MORGAN, Shawn

Shawn Morgan passed away peacefully at 7:15, February 17, 2015 after a courageous battle with cancer.

Shawn is survived by his loving wife Susan of 23 years. Shawn is tenderly remembered by his wife Susan as her one true love and an amazing father. In Susan’s words, “Shawn was ‘my everything’ and I feel privileged and blessed to have been his wife. I am truly a better person because of Shawn”.

He was also the devoted and adoring father of his two sons Justin and Nathan who were the center of his life. He loved playing and coaching hockey and would flood the backyard each year for an ice rink for the boys and neighborhood kids. Shawn also loved his summers at Lake Windermere, driving the boat, golfing, biking and hanging out at Shadybrook. Shawn enjoyed life fully, especially when he was in the company of “his Susan, Justin and Nate”. He will be deeply missed.

He graduated from Lindsay Thurber High School in 1987 and went on to earn a Degree in Commerce from University of Calgary. He worked as a Certified Financial Planner for TE Wealth where he had numerous clients whom he loved consulting for.

    I am deeply saddened to hear of Sean’s passing. We will always remember his quick smile that immediately brightened up the room, his sharp wit and of course his zip around the hockey ice. He was quite the little fellow and grew up to be a fine wonderful man. Our thoughts and condolences to each member of his family. He will be truly missed.
    Sincerely,
    Judy and Glen

  4. To the Morgan family,

    I remember starting my son’s hockey career in Timbits with Nat and Sean as a fellow coach and hockey dad. Sean was always smiling and positive, this continued on over the years as we shared buses together on our way to work. I will miss his gentle nature.

    Sean and your family will be in our prayers and our thoughts now and in the future.
    Please take care of yourselves and his sons.

    God Bless you all!
