Godbout, Moïse (Morris) Georges
April 10, 1920 – November 24, 2014
Born in Lauzon, QC, Morris passed away peacefully on November 24th, 2014 at the Christine Morrison Hospice in Mission, B.C. Predeceased by his wife of 47 years, Rose Alma Godbout, in 1996; good friend and companion of 12 years, Pat Campbell, in 2013.He is survived by his 10 children, George, Gerard(Deb), Paul, Jean(Joan), Therese (Leo), Richard, Eddy, Bob, Dan, Pierre, and Lenora, as well as Blessings of 17 grand-children and 12 great-grand-children. In 1938 he worked in a mine in Noranda, QC; 1939 he was conscripted by the Canadian army; in 1941 he ‘volunteered’ for the Service Corps. After 31 years of proud service to his country, and multiple postings West to East, this Master Warrant Officer retired in 1972 to Chilliwack, B.C. He went back to school for a degree in accounting. He was a very big part of St. Mary’s church. All through the years the ChilliBowl was one of his favorite places to be, as were the ANAVETS and Legion branch #4. He lived in his own home until 4 days before he passed! So inspiring! Special thanks go out to family members, care aides, as well as the hospice staff, who took such great care of him. Prayers will be held at St. Mary’s church on Friday November 28th at 8:00 p.m. Funeral mass celebration will be at St. Mary’s church on Saturday November29th at 11:00am. Interment to follow at a later date. In lieu of flowers a donation to the above hospice, or children’s hospital would be appreciated.
