MORGAN, Kirk Roland

July 20, 1957 – Calgary, AB
October 11, 2016 – Calgary, AB

We are saddened to announce the passing of Kirk Morgan. He passed away at the Rockyview General Hospital the morning of October 11, 2016 at the age of 59, after a long, hard fought battle with Multiple Sclerosis.

Kirk was born in Calgary and grew up in the community of Parkdale, graduating from Queen Elizabeth High School in 1975. From there, he attended Northeastern University in Boston and the University of Calgary. Kirk worked his entire career in Calgary as a chartered accountant; a career that he absolutely loved. Kirk loved the outdoors and lived an active life, growing up playing hockey, water skiing, hiking the West Coast Trail and traveling to Nepal.

Kirk is survived and will be deeply missed by his sister Valerie Schafer; his brother and his wife, Garth and Janet; his nieces, Michelle Morgan (Jason Van’t Hullenaar) and Erin (Colin) Burns; his nephew Reece Schafer; and two great-nieces Atley and Martie Burns. Kirk was predeceased by his parents Angus and Blanche Morgan and his brother-in-law Roger Schafer.

“Everything happens for a reason, live it, love it, and learn from it! Make your smile change the world but don’t let the world change your smile.”

A Celebration of Kirk’s Life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY (Deerfoot South, 12281 – 40th Street S.E.) on Sunday, October 23, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. Forward condolences through If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made “In Memory of Kirk Morgan” directly to the Canadian Red Cross Society, Southern Alberta Region, 2nd Floor, 1305 – 11st Avenue S.W., Calgary, AB T3C 3P6, Telephone: (403) 541-6100, or to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada, Calgary & Area Chapter, 150, 110 Quarry Park Blvd. S.E., Calgary, AB T2C 3G3 Telephone: (403) 250-7090,

  1. I am so sorry for your loss. I was a school friend from Parkdale and U of C. I studied with Kirk along with Grant Sardachuck and shared many laughs and fond memories. I had a nice visit with him about a year ago and admired his bravery and positive outlook. I regret not keeping in better touch. Sadly I will miss his celebration as well.

    I worked with Kirk on the same staff when the accounting firm was still Clarkson Gordon. I am shocked and sad that he has died so soon and after so much suffering. I remember him as a calm and steady worker, and a really cheerful and pleasant young man to be around. He had a twinkle in his eye to match his smile.
    To Kirk’s family, I am so sorry for your loss.
