Donald Elco Morton, 67 years young, made his eternal trip to be with the Lord on April 25, 2020. A memorial service will be announced at a later time.
Donnie was born March 14, 1953 in Greensboro, N.C. to Dewey Elco and Dorothy Pauline Morton. He grew up in the Glenwood community and attended Ben L. Smith High School. His friends fondly remember going to school in his 57 Ford station wagon they called "The War Wagon". Each week they pitched in $1.00 for gas. After graduation, Donnie attended The University of N.C. at Chapel Hill and The University of N.C. at Greensboro earning a BA degree in Psychology and Sociology.
After school, the most important person in Donnie's life was his dad. They hung out in the "garage" with friends who remembered them as "two peas in a pod". Their most memorable times were at Oceana Marina in Carolina Beach on dad's 36 foot Island Trader sailboat....a way of life they both cherished and enjoyed.
Donnie has been described by his closest friends as one who "loved life," his friends, his music and of course the beach! He will be remembered by his sister as my "little brother."
Donnie is preceded in death by his mother and father. He is survived by his sister, Bobbie Morton.
