Morris, Cecil MacIntosh

Passed away peacefully after a brief illness at Milton District Hospital, on January 15, 2020, at the age of 91. Beloved husband of Lois Aileen Morris (nee Strong) for 69 years. Loving father to Kimball Morris (Isabelle Douvisi) of Guerande, France; Anna Morris (the late John Sliekers) of Milton; Jane Clohecy (Brian) of Mississauga; and Lynn Morris- Lang (Don Lang) of Aurora.

Great grandfather of 6.

Cecil, a machinist by trade, was the proud owner and operator of CM Morris Design Ltd in Milton for 50 years. Cecil was an avid birder, a naturalist, a conservationist and organic gardener long before these pursuits became popular.

Art & Cecil were friends for over 60 years and enjoyed many canoe trips together. I got to know Cecil through Art, and Cecil was our Best Man at our wedding. Over the years, we had many enjoyable visits, with both Cecil & Lois, together. Had we been aware of Cecil's passing, we would have liked to attend the Memorial Gathering. Cecil was a great friend and we will cherish our friendship with him, over the many years we've known him.

I will truly miss my uncle Cecil, and I truly hope he knows how much he means to all of us, meant to me. I have many great memories of my uncle, most inspirational, he's that kind of person. I stayed with Aunt Lois and Unlace Cecil when I was eleven, bored I asked uncle Cecil if he had a suggestion and he handed me a book. I didn't read, never read, but at my uncle insistence I read 'Gray Seas Under' by Farley Mowat. I have been and avid reader ever since. Later at age twelve, I designed a gear box with multiple speeds for my dream "go-cart'. My father Tom Jackson drove me to Uncle Cecil's where he patiently explained where my design was flawed and suggested corrections. The patience he had with designs, drawn by a twelve year old boy, inspired my love of Engineering. What we do in life passes on and creates ripples we could never have seen, In those moments that we inspire others, we are immortal. A direct result of my uncle Cecil's patience and understanding is my becoming a teacher. I teach subjects for an automation degree in Engineering. I wonder how far my uncle Cecil's influence will travel. What other great good may come from encouraging a young boy to read a book. I love and miss you uncle Cecil and I'm more than sure we'll meet again.

Love Jaye

We met Cecil and Lois several years ago at the Canadian Club, and were so happy to get to know them better over the years, especially when Greg started working at CM Morris Design before Cecil retired. Such amazing people who were so generous and interested and interesting, I enjoyed our conversations so much. Our sympathies to Lois and Anna and all the family. We feel lucky to have known such a wonderful man. Greg Warchol and Valerie Potter
