Armond Morales Passes Away

Armond Morales, founding member and original bass vocalist for The Imperials, has passed away.

Armond’s son Jason Morales posted on his Instagram page:

Yesterday was a day I will never forget. I had the honor of spending my fathers last moments on earth with him. He was a man of quiet strength and deep love. He was a singer with a Christian group called the Imperials. He sang backup for Elvis and changed the face of Christian music. I will miss him deeply but I know he is in heaven singing his heart out and rejoicing. I will see you again dad I love you.

Today we mourn the loss of our beloved Armond Morales
“He was born on a Thursday, February 25th, 1932 and is walking on the streets of gold into the arms of Jesus on Monday, December 5th, 2022. He gets to hear the words, well done a good and faithful servant!” Says Bonnie, Armond’s wife of 52 years.
Armond owned and managed the Imperials through every transition, from the very beginning. It was only 5 years ago, that Armond retired from management and the road. Even though Armond was no longer part of the public team, he was always available with his wonderful advice and encouragement.
We all knew Armond’s countless accolades but the accolade he was most committed to was his family. Bonnie and Jason, We are here for you. We are loving you and praying for you.
To our dear Armond… Life is such a short -dash- . Today you are standing in the Presence of The King. We will miss you until we join you once again for a great reunion.
The Imperials,
Paul Smith, Rick Evans, Ron Hemby
