Clayton Daniel Morey

Born at home in Mitchell County to Thomas N. Morey and Ruby Mae Smith, Dan spent most of his life in the fields and woods of the area. He served in the U.S. Army, Airborne Division. An electrician by trade, he worked all over the United States. In addition, he was also a local farmer. He served as a Master Mason for over fifty years. Dan had strong ties to his community and was known by many as a person to call when help was needed but also a friendly face for a cup of coffee and conversation at the corner store. Always one to enjoy a good joke or prank, he caringly picked on those he loved. He had a soft spot for children and animals his whole life.

He met and married the love of his life Barbara “Bobbie” Shankles in March of 1955. They had two children, Thomas Kevin and Dana Kay.

His parents, along with his siblings- Eunice M. Bowles, Juanita “Pete” K. Hall, W. Herbert Morey, and Phoebe A. Brown, predecease him.

Dan is survived by countless loving friends and family including but not limited to: his wife of 65 yrs., Bobbie Morey; son, T. Kevin Morey (Terri); daughter, Dana K. Holder (Todd); as well as his grandchildren, Clayton N. Morey, Jennifer N. Boggs, Clifford D. Morey (Kelli), Kenna D. Holder, Anna L. Holder; great grandchildren, Kevin R. Morey, Emmalee A. Boggs, and Ellisyn A. Boggs.
