July 13, 1946 – April 1, 2023
With many broken hearts, we announce the passing of Christopher “Chris” Morgan at LHSC – Victoria Hospital, London, surrounded by his family, on Saturday, April 1, 2023. Survived by his loving wife, best friend and soul mate Eva, (her children Sara and Dante) his children Sally (Neil), Jake (Mercedes), sister Susan Hess, brother Charlie Morgan (Cathy), grandchildren Evangeline, Jack, Miles, Alexandra, brother-in-law Scott Dolan (Darlene), sister-in-law Helemarie Deen (Tony), Debbie Krobisch (Tom). Fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his parents George and Mary (Miller) Morgan and his brother-in-law Gerry Hess.
Chris had a passion for sailing. He cherished his memories as he participated in re-enacting on the Sails. He looked so charming in his uniform. He was also a lover of many sports.
After retiring as a teacher, Chris continued with another passion of his; woodworking. He had many skills and made several things including furniture. He was always so proud of his work and could not wait to show off his masterpieces. He was a perfectionist with much talent, and he loved sharing, always with pride on his face.
He will be dearly missed by his family and his many, many friends. There are no words to describe the emptiness he leaves behind.
Thank you to the many people for taking such good care of Chris during his final days.
Christopher’s wish was to be cremated and arrangements have been entrusted to Cremation & Celebration, Arva (519-963-4003). A celebration of his wonderful life will take place at a later date.
It was his wish to honour him through donations in his memory to the following organizations. Arthritis Research Canada, Canadian
Lung Association, Canadian Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation, or a charity of your choice.
Henry Meredith says
Chris Morgan and I met several years ago at a Scotch whisky tasting event put on by the Waltzing Weasel pub, and also at several subsequent tasting sessions there. A mutual friend and single malt aficionado was fellow Welshman Richard Lewis. Chris and I bonded almost immediately over serendipitous coincidences — He and I were both born in 1946, we both liked to have fun and to express our mutual senses of humour, and we both exhibited artistic interests (mine mostly through music, and Chris’s through amazing carpentry) and a love of teaching and the outdoors. But the real clincher was when I found out that my first two names, “Henry Morgan,” were the same as Chris’s last two names. I’m not sure if Chris can trace his ancestry back to Henry Morgan the pirate, as I can, but we both share a fondness for Captain Morgan rum! I was so sorry to learn of Chris’s recent departure from this world, and extend my condolences to his family and all who knew him. I will miss his constant beaming smile and cheerful attitude. I’m sure he connects to April 1st in more ways than we imagine, and the light-hardheartedness of that day will ingrain his memory joyfully in our lives, as we continue to celebrate all that he offered to everyone he met.
