William Travis Morton

Bill-MortonWilliam Travis Morton, 67, of Norwood, passed away Saturday, August 29th, 2015 at Trinity Place, Albemarle, NC.  His funeral service will be 10 AM Tuesday, September 1, 2015 in the Stanly Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. Julie Hill officiating.  Burial will be in Norview Gardens.  The family will receive friends at Stanly Funeral Home on Monday evening from 6 until 8 PM.

Mr. Morton was born on September 22, 1947 in Stanly County to the late Walter Travis Morton and Bernice Smith Bowers.  In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by grandparents, 2 sisters and numerous aunts and uncles.  He is survived by his aunt and life-long caregiver Lillie F. Morton of Trinity Place, sisters Shelby Jean Rouse of Asheboro, Linda Blake of Norwood, Pat Kearns of Seagrove, half-brother Brent Bowers of South Carolina, nieces, nephews and extended cousins who were very special to him.

Bill was a very special individual who loved meeting and helping people.  He never met a stranger.  He especially enjoyed his time with his second family at Trinity Place where he met many new friends.

The family would like to thank Trinity Place for the special care Bill received over the past three years and especially during his recent illness.  Memorials may be made to Hospice of Stanly County and the Uwharries or Norwood First Presbyterian Church or Trinity Place.

Stanly overwhelmingly met or exceeded our family’s expectations. Family and friends both expressed how thoughtful, caring and professional they were. We’re glad you’re in Locust!


We never felt hurried or rushed in any way even though they had other funerals that day.  Everyone at Stanly Funeral Home made us feel like we were family and did everything they could for us in this most trying time in our lives.


Everyone went out of their way to make sure that every detail was good with me.  Their kindness, patience and love they show is superior.  Stephen Aldridge and his ENTIRE staff are the best.


The whole staff was wonderful but Stephen Aldridge was excellent, even sending us a note one month later.
