NEW LONDON - Steven Hjalmar Morland Jr., 70, of Wilder Lane, died Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2012, at New London Hospital following a long and courageous battle with cancer.

He was born in Newark, N.J., on Sept. 9, 1941, the son of Steven Hjalmar and Justine Grace (Walsh) Morland.

Steve spent his early years in West Orange, N.J., graduating from Franklin & Marshall and Fordham Law School in 1966 with a juris doctor in law.

He served in the U.S. Air Force Reserve during the Vietnam War. In 1967, Steve established his law firm, Steven H. Morland, Attorney at Law, in Lambertville, N.J., where he practiced for 41 years until his retirement in 2008. He enjoyed being a small-town attorney and was always willing to offer his legal expertise to civic organizations and people in need.

Steve was past president of the Lambertville Kiwanis Club, past president and founding member of the Lambertville Area Chamber of Commerce, past master of Orpheus Lodge, AF & AM of Stockton, N.J., and a member of King Solomon's Lodge No. 14, F & AM of Elkins.

To enjoy his retirement, he moved to New London to pursue his love of the outdoors. During the summer months, he could be found on area golf courses, and during the winter he spent many days on the ski slopes with his wife. He loved being an ambassador at Mount Sunapee Ski Area and a golf ranger at the Country Club of New Hampshire, his idea of perfect retirement jobs.

A real "people person," Steve injected his infectious personality into these jobs. He had the rare ability to get along with everybody and was loved by all who knew him. He was also the first to hit the dance floor and loved a good party. He enjoyed singing and was proud to be a member of the choir at St. Andrew Episcopal Church in New London.

Steve's favorite way to spend an evening was a family dinner, sharing good food and drink with his wife, children and grandchildren with whom he shared a very close and wonderful relationship. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

Members of his surviving family include his wife of 40 years, Pam (Matous) Morland of New London; a son, Erik and wife Aimee Morland of Rowley, Mass.; a daughter, Emily and husband Bradley Curtis of Edwards, Colo.; two grandchildren, Emma Rose Morland and Haley Grace Morland; a sister, Louise DeBlois and her husband, Paul, of Simpsonville, Ky.; and numerous cousins; and his favorite granddog, Schaffer..

SERVICES: A memorial service will be held on Saturday, March 3, 2012, at 10:30 a.m. at St. Andrew Episcopal Church, Gould Road, New London, with the Rev. Celeste Hemingson, officiating.

Memorial contributions may be made to St. Andrew Episcopal Church, P.O. Box 294, New London 03257. To sign an online guestbook please visit www.chadwickfuneralservice.com.
