Al graduated from Trinity Prep in Sioux City where he participated in track and boxing and enlisted in the Navy at age 17. After his service, he attended De Paul University and graduated from the University of Iowa College of Law in 1956. During law school, Al married Beverly Huth, also of Sioux City, and their first child, Barbara, was born in Iowa City. After graduation, Al and Beverly settled in Sioux City where AL began his law practice. Four more children, Max, Mark, Nancy, and Jane were born there. In 1968, the Morgan family relocated to Scottsdale, Arizona. Al began working as an attorney for the Maricopa County Attorney's Office in 1969 and moved to the Attorney General's Office in 1970.

Al is survived by his wife, Beverly Morgan, four of his children, Barbara Rees (Brian), Mark Morgan (Allegra), Nancy Bollinger (Steve), and Jane Badger (Jim), his brothers, Ray and Sam Morgan, and his sister, Barbara Frances Meier. He was preceded in death by his son, Max Morgan, his parents, his sisters, Ruth Melentovich and Adeline Uhl, and his brother, Jim Morgan.
