Bryan Lloyd Morton
On the farm that he loved, on April 29, 2021, Bryan Lloyd Morton, returned to the dust from whence he came and which he deeply loved.
The beloved husband of Floral “Cookie” for 19 years, Bryan is survived bys his children Ann (Darryl) Voskamp, John (Whitney) Morton, Molly (David) Morton-Sydorak and their mother Linda Morton. He shared his supportive nature with Cookie’s children Kevin (Amanda) Becker, Tracey (Michael) Hertel and Justyn Becker.
Bryan was the inspiring grandpa of Caleb, Joshua, Hope, Levi, Malakai, Shalom and Shiloh Voskamp, Stephen, Michael, Edlynne, Elsie and Peter Morton, Noa, Mya, Lia, Ana, Ema, and Eli Morton-Sydorak, Emily and Jared Hertel and Jackson and Arlo Becker.
He was the brother of Bonita (Derek) Jefferies, Paul (Carol) Morton, and Janice Morton and the brother-in-law of Elaine Winter, Eric (Kathie) Huber, Clarine (Paul) Schnurr, Delbert (Vicki) Huber, Wain (Julie) Huber and Chyrille (Paul) Lehman and Liz MacKeand.
Bryan was born on a farm outside of Baltimore, Ontario on March 6, 1949. He was predeceased by his parents Lloyd George Morton of Newcastle, Ontario and Barbara Ruth Ellen (Chambers) of Madoc, Ontario, in-laws William and Alberta Huber, daughter Aimee Ruth Ellen Morton, and brother-in-law Verdun Huber.
Bryan’s love of windmills symbolized his passion for the harnessing of earth and sky. He loved the working of the earth, the harvesting of its bounty, and believed farming was his art and poetry. He took his canvas to town and the Brussels Four Winds Barn became his magnum opus that he built with his own two hands.
A man of vision, a man of creativity, a man who was never at a loss for an unconventional idea, his unforgettable, worn hands were a testament to an incredible work ethic, a lifetime of ingenuity, and his deep, deep love and service for his family. He was dearly loved and will be dearly missed.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions cremation has taken place. A celebration of Bryan’s life will be planned at a later date.
In lieu of flowers and as expressions of sympathy, donations to Canadian Foodgrains Bank or the Brussels Lions Club would be appreciated.
Cards of sympathy and donations may be sent to Box 340, Brussels, N0G 1H0.
