George "Shadow" Morton

I met george when I was 13, he was 15. George was hanging out the basement window with Artie and Marty and I walked by. He called me over and that is how we met.


I was crazy over him; he was my best friend and boyfriend over the next four years and he took me to my prom. We lived 3 blocks from each other but went to different schools.

I have so many memories of hanging around Marty's house with George, Artie, Sal, Tony and Marty's brother Joe. George asked me to marry him when I turned 17. I will never forget that night because I turned him down. I was to young but deep in my heart, to this day, I am sorry I turned him down as he was my best friend.

Your father

Thank you, Keli, for sharing with us a bit more about your father. I wish I would have had the chance to meet him as his talent was nothing short of amazing. Do you have any photos and/or stories you could share with us?

Best,

It makes me very happy that you have such fond memories of my Dad. Yes he was special. It's not surprising he'd leave such a lovely mark. However, Very few people really knew my Dad, hence the nickname Shadow. I along w/my sisters & our Mother were blessed to share this life.
