elevated w2y0X Obituary
elevated w2y0X Hugh Morrison Born Oct 9, 1933 passed away March 14, 2019 at 85 years old! As one of 6 children, he was an incredibly strong, independent dreamer. At the age of 19, came from Ireland to Canada and made it his proud home for the last 65 years! Hugh met his beautiful wife Frances, a gorgeous redhead! She was born a town away in Ireland but as luck would have it, they met for the first time in Toronto at a dance at St. Mary’s .Two dreamers had their Slice of Heaven in the city. They shared their love of dance and filled their house with love, laughter, and three beautiful children ( John, Desmond, and Ann). Many a great time was had by all who visited. Hugh and Frances were married for 50 years before Nana passed away but Papa always stayed true to her and the family they created. Twelve years after her passing he rejoins her to dance again. Hugh worked for Coca-Cola for over 38 years! He was a dedicated employee to a company that supported him and the family! They threw the best Christmas Parties ever! Hugh Morrison was a loving, giving, stubborn, and caring man. You never left his presence hungry for; a meal, a laugh, a coat, a chocolate bar, or a wee dram of good Irish whiskey. Papa was known for his cooking, his singing, his strength and his endless supply of jokes. His laughter filled any room he was in and it wasn’t long before he shared a story that brought smiles and warmth
