It is with great sadness that the family of John Sherran Morrison announces his sudden passing on January 15th 2016.
John spent every day of his life on a quest. He thrived on new experiences whether he found them in a recipe, book, or fishing boat. John was a collector, but it was not unusual for him to give something away to someone it meant more to. In the past two years John enjoyed being a grandfather,
trail running, and growing cherry tomatoes in the greenhouse he built.
John grew up in Port Alice, B.C. His father worked in a mill and his mother was a school teacher. He earned a BSc in Marine Biology from the University of British Columbia. He worked at Cariboo Pulp & Paper Mill in Quesnel, B.C and as an Environmental Protection Officer for the Government of Nunavut.
John leaves behind his wife Jan, mother Nina, siblings Ian (Sherrie), Marlys (Steve), Wendy (David), Gregory, his daughter Megan (Kyle) and his grandson Lachlan.
Waiting for him in heaven are his father Jack, his brother Charles, his daughter Jamie, and several loyal canines.
Friends and family will be remembering John at a private memorial.
Few hearts like his, with virtue warm’d,
Few heads with knowledge so inform’d;
If there’s another world, he lives in bliss;
If there is none, he made the best of this
