Robert Wayne Morris
Wayne Morris, born April 5, 1943 in Vernon Jubilee Hospital, British Columbia, died July 26, 2012 at Carpenter Hospice in Burlington, Ontario. He died surrounded by the love of his family, daughter, Amy, son, Alex, and the mother of his children, Sharon.
Wayne is also survived by his sister, Wendy (Ken) Nickel, sister-in-law, Marie Morris, nieces, Tamara Merriman, Susan Morris, and Brenda Morris and nephews, Rob Morris and Gus Morris. All of Vernon.
Wayne was predeceased by his parents, Bob and Puff Morris, and his brother Gary Morris.
The family would like to recognize the caring friendship of Yosh Sakakibara, David McMurtry and Paul Montidor who were constantly in touch with Wayne in his final journey.
The family would also like to recognized Carpenter Hospice staff and volunteers for the amazing care. Thank you for helping to make Wayne’s last weeks as comfortable and pleasant as possible; a good memory for all of us to share.
Wayne attended all his school years in Vernon, graduating from Grade XII with the Class of 1961. As a young adult he moved to the Toronto area. Wayne’s wish is that there be no service but that his ashes be brought to Vernon by his family.
