Morris Alton Kemp entered eternal life on July 14th, 2020. His spirit is carried on by his daughters Denise Kemp, D’Ann Tisdale, and Cynthia Hill; grandsons, Dustin Tisdale and wife Cymber and Derick Tisdale and his partner Sarah Wesely; great-grandchildren Hollis and Blaiz Tisdale. We were blessed to learn many valuable lessons from Daddy/GranPa during his 96 years, among them: how to tie a hook to a fishing line, learn to drive anything with wheels, and have a strong work ethic. Alton is reunited with his wife of 62 years, Iona Whittington Kemp, and is predeceased by three siblings. Military burial with Taps played by family friend, Supply Corps Officer of the U.S. Navy LCDR Teresa Rolfe-Cantu was celebrated at Rest Lawn Memorial Park in Hereford on Friday, July 17th, at 10 A.M. Alton was a Corporal in the U.S. Army serving in World War II as a member of the Mountain Artillery in the Mars Task Force- China, Burma, and India Theater.
