Chris Morgan also very well known as Mysti Dawn was known for his big heart, his sarcastic comebacks, and not afraid to “open the library and read a …..” Sadly he passed away on January 22 at the much too young age of 36, in his home, in Evansville.
Chris was the one with the grammar. (Even though you may have received a message or 2 or 100 from him that looked a little something like this “Iznt DIz sOoOo CutezZ, Aiden wud luvs it” followed by five or more emojis). So, for us not being able to go to him and ask for his help makes this especially hard for us to write.
Anyone who knew Chris knew that he was a very giving person who would go out of his way for anyone. He was very supportive of the LGBTQ community. He was inspired to help many aspiring performers in many different roles such as a mother a sister and even a father as onyx. Even if there was no “Dawn” in their name it didn’t mean he was not “mama” to them. He was someone who was so looked upon in the community, he inspired to ensure everyone exceeded to their potential if they were willing to listen.
He was always involved in community functions, as much as his health would allow him to be. He held 2013/2014 Miss Gay Evansville and in 2014 he became the forever reigning title holder for Miss Don’t Hate Zodiac Diva. He led the Evansville AIDS walk along with other reigning title holders, he was always involved in the Angel Tree Benefit held at Brick House; it was important to him to try and help other families as much as possible.
He was survived by his loving husband, Chuckie, his sister in-law, whom he could never hear, Misty, his brother in-law who he welcomed with open arms; Ryan, and then there’s Aiden his nephew whom he loved more than anything in the world, Aiden was his life! Everywhere he went he was always thinking about him. Besides all his loving family, we can’t forget the countless number of loving friends!
Chris is preceded in death by his mother-in-law, who eventually just became his mother, Wilma, no in-law needed! She was his Mom and when she passed he always said she is in a better place now and that she would always be with us. As will he!
Chris Morgan / Mysti Dawn was the true meaning of family, friend, and queen! “That’s what life is all about.” “Loving and supporting one another!”
