David Morton Obituary

David K Morton

July 21, 1957 - November 17, 2023

A beloved friend, community member, and fierce lover of animals was released into God’s mighty keeping November 17, 2023. David Keith Morton was born to Blanche Williamson Morton and Edgar Heilman Morton in Flemington, New Jersey on July 21, 1957.

David is survived by his best friend and partner, Danny (Sheridan Cody Beauman), a number of dear friends, brother Alan Morton and sister Kathy Yarbrough, and his cherished community at Columbia City Church of Hope. Preceding him in death are two feline companions, Paulo and Seymour, both of whom he loved immensely. 

The arts and cooking were David’s other loves. An opera airing on Classical King FM was the usual soundtrack to his meticulous meal preparation. Scrupulous with his knife work and balanced with his seasoning, David carved out the time necessary to create his favorite comfort foods which included lemon chicken, spaghetti, and jalapeño cornbread. 

David led a life of compassion and gave generously to causes that support children, animals, and the environment. Buoyed by his faith and love for God, he worked to make space in the church for others who are lesbian, bi, gay, transgender, nonbinary, and questioning. He reflected the radical love and kindness of Jesus with his warm smile, infectious laugh, and whole heart. David’s gentle spirit remains with those who knew him. May we reflect that kind of love to the rest of the world.

A memorial service will be held in the community room at Kin On Healthcare Center on Sunday, December 3, 2023 at 1:00 pm. (4416 S. Brandon Street) 

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
