George William Morris was born in 1935 in Verdun, Quebec and passed away in the presence of God, in the early hours of April 29, 2011 at Columbia House with family by his side. Dad was having a silent battle with cancer and fell ill suddenly.
George was a good friend to everyone he met and was always willing to give a hand to anyone. There were no strangers in his life, just folks he had not met yet. Dad spent most of his life plumbing, driving taxi in Montreal, and most recently, over 20 years at The Springs Golf Course in Radium. He had many interests and was known for growing a great garden, even if it was on the roof of a hotel. Life was not always easy for Dad but he never complained. He was a hard worker all of his life and had a terrific sense of humour. He leaves behind his wife Natalie and seven children: George, Arlene, Lesley, Jennifer, Anna, David and Ali as well their spouses, Gwen, Skip and Paul, his 14 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. He will be missed by his brothers Ken and Bob and sister Carol. A special thanks to the staff at Columbia House, Vivian, Heather, Suzanne, the activity gals, and many others that took such great care of our Dad for the past eight months and up to his last hours. Also thanks to David, the Anglican minister that rushed to Dad’s side. A thanks must go out to Charlie and Janey for the care and updates that you provided over the years on Dad’s condition.
A time to remember George will be held in Radium Hot Springs at the Horsethief Creek Pub for friends, family, and staff at Columbia House at a later date TBA.
