Theodore Feild Morton III


Theodore Morton (Teddy) passed away peacefully in the comforting presence of family on Saturday, September 9, 2017 in Alto, NM. He was born November 11, 1958 in Fort Worth, Texas and was a descendent of several pioneer families.

Teddy was a "jack-of-all-trades". He was interesting, entertaining, had a wonderful sense of humor, loved his many friends and "spun great tales"!
