Obituary

In memory of 

Michael Brian Morris

October 29, 1982 - December 8, 2021

With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Michael Brian Morris. Our beloved husband, father, son, brother, grandson, uncle, nephew, cousin, son-in-law and friend.

Sadly, we lost Mike to pancreatic cancer after a courageous fight to the end. He was a warrior throughout his battle, never giving up and always having a positive attitude. In his words, "No one said this was going to be easy."

Mike always said he was going to fight, and he did that day in and day out. A quote by Jim Beaver describes how hard Mike fought, "Today we fight. Tomorrow we fight. The day after we fight. And if this disease plans on whipping us, it better bring a lunch, 'cause it's gonna be a long day doing it."

Mike's world revolved around his wife and children. Brittany was the love of Mike's life, and he was hers. He treasured Maxwell and Levi and embraced every moment with them. We always would hear Mike say, "My boys." Mike loved his wife and sons with 'everything' in him and he fought hard every single day just to stay with them. Mikes' passing has left a huge empty hole in all our hearts and his presence is going to be greatly missed.

Mike was known as Mike Mo, Mikey or MoShow and was loved by many. There was something about Mike that left a huge impact on those who he met, people just fell in love with him. Every time Mike would walk into a room, he would light it up with his contagious smile.

Mike will be remembered for his great sense of humor and his bigger than life personality. Anyone who knew Mike knew him for his one liners. One of his favorites was, "Get It in Ya!" That saying will live on forever.

Mike absolutely adored his mother and loved his father and sister. He was also extremely close to all his family who became “Mike's Army” through this difficult time. He loved hanging with his friends who he considered family as well. Mike was born and raised in Surrey where he met most of his lifelong friends and made many traditions that will be carried on in his honor.

Mike loved hockey, with his favorite team being the Pittsburgh Penguins. He has played since he was a young boy and had a killer shot with his speed beating all the adults. Mikes most recent hockey teams he played for was the Marauders and the Outlaws to which he was the heartbeat of the team. Mike's hockey number has always been 11 and respectively the Marauder’s retired his jersey in honor of his memory.

Mike will be forever missed and remembered by family and friends as a loving husband and father, a wonderful son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, son-in-law, co-worker and a very loyal friend.

We would like to thank the staff in the Palliative Care unit at Burnaby General Hospital as they showed Mike so much love and support and did absolutely everything, they could for him.
