Daniel “Dan” William Morton, 57, of Cleveland, passed away on Sunday, Sept. 8, 2019.
He was born on March 21, 1962, to the late James William “Bill” Morton and Harriet Morton.
He has been a resident of Cleveland for the past 23 years. He was a member of Clingan Ridge Baptist Church, and was a strong man of God who loved to share about his faith with others.
He was a veteran of the United States Air Force, where he served as a tactical aircraft maintenance specialist. This training allowed him to move his work into the private sector, ultimately owning his own company, M&M Aviation Solutions. He enjoyed hunting and fishing as well as many other hobbies, and he always seemed to have a “new project.”
Above all things, he loved his family and was a tremendous husband and father. He will be dearly loved and greatly missed by all who knew him.
He was preceded in death by his father, James William “Bill” Morton; and his father- and mother-in-law, John and Dot Runyan.
He leaves behind to cherish his memory his loving wife of 30 years, Kristy Morton; children: Kelsey Morton and Colton Morton; mother, Harriet Morton; siblings: Denise Pierce (Michael) and Darris Morton (Kim Weldon); and numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family members and friends.
The family will receive friends from 4 until 7 p.m. Thursday at Clingan Ridge Baptist Church, located on Georgetown Road.
A Celebration of Life service will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 12, 2019, at the church with the Rev. Collin Cooke officiating.
A graveside service, with full military honors, will take place at 1:30 p.m. on Friday.
You are invited to share a personal memory of Dan, or your condolences with his family, at his online memorial located at www.companionfunerals.com.
