Alfred Gregg Morse, 94, died peacefully at home on Monday, April 23, 2018, surrounded by his family.
Raised in Easton, MA, he graduated from Oliver Ames High School in 1941, was a Sgt. in the US Army during World War II, then returned to Easton where he married Rosemary J. Bradford, raised 5 children and became president of the Crofoot Gear Corp.
He was a member of the Board of Trustees for the North Easton Savings Bank for most of his adult life. He also served as President of the Unity Church in North Easton, Treasurer of the Inc. Proprietors of Nonquitt and was a longtime member of the New Bedford Yacht Club.
A devoted husband, father and employer, he took great pride in the care he bestowed upon his family, his employees and his home.
He loved being outdoors. Raking in the fall, skating, skiing, iceboating in winter, canoeing, tending the yard and gardening in the spring, but sailing was his lifelong passion. He and his wife moved to South Dartmouth in 1982.
Alfred is survived by his five children, Ann Morse, Beth Hikade and her husband, John, Peggy Morse, Sarah Morse and Tad Morse and his wife, Mary Beth. Along with 9 grandchildren and 4 greatgrandchildren.
