David MORRISON

MORRISON David. Jan. 20, 1944 – March 24, 2013. After a long hard battle with cancer, David passed away on March 24, 2013. He was predeceased by his parents Hetty and Ralph Morrison and his first wife Gerry of Abbotsford, BC. David is survived by two sons: Colin (Simi) of the Yukon, Chris (Amy) of Charlotte, North Carolina; devoted fiancée Sandra Bedford of Kelowna and his many friends in the Lower Mainland. He served as Charter President (1985) and was a life member of the Optimist Club of Abbotsford and was also the District Governor of the Pacific Northwest District for Optimist International (1997 – 1998). He continued his love for dancing with his many new friends in Kelowna. David’s passion was photography, which he shared with his caring friend Larry Meade who has been a constant support during his difficult journey. He was looking forward to more camping and fishing in the Okanagan. David will be remembered for his smile, wit and gentle nature. He was always there to lend a hand. We wish to thank all the staff at Hospice House for their devotion and caring ways shown to David, his family and friends, making his passing more peaceful. There will be a celebration of David’s life on Thursday, April 11 at 1:00 pm at the Club House at the Bristol Gardens, 1965 Durnin Road, Kelowna, BC. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Central Okanagan Hospice House, 2035 Ethel Street Kelowna, BC, V1Y 2Z6 or Optimist International Canada, 5205, boul.
