|Dr. Milton Theodore (Ted) Morter, Jr
May 5, 1935 - May 23, 2013
A bell tolls today for the passing of Dr. Milton Theodore (Ted)
Morter, Jr., on Thursday, May 23, 2013. Dr. Morter was born on
May 5, 1935 in Akron, Ohio to Milton Theodore Morter and Grace
Evelyn Morter, and what an amazing 78 years he has had! From
being raised on a small family farm in Ohio, Dr. Morter went on to
graduate with his Bachelors of Science from Kent State University,
his Masters of Science Education from Ohio State University, and
his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Logan College of
Chiropractic. He later served as president of that same college, as
well as that of Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas. He
dedicated his whole life to helping people gain and maintain health,
spending the better part of 5 decades searching for scientific and
philosophical truths of health and life. His patients, family,
colleagues and world leaders such as King Hussein of Jordan and the
royal family of Saudi Arabia have all been a part of his lifelong
Dr. Morter married his childhood sweetheart, Marjorie Ruth Kibler
in 1954. Together they started what would turn out to be one of the
most revolutionary healing systems in natural medicine today. His
patented technique, the Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique (B.
E.S.T.) is now used by tens of thousands of health practitioners
worldwide. Together, they also started a family - Dr. Ted Morter,
III, Dr. Tom Morter, and Dr. Sue Morter - who all, along with three
of his grandchildren, continue his work.
The author of eleven books and countless audio/video collections on
healthy living, Dr. Morter leaves us with a wealth of information he
felt was divinely inspired. He credited his own success as a doctor to
his “best friend,” the subconscious, intuitive voice, which guided him
throughout his adult life.
Dr. Morter was obsessed with knowing the cause of disease, and he
thought about it even while he was doing the other things he loved.
He loved his garden. It was there, he said, that he was in
communion with his father in heaven and with Mother Earth. And,
he loved to fish. Whether it was with his boys in Canada or right
near his home on Beaver Lake, he looked forward to every trip,
buying the latest gizmos and gadgets to compete for the biggest and
He was preceded in death by his parents, a sister, and his loving wife
and partner of 50 years, Marjorie Morter. But, his memory lives on
in those he has left behind in this world - his wife Barbara Jean
Morter and her children, Colette Sookma, Ky Crump, Penny Smith,
and Patrick Smith; and her four grandchildren; his brothers, Dr. Bill
Morter of Lebanon, Missouri, Chuck Morter of Canada, Dr. Dan
Morter of St. Louis, Missouri, and his sister Marlene Greenslade of
Canada; his children, Dr. Ted Morter, III and his wife Janna of
Rogers, Dr. Tom Morter and his wife Anna of Rogers, and Dr. Sue
Morter and her partner Elisa Zinberg of Indianapolis, Indiana; his
grandchildren, Dr. Ted Morter, IV and his wife Dr. Katy Morter of
Bentonville, Dr. Sarah Morter Rowden and her husband Dr. Josh
Rowden of Rogers, Dr. Russell Morter of Rogers, Chuck Morter of
Fayetteville, and Phillip Morter of Fayetteville; and his great-
grandchildren Maxwell Morter and Evelyn Grace Rowden.
A visitation will be held at Stockdale Funeral Home in Rogers,
Arkansas on Saturday, May 25th from 5-7 pm. A graveside service
will be held on Sunday, May 26th at the Rogers Cemetery in Rogers,
Arkansas at 2:00 pm. A “Celebration of Life” service will be held on
Friday, September 13th Dallas, Texas. In lieu of flowers, Dr. Morter
would want you to support B.E.S.T. Research International, 215 W.
Poplar, Rogers, Arkansas 72756, in its ongoing efforts to share B.E.S.
T. with the world.
Dr. Morter’s mission in life was to improve the health of mankind,
worldwide. Certainly he has succeeded in that mission. His children
and grandchildren will continue that work, for there is more to do.
He was a great man who deeply loved his family and his extended
Morter HealthSystem family who followed his work. If you knew
him, in honor of him, please tell your favorite story about Dr.
Morter to someone the day you read this. He has now found truth,
and all is well.
You are in my thoughts, he was the greatest man I ever knew, He will
be missed greatly. Love ya all, Stacie
My condolences to the Morter Family. May light perpetual shine on
Dr. Michael Courtney
I was so sorry to hear about Dr. Morter’s passing. I really admired,
respected and loved Dr. Morter and Marjorie. Thinking of all of you.
It is with a heavy heart that I send this message as my number one
“living mentor” has stepped to the other side and left this physical
plane. The amount of truths that he led me to realize and understand
cannot be brought to words, Let alone the impact that those truths
have had on thousands and thousands of other people that I’ve
shared these truths with!!! MT was another great spirit whose ideas
were well ahead of his time but because he had the boldness to step
out and share them so openly the consciousness of mankind has
been elevated and because of that this world will never be the same.
May we all be so bold as to continue to search for the truth and
share it with others to fulfill our purpose in this physical plane; that
being to evolve our spirit to a higher vibrational frequency due to
the experiences we attract while in this physical form!
Thanks “MT” for all you did and continue to do, but most of all
Thanks for being you!!!!
Your student of Truth, Kreg D Huffer DC LCP
As a chiropractor, one of the best approach that I learned was what
Dr Morter taught us. I still use it regularly and I will always
remember his dedication toward humanity. As one of Jéhovah’s
Witness, it is my personal hope to see him in the new order Under J.
C. ruler ship, were humans will start living the life intended by our
Creator Jéhovah. John 5: 28, 29
Loving thoughts to you all. Dr. Morter was a visionary pioneer who
dared to think and reason and attempt to change the status quo. The
world is a better place because of his effort and his amazing brain.
Love and Light to you all. David Demperio DC
Dr. M. T. Morter, Jr.

It was a very special moment when we had the opportunity to learn
of Dr. Ted while on an amazing cruise several yrs ago. It was even
more beautiFULL to see the many people who were experiencing the
gifts of his mission. We don’t always know why we meet those who
we do in life, however, I do know that each & every soul is a link in
the chain. We are honored that we have had the opportunity during
that cruise to again learn of another soul living their purpose...YES*
Blessings to all of you...& Dr. Morter Jr. we know you go On & On
& On : * with love.
