Seth Morton

July 7, 1980 ~ October 3, 2019 (age 39)

On October 3, 2019 early in the morning an Angel came and took Seth on his final journey.  Seth Morton was born on July 7, 1980 in Baltimore Maryland to Sheila P. Morton and Cecil Morton who he fondly referred to as Chrissy and Mutt.

Seth was a member of St. Phillips Lutheran Church and was baptized at an early age. 

Seth was raised in Baltimore City and attended Baltimore City Schools. In 1997, he began working for Downtown Locker Room and remained a dedicated employee for eighteen years.  As he rose through the ranks he had an opportunity to work at various locations, using his expanded knowledge in sportswear and good customer service. He ended his tenure as Manager of the Pennsylvania Avenue store.  Through his journey many loyal customers and co- workers became lifelong friends.

Mr. Hospitality is what Seth could be called. He loved entertaining. He often had cookouts and lively gatherings at his home for family and friends.  His love for cooking was not unnoticed. He loved seafood with crab and shrimp being his favorite. 

When it came to travel, Seth was always ready to go.  He loved Florida, but traveled as far west as California while hitting places in between and beyond.

Seth had a quick wit.  As an avid storyteller, he could keep you laughing and informed at the same time.  He had an extensive knowledge of history, pop culture, movies and music. His keen memory and attention to detail would make you want to say hmm, I did not know that. 

His family and friends were the center of his life and the love he had for is son could not be measured.

Those left to cherish his short, but memorable life are: his father, Cecil Morton, brother, Cecil Morton, son, Seth Morton, Jr., fiancée, Tia Branch, step daughters, Kayla Brown and Jordan Thomas, sister- in-law, Tanya Morton, nephew Cruze Morton, aunts, Diana Sims, Denise Brown, Stacey Brown (Godmother), Felina Riley, Deborah Richmond, Doris Williams,  Elaine Fowlkes, Vera Gray, Deborah Adams and Gina Hale; great aunt, Carolyn Harp, godmother, Wendy Harp; uncles, Donnell Hale, Matthew Williams, Ernest Riley and Edgar Richmond.  Close friends, Chinky, Kip, Hollywood, C’More, Ike, Red Dog, Uncle Nod, Kevin and Ms. Lettie, and a host of cousins and friends.  If anyone was omitted, please charge it to our minds and not our hearts.
