Morton Rosser Baldwin joined his beloved wife Mavis T. Baldwin in heaven on November 18, 2019 at the age of 92. In addition to being a devoted husband and father, Morton was a proud veteran of the U.S. Army who served on the front lines during the Korean War. Upon his discharge, he built a successful career spanning more than 40 years with Norfolk Southern Railways. Throughout his life, Morton held an unwavering faith in God and so, in the spirit of John 3:16, we celebrate his life in this world and his life everlasting with his Lord. He is survived by his loving daughter Robin A. Baldwin, sisters Marie Baldwin Hodges and Rachel Baldwin Clarke (Robert), and numerous nephews and nieces. Morton’s extended family also includes a team of highly skilled and compassionate caregivers who sustained him during his final years. His family is forever grateful for their care and support.
