Obituary

After a long and courageous battle with PSP (Progressive Supranuclear Palsy) Wayne Morrell passed away at The Meadows LTC in Ancaster on Friday, November 15th at the age of 82. True to form, Wayne never complained and “motored on” through all the difficulties that his disease caused him. Predeceased by his wife, Dianne in 2015. Born in Harriston, Ontario, Wayne was the cherished only child of Tom and Mabel Morrell. He really was their pride and joy. Loving father of Gordon Morrell (Maartje), Julie Otto (Tom), Holly Morrell-Lesperance (Larry), and step-father to Alicia Keller, and Stephen Teachout. Proud and loving Papa/Grampa of, Rachel (Lance), Abbey (Andrew), Morgan, Breanna, Cole (Alana), Carson, Seth, Bella, Helena and Joseph. Great-grandfather of Juliette, Noelle & Ellie. Also survived by mother-in-law Florence Rutten and brother-in-law Paul Rutten (Donna). Wayne was a successful residential real estate broker who enjoyed helping families find the perfect home in the Elmira area. He also went on to work in commercial real estate. Wayne excelled in mathematics and was a wonderful tutor to many. He and Dianne travelled/lived in Hawaii & also in the US for some time. Wayne was a busy guy. He always had a project on the go with his woodworking, electrical, and technical skills. There was never a project too big. Wayne loved a game of pool and until recently was still giving us a run for our money keeping us on our toes. He was always a challenging opponent. Wayne’s passion in life was to help others. He frequently traveled to areas in need, building schools and housing, running breakfast programs for children, working at soup kitchens, helping out with his church projects, and he had a special interest with Operation Christmas Child. We were lucky to have such a dear father, and we will always remember him as “Humble and Kind”, as the song goes. A special thanks to the staff at The Meadows LTC for their compassionate care. In lieu of flowers, Dad’s wishes were for donations to Samaritan’s Purse (Operation Christmas Child). Please join us for a memorial service on Wednesday, November 20th at 2 p.m. at Winona Gospel Church, 218 Glover Road, Stoney Creek, Ontario.
