The Thomas Francis Cozy Morley Statue in North Wildwood

Thomas Francis Cozy Morley Statue in North Wildwood, New Jersey
Thomas Francis "Cozy" Morley was an American club owner, comedian, and singer. He was born in Philadelphia in 1926 and passed away in 2013 in Camden, New Jersey. The entertainer was most noted for his version of the song "On the way to Cape May". He was popular with south Jersey residents and tourists.

While on a trip to Wildwood we stumbled upon the Cozy Morley statue sitting in front of a local bar and restaurant in North Wildwood. It's along the oceanfront and not far from the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse. To be honest with you, we had no idea who he was until we got home and looked up information on the internet. 

You can learn more about him by checking out Wikipedia. the obituary in the Atlantic City Weekly,  and the obituary in the Philadelphia National Inquirer
