  1. CandleImageDear Morton Family,

    Sending you love and hugs during this sad time. I was so happy to spend some time with Kayoko recently and she showed me photos and videos of Dr Morton. I especially liked the way he kept saying to Kayoko “I love you this much!!” Keep him in your heart and hold tight to all of your fond memories of him. xx

  2. Dr. Morton was a model citizen, physician, husband and father to his beautiful family. I will always remember his tremendous support to his 4 beautiful daughters and to music education.

    My thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones at thsi time.

  6. I think about Dr. Morton often. He was a gentle and kind man who seemed to always have a smile. I have know him since 1985, the same year I met my wife Dolores. He will always be remembered as a great doctor, husband and father, and not adverse to cracking a joke now and then. Rest in peace Dr. David. God Bless and watch over you loved ones forever.

  7. CandleImageDr. Morton was one of the first doctors that helped form my nursing career when I graduated and went to St. MCH. He was a great teacher, compassionate doctor and a family doctor. I have fond memories of my medical days with him.
    Later he became a friend of my husband, Ray and I through swim team at the Pueblo Country Club. We had fun times at swim meets with our children.
    He will be missed, but his legacy lives on through times.
    Our condolences to his family.

  8. Dear Morton Family,
    I was very sorry to read of the passing of Dr. Morton. He was a great doctor and person. I know he was a great father because of the wonderful way his daughters grew up to be. May God comfort you in this sorrowful time.
    In Sympathy,
    David Montera
