Longtime economic development leader and Bayfield Town Board member Ed Morlan died Tuesday in Durango.
Morlan, 66, was having eye surgery on Oct. 31 when he may have suffered a pulmonary embolism, a blood clot in his lungs, while he was under anesthesia, his daughter Kinsee Morlan said. He was transferred to Mercy Regional Medical Center, where was in intensive care and later died.
He will be remembered for his sense of humor, community commitment and as a model father and loving husband, Kinsee Morlan said. He also is survived by his wife, Jackie, and daughter Amber.
