Never Dull in Payson
Mar 01, 2018 01:20PM
Beyond the excellent sharpening business, Kerry Morton is a wonderful and amazing person who will not retire. With a Masters Degree and at one time a nearly completed Ph.D. in psychology he worked for the Utah Department of Corrections at the State Prison for just short of 21 years. He then he worked as a bailiff in the Salt Lake County Court System for 12 years. With that work history behind him is still energetic and enthusiastic about working at the LDS Temple in Payson two days a week. One day he serves as an ordinance worker and the other day he works as an engineer maintaining the temple and he has the nickname of “squeak killer.” He also enjoys making knives as well as sharpening them. In his small, but very well organized, basement shop he also makes small wooden toys for the grandchildren. Kerry Morton at age 69 is not living a dull life and is a great role model for us all.
