BURNHAM, John Morley - Peacefully in his 90th year on August 9, 2017 with his daughter by his side at Michael Garron Hospital.
Morley is to be credited with his remarkable fortitude during the 11 years following his stroke. We're relieved that he is now free from his suffering. Morley truly loved his family, always asking about them and enjoying their company until the end.
He will be remembered for his loyalty, generosity and his genuine interest in those around him. He was the hard working owner/operator of Burnham Haulage at Limestone Quarries where he met many of his loyal, lifelong friends, and could always be found working on his vehicles or helping others.
He always enjoyed time spent with his good friend, Arnold. Morley enjoyed cottage country, pleasure drives, good food and togetherness. Loved dearly by devoted daughter, Christine Greenland (John) and step-grandson, Mark.
Friends until the end with former wife, Shirley Morden, the love of his life, originally meeting as children swimming at the pond in Uxbridge. Loving brother to his nine siblings. He had a particularly strong bond and respect for his brother, Stan and (late) sister, Bernice.
Our gratitude goes to caregiver extraordinaire, Judy, and to the nursing staff, doctor and friends at Chester Village, his home and family destination for the past 10 years.
Private Cremation to take place. Family and friends will be invited to gather at a later date. Interment at the Uxbridge Cemetery.
Memorial Donations in his name would gratefully be received by the Broadview Foundation (Chester Village).
