Linda, So sorry to hear of your husband’s passing. Sincere condolences to you and your family.

To the Colbourne Family,

While you may not know me, Morgan sharpened my skates for a lifetime. It didnt matter if it was day or night, a holiday or a week day he was always open and had a smile on his face.

Those few moments of interaction with him very week were always pleasant and heartwarming.

Morgan has touched more people then we all realise because most people in the local skating world know him and remember his kindness.

I was blessed to have crossed paths with him.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family as you celebrate a wonderful man’s life.

Regards,

Jeff

My condolences. Such a loss to us all. I have so many memories of my interviews with Morgan under the trees out in the backyard on Major’s path under the watchful eyes of “The Mother-in-laws.” The cast net he gave still hangs in my music room, I never could learn to throw it the way he showed me.

Linda, Tracy, Kerri, Brenda and families. Dave and I were saddened to hear of Uncle Morgan’s passing. We both have very fond memories, I more than Dave of course as Morgan was such a large part of my childhood. He will truly be missed for all his shenanigans and his kind heart. Take comfort in knowing that he is now at rest in a much better place. Our love to all of you.

Linda and family,

My deepest regards. Morgan was a rare man who had a place so many people in his life, I knew a part of him and I will always remember.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your Dad. I will always remember how nice he was to us growing up. My thoughts and sympathy are with you and your Mom during this sad time.

So sorry to hear of Morgan’s passing. Morgan was “Anybody’s friend, Everbody’s friend”

Very sorry to hear the passing of a really close friend. I’m still completely shocked by this and struggle each day passing by your home. You were a very special person to our entire neighbourhood always funny , the most positive person I ever met , you always carried a big smile, always found the good in everything, would give anyone the clothes off your back or anything else they wanted if you could. You had a big heart. I’ll miss our walks around the block , our fishing trips , all you thought me about skate sharpening, firearms and so much more. The nights you spent with us at darts , all your stories (and boy you had a lot) will all be missed. Even with your Parkinson’s you never let life get you down and you smiled through all of it and remained positive. I miss you so much. Rest my friend. Linda I’m here for Anything you need as always.

Linda, Brenda, Tracey and Kerri,

Anita and I are so sad to hear of Morgan’s passing away. We are very sorry for your loss. Morgan was a treasure to be around and we enjoyed every minute with him. He was wonderful person with endless stories and endless love. He took wonderful care of Mom Ella who loved him dearly as well. We are thinking of you at this time and wish you and the extended family all the best. Thanks for the memories Morgan love you. Sean and Anita.

To Morgan’s Family: I am so sorry to hear of Morgan’s Death. We grew up together in St. Anthony. He is my third cousin. Morgan was a great guy, admired by all who knew him. May you find comfort in knowing that you are surrounded by love and courage during these days. (the last time I saw Morg, he was down in Middle Cove Beach with his rubber boots on catching caplin by the bucket full!).

Kerri and the entire Colbourne family,

I’m so sorry to hear about your dads passing. I have such fond memories of him. The only thing sharper then the skates he touched was his wit. He made us laugh countless times. Sending my deepest condolences at this difficult time.
