Obituary for Morton Gillis Gann

Morton Gillis Gann was born on June 25, 1940 to William Lawrence and Thelma Ethel (Morton) Gann in Salina, Oklahoma. He departed this life on November 18, 2018 surrounded by his loving family in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Morton was a lifetime resident of Salina. He graduated from Salina High School in 1959. On October 14, 1960 he married the love of his life, Opal Pierce, and from their union came four children. Morton worked for WilGro Corporation and later Mustang Construction until retirement. He was also on the Salina School Board for 19 years, as well as a city councilman.
Morton enjoyed gardening and cooking outdoors on his wood stove. More than anything he loved his kids and grandkids; he attended all of their events and even coached them in baseball when he was younger. He was so proud of all of them graduating from Salina High School and had the privilege of handing his own children their diplomas. Morton was a wonderful father, grandfather and great grandfather and he will be deeply missed by all who loved him.
He is survived by two daughters, Tina Cox and husband Randy and Debbie Morgan and husband Mike all of Salina; two sons, Clifford Gann and wife Johna and John Gann and wife Jenny all of Salina; eight grandchildren, Kaleb Cox and wife Jordan of Claremore, Rami Sipes and husband Cody of Salina, Kayla Morgan of Salina, Shaylee Morgan of Salina, Whitley Gann of Salina, Megan Gann of Salina, Ashton Gann and wife Megan of Pryor and Gracie Gann of Salina; three great grandchildren, Kennedy Cox of Claremore, Blake Sipes and Sophie Sipes both of Salina and one sister Virginia Nichols of Salina.
He is preceded in death by his parents; his wife Opal; and several brothers and sisters.
