Obituary

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. Dedicated grandfather to Nicole Seguin-Morris, AnaΓ―s Douvisi-Morris, Lauric Douvisi-Morris, Kassandra Morris-Sliekers, Stephanie Morris- Sliekers, Yvonne Morris- Sliekers, Justin Clohecy, Elizabeth Clohecy, Bridgitte Clohecy, Madlen Lang, and Kyler Lang. 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.

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

When I think about Grandad, I remember how passionate he was about ecology and the environment. Our political debates were always exciting and interesting. To me Grandad embodied Canadian culture and behaviour. I have very fun memories of grandad especially when I went to visit during summertime. He also taught me as a kid to stay calm and to trust myself when I couldn't touch the bottom of the swimming pool. Grandad will always be in my heart. Lauric Douvisi-Morris.

Love and hugs to my uncle - utmost admiration for a life so well lived!
I am a niece who has such AMAZING memories of times spent with my incredible Aunt Lois and Uncle
Cecil. They were ahead of their time
- recycling, organic gardening, nature!!! Saving the planet!!! I am so proud of being related to forerunners of environmental responsibility. Unlike so many others, Kale was a word familiar to me (no exaggeration) 50 years ago. So proud to call you my Uncle. And to your amazing side-kick and partner in crime, my amazing Aunt Lois - love always. Sandra and Gary πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

Sonja and I met Cecil when we played Badminton at what was then Fairview School. It evolved into a long lasting friendship where we had many parties and activities with Cecil and Lois.
Cecil and I had a lot of common interests. We both had a deep interest in native plants and we both restored parts of our properties with native plants, which are still thriving.
We were both involved in organic gardening and were active members of Canadian Organic Growers.
Sonja and I have known Cecil and Lois for over 40 years and we will miss him.
