It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved father, Angus Godfrey Morrison, Dec. 26, 2012, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital’s An Cala unit with his three loving daughters by his side.
Angus was born and raised in Glace Bay, the youngest son of the late Michael and Catherine (MacDonald) Morrison.
He was a resident of Sydney Road, Reserve Mines, since 1969, and a former summer resident of Morrison Lane, North Side East Bay. He was a millwright by trade and was employed in various positions over his working years; including the Sydney Naval Base, the Glace Bay machine shop, the Sydney steel plant and retired from Atomic Energy of Canada in Glace Bay in 1986. He was a faithful member of St. Joseph’s parish, Reserve Mines, where he was a past member of the parish counsel, and also served as a eucharistic minister.
As an avid ice skater and swimmer, he spent many enjoyable hours at the Glace Bay Bayplex, as well as the Kiwanis Pool in Sydney. He could also be seen by many walking in the early hours of the morning as a way to start his day.
He was predeceased by his wife, Gertrude Morrison (Gillis) in 2000, his three daughters, survive him, Rosemary (Bill) Slattery, Halifax, Michele (Dannie) Steele, Dartmouth, and Joan (Glenn) Lewis, Reserve Mines.

His sister Mary MacLennan, Halifax; and many nieces and nephews also survive him.
