephanie(Steve)and was preceded in death by his father, Robert Fay and brother, George Fay.

Family and friends are invited to attend a Celebration of Life  at 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, February 16, 2022 at Central Park, Lake Elizabeth, AREA C, 40000 Paseo Padre Parkway, Fremont.

  1. CandleMorgan was my brother-in-law for 44 years. He definitely was a character. Outspoken but yet humble at the same time. I will miss his wit. As the obit says, he truly was very protective of his family and I was lucky to have benefited from that. Sometimes I think he saved me from what would of been a terrible situation.
    My heart is broken, and I will miss him terribly. May God always, protect his soul, He is at peace, and pain free.
    Morgan……Fly with the Angels. We love you Morgan!

    I’M FREE

    Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free
    I’m following the path God has chosen for me.
    I took His hand when I heard him call;
    I turned my back and left it all.

    I could not stay another day,
    To laugh, to love, to work or play.
    Tasks left undone must stay that way;
    I’ve now found peace at the end of day.

    If my parting has left a void,
    Then fill it with remembered joys.
    A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss;
    Oh yes, these things, I too will miss.
    Be not burdened with times of sorrow
    Look for the sunshine of tomorrow.

    My life’s been full, I savored much;
    Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.
    Perhaps my time seems all to brief;
    Don’t lengthen your pain with undue grief.
    Lift up your heart and peace to thee,
    God wanted me now-He set me free

  2. CandleFor my dear friend Jean and kids. My heart hurts for you all. I am so sorry for your loss. You will be in my prayers always! May God bless you and the family❤️

  3. CandleRIP Morgan my Law Enforcement Brother. You inspired me to be a police officer. I went on a ride along with you in San Jose in 1989 and I was hooked. I served 24 years in Marin and it was in part because of you. God Speed.

  4. CandleI’m a little late with this but I worked with Morgan at Pacifica P.D for several years before I moved to private security. Yes, Morgan was one of a kind but a good man with a great heart. He was always good for a story or a laugh. He was a good cop. He worked with and for several of my friends in the business world but we never ran into each other which was unfortunate. Our best to the family. He will be missed!

  5. Like former Pacifica Police Sgt, Bill Whiprecht, another guy I thought the world of, I’m
    a bit late in my comments. I just learned of Morgan’s passing. I was a Police Explorer at the Pacifica Police Dept. when I was 16 years old. Morgan was a guy I looked up to and still do. He took me on Ride Alongs, etc.In large part due to him I became a cop and retired as an Lt in a metropolitan area. Thanks Morgan. The love, admiration and respect I have for you is second to none.

  6. CandleI’m really late but just found out. I worked with Morgan at Oracle in Redwood Shores from 1996 to 2007. We had a lot of laughs together and for giggles, I called him uncle Morgie! He was a good man and will be truly missed! My deepest condolences to the Fay family❤️

  7. I too am late learning of Morgan’s passing. I worked with him as a police officer at Pacifica PD and have nothing but fond memories of those times. He had a wicked sense of humor and we enjoyed many beers and laughs together. He was all cop and had incredible investigative instincts. After he joined San Jose P.D., we unfortunately fell out of touch.
    I’m saddened that we never got to say goodbye. RIP brother…you were a good guy and I’ll keep you in my prayers.
