CORNISH — Donald W. Morton, 80, of Cornish, died on Sunday, July 27, 2014, at the Maine Medical Center in Portland after complications from surgery.

He was born in Gorham on March 5, 1934, the son of Frank and Aurilla (Saunders) Morton. He attended local schools and was a graduate of Gorham High School. He proudly served in the U.S. Air Force for over 20 years and because of that, his family lived in several locations all over the United States.

Following Donald’s Air Force career, he moved back to Maine and worked for several years in the electronics industry. Most recently, he owned and operated two businesses in Cornish from his home, Morton Tax Service and Cornish Small Engine Repair.

He enjoyed fishing as a younger man, but his passion was for golf. If he wasn’t playing, he was watching golf on television. He also was an avid fan of the local Sand Drags. His family is very involved with NEORVCA which is based right here at the Ossipee Valley Fairgrounds. Above all, he loved spending time with his loving family and will be sadly missed by all who cherished him.

Besides his parents, he was predeceased by three sisters, Angie Spring, Winnie Robichaud and Marie Taylor.

Surviving are his daughter, Jenifer Lloyd of Portland; his son, Randy Morton of Cornish; his daughter-in-law, Elissia Morton of Sebago; his brother, Keith Morton of Raymond; two sisters, Ethel Quattrucci of South Portland and Betty Dusty of Connecticut; five grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, as well as many nieces and nephews.

Visiting hours were held on Thursday, July 31, at the Watson, Neal & York Funeral Home, 71 Maple Street, Cornish. A memorial graveside service with military honors was held on Saturday, Aug. 2, at Hillside Cemetery on the Huston Road in Gorham. Online condolences may be expressed at
