Morley Louis Lessard

June 17, 1938 - October 27, 2013


Morley Lessard was born in Prince Rupert, BC on June 17, 1938 and passed away in Nelson on October 27, 2013.

Morley is predeceased by his sister Carole Cooper and his mother Clara “Mae” Danielson. He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Pauline Lessard, his three children and spouses, Paul and Rebecca Lessard of Castle Rock, Colorado, Lori and Rollie Koop of Parksville, BC, Randy and Ann Lessard of Kamloops, BC. Morley is also survived by his six grandchildren, Britt (Justin) Dealy, Isaac Lessard, Dakota and Brandon Koop, Montana and Zane Lessard.

Morley began his career as a repairman with Royal Typewriter and later moved into sales where he found great success and satisfaction. He finished his career in the printing business in Vancouver, BC. Upon retirement Morley and Pauline moved to Balfour BC, where he enjoyed playing Santa at the Chahko Mika Mall. Morley loved to read and enjoyed writing stories and poems for his children. He had several articles published in the Covenant Companion, the magazine of the Evangelical Covenant Church. Morley had a strong faith in God and a heart for those for whom life had been difficult. Morley served in many leadership roles over the years in the churches he attended. He enjoyed travelling and in particular liked the west coast of Oregon and Washington. He loved to sing and had a wonderful voice, even singing tenor on a record in the 60s.  Morley was an avid fisherman and liked to take his grandkids out on his boat. He was fascinated with trains and in retirement enjoyed collecting and assembling model trains. He had a weakness for licorice, the Canucks and the BC Lions.
