It is with great sadness the family of Michael Morlock announces his passing away peacefully with his family by his side at Grand River Hospital after a lengthy illness.
He was the beloved husband of Elena (Scudiero) of 50 years, a loving father of Barbara (Perry) and Christopher (Helen) and a cherished Papa (pops) of Caitlyn, Nathan and Clayton. He was a dear brother of James (Lorraine) and Peter.
A dedicated teacher who retired in 1995, he shared his knowledge and love of teaching with all of his students. With his family, he’d go on long country drives and nature walks and share his passion for science and nature. He so enjoyed being involved with the Preston Scout House Band and his love of travel took him and his wife on many cruises. His stained glass pieces brought enjoyment to many. He loved playing cards (and winning!) with his family and friends. An avid reader of Western fiction, he was a great fan of John Wayne and didn't mind watching his movies over and over.
A special thank you to all the caregivers especially those at Grand River Hospital during his last weeks. And a very special thank you to Dr. Vitou, who made him and his family feel important and heard in their time of need.
Cremation has taken place as per his request. A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, Sept. 7, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Cambridge Centre of Arts - Toyota Auditorium (Durward Centre, 62 Dickson St.).
In lieu of flowers the family is requesting donations to either Lisaard House, Innisfree House or Hospice Wellington. Messages and condolences may be left at tricitycremations.com or by calling 519-267-7199.
