Obituary for CHARLES NELSON MORTON

Charles Nelson Morton was born on December 16, 1940 in Washington, D.C. to the late Roberta Commodore. Shortly after his birth, Charles moved to Calvert County, MD, where the late Winsco and Vertie Wallace lovingly raised him.

Educated in the Calvert County Public School System, Charles graduated in 1959 from W.S. Brooks High School. In 1961,he enlisted in the United States Army where he served in the Vietnam War and obtained the ranking of Staff Sergeant. Upon completion of his service, Charles worked for various companies including Reagan National Airport, Calvert Cliffs Power Plant, and the Washington Metro Transit Authority. A self-taught welder, Charles also contributed to the assembly of multiple buildings throughout the DC metro area, including the original Washington Convention Center.

The Morton Family Tree began in 1963, when Charles married the love of his life, Margaret Gantt, of Prince Frederick, MD. From this union, he was blessed with five children: Craig, Angela, Kimberly, Demetria, and Keith. From that branch, the tree blossomed, extending the family with nine grandchildren: LaToya, LaKeya, Kimberly, Terrell, Sherryll, Craig, Jr., Terence, Sierra, and Ahmelah. Still growing, his legacy continues through four great-grandchildren: KeMonte', Kenneth, Trinity, and Sebastian.

Charles was a God-fearing man and gave his life to Christ at a young age. He was a devoted member of the Greater Bible Way Church, in Prince Frederick, MD, a church he was proud to have helped build. At Greater Bible Way, Charles continued to grow in his walk with The Lord, serving in various ministries and was appointed to Deacon under the leadership of the late Bishop Joseph N. Brown.

Charles was a family man and enjoyed spending time with his children and grandchildren, who were the joys of his life. He loved horses, racecars and automobiles, bowling, baseball, singing, and playing chess. Charles was also known to be a sharp dresser and loved good-smelling cologne. A devoted fan of the Washington Redskins and The Williams Brothers gospel group, Charles was a loyal and helpful man, teaching craftsman skills to family and friends and had a strong love and compassion for people.

In addition to his legacy, Charles leaves to cherish his memory six siblings: Roland (Cheryl), Larry (Phyllis), Nathaniel (Peggy), Wendy, William (Rosemarie), and Dwight; two special brothers Thomas (Sheila) and William (Sarah); two aunts whom he loved dearly: Rosemary Johnson and Maggie Rice; along with many other family members and friends.
