Stan MORGOTCH

Morgotch, Stan

August 25, 1922 – March 31, 2014

Stan Morgotch passed away peacefully on March 31, 2014 at the age of 91. He is survived by his daughter Deborah (Michael), grandchildren Tessa and Stefan, and many devoted nieces and nephews. Stanley was predeceased by his brothers William and Peter, and his wife Violet in 2011.

Stan was born in Hyas, Saskatchewan on August 25, 1922. He grew up on a farm the youngest of three brothers, and married Violet Holm on October 27, 1945. They moved to Campbell River in 1955 where Stan first worked on the construction of Ladore Dam, and the blasting of Ripple Rock. He then worked at the Crown Zellerbach Mill from 1956 to 1987. Stanley and Violet were happily married for 67 years.

Many thanks to the staff and volunteers at New Horizons, (notable mention to York the Dog) who all made Stan’s last years a period of growth rather than decline. Special thanks to Dr. Jon Walker who gave him exceptional care for many years.

Stan will be dearly missed by all, but we know that he is happy to be with Violet once again.

At the family’s request, there will be no public service and flowers are gratefully declined.
