Brian MORLEY

MORLEY, Brian George John. Brian passed away peacefully on 25th September 2013 at the age of 88 years at the Glenwood Care Home in Agassiz, BC. He was a beloved father to Carole, husband to Irene, granddad to Steven, great granddad to Charlie and Brandon and great great granddad to Alfie. Brian was born on 25th April 1925 in Chatham, England to parents Edith and George, he was an only child. He joined the Royal Engineers at the tender age of 15 years during the 2nd World War and was based in Chatham, England. Brian immigrated to Canada in 1954 with his wife Irene and daughter Carole and was stationed at Cornwallis, Nova Scotia. In 1959 he joined the Royal Canadian Black Watch Military Band at Camp Gagetown, New Brunswick and in 1961 he moved with his family to Germany to be part of the NATO Peace keeping force for 2 years, returning to Camp Borden, Ontario where, after showing virtuoso talent paying the violin euphonium, he became a Bandmaster for the RCASC in 1965. On retiring from the Canadian army he returned to the UK to take up a position as a Prison Service officer prior to returning to his beloved Canada to join the Correctional Service in Matsqui, BC. Brian will be sadly missed by many people in the UK and Agassiz, BC. He was a member of the Floor Curling Team at Friendship House, Agassiz. His bright sense of humour stood out above his ailing health and he was able to keep his dignity and self-esteem in his final years. His beloved and devoted daughter Carole wishes to send her sincere and heart-felt thanks to the expert caring staff at The Logan Manor and the Glenwood Care Home where he enjoyed many happy hours in his twilight years. In his passing, he was expertly taken care of by Henderson’s Funeral Home in Chilliwack and will be taken back to his country of birth to be buried in Leeds, England with his dear wife Irene.

He will be sadly missed but never forgotten. We will remember him always and forever. Goodnight and God Bless.
