ARGYLE, Texas - A beloved football coach and teacher who died from COVID-19 complications was remembered during a funeral Thursday.
The service for Jeremy Morgan was held at Waxahachie Bible Church.
Morgan was the offensive coordinator and taught psychology at Forney High School.
The 44-year-old developed pneumonia after being infected with COVID-19.
He died in the hospital last weekend.
Mourners say Morgan’s death shows that COVID-19 does not discriminate.
“It not only brings it home to our town here, but I think it brings it home to everybody who thought, that’s something happening out there, no it's happening here,” Morgan’s friend, Mike Fay, said. “It's sad and painful, but I think we're all so much better to have known him."
Morgan leaves behind a wife and three children.
