Obituary for Morley Powell

Morley  Powell
Morley Mayhew Powell. 1930 - 2018
Shortly after a fun, happy interaction with some of his very caring caregivers at Sunset Manor, Morley’s wonderful journey of 88 years ended on July 21, 2018. Dearly loved, (often late) husband of Diane since 1959. Loving, very proud father to Bruce (Melanie Boyd-Brown) and Jodi (Kevin Clark) and much loved and loving “Gramps” to Hudson, Sawyer and Zuzu, Meghan, Jessica and Jeremy. Dear Uncle to Shelley Robson and brother-in-law to Robbie McKenzie of Vancouver.
Ottawa born, Queens Commerce 1952 and Western MBA 1954. Summers working at Jasper Park Lodge where he met many lifelong friends and the future love of his life Di from Vancouver.
His happy, very rewarding career in food and beverage industries had him travelling all of Canada, Europe, California and Australia. It also had his family living in Toronto, St John’s, Vancouver and Oakville before retiring to Collingwood in 1996. Mo had a cup half full attitude and a smile and warmth to light up a room. He loved big band music, cool jazz, sudoku, football, skiing, golf, a perfect martini and his many great friends. With world wide travel, canoes to paddle, boats to sail, golf and tennis balls to hit, cottages to enjoy, gondolas, chair lifts, tuktuks, rickshaws, horses, elephants and camels to ride plus a 652lb Blue Fin Tuna to catch in Nfld. – Life was Good!
Sadly missed, remembered and loved forever by all who knew him.
Celebration of a Life well lived will be held Friday, September 14 from 2 p.m. at Devils Glen CC, Simcoe County Rd 124, Glen Huron, ON.
Donations can be made to Parkinson Society Canada or Collingwood General and Marine Hospital.
