MORIN, EDWARD ERNEST "TED"
Life Membership Award, Royal Canadian Legion, Br. No. 228, Stirling
Peacefully entered into rest at the Belleville General Hospital on Thursday, April 4, 2019 with family by his side. Ted Morin of Stirling died at the age of 92. He was the son of the late Ernest & Agnes Morin (nee Tyler) and husband for 64 years of the late June (nee Bowins). Ted was the loving father of the late Paul Morin, his first born who passed at the age of 10, Susan Morin (Faye) of Maple Ridge, BC, Linda Peers (Roy) of Stirling, Alan Morin (Sharon) of Pickering and Frances Baillie (Dean) of Canmore, AB. He was grandfather of Juliet, Dylane, Kayleigh, Colin, Emily, Ross, Jared, Jason and Shauna and great-grandfather of Dawson, Sunny, Kai and Mary. Ted is survived by his sister Shirley Nock of Scarborough and Jack Morin of Bowmanville and predeceased by his sister Patricia Legge. He will be fondly remembered by his many nieces and nephews.
Ted was born in Montreal and grew up in Toronto where he married June and raised their family. He enjoyed a long career at Canada Cartage. Ted ensured his family spent every summer at the cottage or camping, where Ted instilled the love of the outdoors and adventure in all his children. The family never spent a summer in the city, always enjoying lake time, and every weekend year round was another “family adventure” as he called them. Once retired they spent several winters in Florida and summers on Rice Lake. In his golden years they settled in Stirling where he became very involved in the Royal Canadian Legion as an active volunteer while never missing a legion event. Ted always said that moving to Stirling was the best decision he ever made. Special thanks to Barb and the staff at Stirling Towers for giving Dad such exceptional care over the past few years ensuring his final golden years were truly golden.
