John Morris



It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of John Morris on December 8, 2013 at the age of 89.

He will be dearly missed by Doris, his best friend and wife of 67 years; children, Fern ďSandiĒ (Ken) Cunningham and Jack (Kathy); grandchildren, Kelly and John (Terri Whitehead) Russell, Layne (Vicki) Cunningham and Jenna and Lindsay Morris.

John was predeceased by his parents, John and Helena Morris and sister, Vaughn Myrvold.

Johnís first priority was always to his family. John and Doris worked extremely hard to provide opportunities for the next generation. He was a proud father and grandfather who was always available to assist, provide guidance and direction.

John had a full and interesting life. He was a Lieutenant Commander in the Royal Canadian Navy in World War II. He moved to Edmonton in 1953 to be in the car business with Healy Motors. He contributed to the community through his association with St. Lukeís Anglican Church, the Edmonton Downtown Development Board and the Edmonton Auto Dealerís Association. When he retired in 1984, he and Doris spent their winters in Palm Desert and summers in Edmonton. John loved hiking in the desert mountains, driving convertibles with the top down, doing projects at his Half Moon Lake cottage, and presiding over Sunday family dinners. He enjoyed an active, independent life style until 2011 when he moved to the Devonshire Extended Care Center. The family will be eternally grateful for the care and dignity he received there.

John was a devoted spouse, loving father, loyal friend and a person of integrity. God Bless.

A private Memorial Service will be held on Tuesday, December 17, 2013.

Donations in Johnís memory may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Alberta, 10531 Kingsway Avenue, Edmonton, AB, T5H 4K1.

In Loving Memory of
John Morris
