Morgan Drew LaChapelle passed away peacefully in his sleep at the young age of 29 on Saturday, October 14th, 2023. He was born on May 2nd, 1994, in York, Maine and resided in Ogunquit, Maine.

Morgan is described as an extremely genuine, caring, and accepting person with an infectious laugh and a great sense of humor by those that know him. He absolutely loved life and had the BIGGEST smile when talking with you, making everyone feel so special. He worked at Unum and Liberty Mutual for a number of years and filled his time reading, learning new things, online investing, even gardening and was always decorating or making something.

He had such a unique way about him and a flare for style all his own and loved the reactions he elicited. He was so generous in nature, loved helping others, and always looked to make people and things better. He had a GREAT passion for all animals, especially reptiles and pugs and felt at home being outdoors especially at Ogunquit Beach where he grew up.

Morgan is survived by his father Henry and stepmother Martha LaChapelle of Wells, his mother Michelle LaChapelle and stepfather Leo Higgins of Ogunquit, his sister Sydney LaChapelle who he loved very much, Shannon Higgins, and stepbrothers Patrick Tarmey of Florida Keys, Andrew & his wife Maria Staples of Kennebunk, Scott Staples and Alex Staples of Wells, a beloved grandmother Carol LaChapelle of Lady Lake, FL as well as several aunts, uncles, cousins, and so many friends he considered his family.

A funeral mass will be held on Saturday, 10/28 at 10am at Saint Mary’s Church in Wells, Maine followed by a celebration of life from 11:00-2:00 at Clay Hill Farm Restaurant in Cape Neddick. There will also be a 6pm Vigil at the main beach in Ogunquit followed by gatherings at Leavitt Theatre and Main Street in Ogunquit to reminisce.

In lieu of flowers, we know Morgan would be extremely honored to have donations made in his name to either Project Sleep for Narcolepsy Advocacy or Sweetser in support of Maine Mental Health Care two causes near and dear to Morgan.
