Walter Morton


Walter Morton, R.I.P.

Prayers of the congregation are asked for the repose of the soul of our brother in Christ, Walter Morton, who died early on Christmas Morning, December 25, 2014.

Prayers are also asked for his widow, Miyoko, who survives him.
Mr. Morton first came to St. Paul’s in 1949, and for more than a half-century served in numerous capacities including Vestryman, Clerk of Vestry, Sub-deacon, Lector, Acolyte Master, and Head of the Guild of All Souls.  Above all, he was faithful in mass attendance, in the recitation of the Prayer Book’s Daily Offices of Morning and Evening Prayer, and in disciplined daily intercession for the living and departed.  He remained active in a number of devotional societies including the Guild of All Souls, and was an Associate of the Order of St. Margaret.
Mr. Morton also served his country as a medic in the U.S. Army.  In World War II he was wounded in the invasions of Omaha and Normandy, for which he received The Purple Heart and The Bronze Star medals.  In 2010 he received from France its Legion of Honor medal.
His funeral will be held at St. Paul’s at 2:00 on Sunday afternoon, January 4, 2015.  Following the Mass of Resurrection his cremated remains will be placed in the parish columbarium. 
Rest eternal grant unto him, O Lord, and may light perpetual shine upon him.  May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, Rest in Peace.
