Dennis (joe) Morton
10 May 1929 – 26 September 2006
Joe, as he was known to most of us, was born at Tower Hill and at the age of 3 moved to Scatterdells Lane where he lived all his life. He went to Miss Jordan’s school in Alexandra Road until he joined his Dad in the building trade. After some family illness, he went to work at Hadlands where he made lots of friends.
Following his retirement, Joe spent most of his time in his garden growing a variety of vegetables. He was a well-known figure in the village, riding his bicycle to the shop to buy his groceries and flowers to take to his parents’ grave in the churchyard.
Joe was cremated on 6 October and his ashes interred with his parents, Amy and Jim Morton, on 9 October. He will be sadly missed, particularly by his brother Bob and his wife Barbara and his cousins, June and Dave.
