Dear SCRCC Friends. It is with great sadness that I inform you that Senator Bob Morton passed away Thursday.
Senator Morton served the citizens of the 7th Legislative District for 22 years.
He retired on January 1, 2013 after serving from 1991 through 1994 in the House and from 1995 to 2013 In the Senate.
Senator Morton was known as a strong advocate for conservative values of the 7th legislative District. He was a mentor to other legislators, including Cathy McMorris Rodgers,
A pilot, a logger, husband and father and Minister.
Senator Morton was a true leader who served with honor and was respected buy all.
My memories of Senator Morton are steeped in his faithfulness in serving his constituents and kindness shown to all that he encountered.
He consistently wanted not only the best for his District and the country but for each individual that he encountered.
I was especially struck by the team of Bob and Linda Morton who always supported one another and everyone that they came into contact with.
Most important it was so rewarding and reassuring to know that Bob Morton was a Christian who loved the Lord and whose moral compass was guided by and firmly pointed to the wisdom found in God’s word.
Such blessed assurance for him and his family and such a blessing for all of us who associated with Bob and Linda and benefited from their dedication and wisdom.
God promises that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord and I am confident there is much rejoicing in heaven this day.
