Dennis Morrison

Dennis Wayne Morrison, 78, passed away on the morning of Saturday, December 30th, 2017 after a short struggle with pancreatic cancer.

Dennis, the son of Charles Morrison and Martha James, was born on August 14th, 1939 in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

He is survived by his wife of 46 years, Dale (nee Balbirnie) Morrison; his older brother, William, who unfortunately passed away the next day; his daughters, Debbie (David) and Denise; his son, George (Pam); his grandchildren, Leslie, Lindsey, Travis (Randi), Randina, Grandin, and Tenille; and his great grandson Mason. He was predeceased by his brother Buddy.

He married the love of his life, Dale Balbirnie, on July 17th, 1971 in Vancouver, BC. From there, they moved around the province until finally settling in Cache Creek, BC. In the winter they would head south to their home away from home in Parker Dam, California.

A Celebration of Dennis’ life will be held at later date.

If friends so desire, a memorial donation in Dennis’ name may be made to the BC Cancer Society.

    Hi Dale, I was so shocked to hear about Dennis after just seeing and reconnecting with you before Christmas. My heartfelt wishes and sympathy are with you and the family during this difficult time. I’ll always remember the good times we had at Blue Lake and Big Bar, playing cards by the water’s edge, and all the fun times we had curling in Ashcroft. Please keep in touch.
