My Uncle Kelly was a man who called me during some of the most important and painful times in my life. Advice, support, and encouragement were all things he gave in abundance without judgement.
Although months would sometimes go by between our conversations, whenever we did talk, we would talk for hours. Our shared love for electronic music was something that caught me by surprise, & it's something that initiated a legitimate connection between us in my adult years.
From childhood to adulthood, he carried a genuine excitement in his voice through every conversation we had. Never once did I see him angry or sad, I have only the happiest memories of him. He genuinely enjoyed sharing the lessons and stories he obtained throughout his life, and I genuinely enjoyed hearing his long winded stories of the many places he lived and travelled to.
He was an incredible story teller, no matter the topic.
My first memory of him is of the time he saved me from drowning in the neighbourhood pool, my last memory of him is having a 2 hour conversation on the phone, where I received plenty of well-timed advice on my next step in life as I sat in my hotel room at the halfway point of moving from Alberta to BC. From my first memory of him to my last, he had a knack for always being there at the right time.
His sudden passing leaves a legitimate empty feeling in my heart. I will miss his endless amount of eventful stories, his incredibly insightful perspectives on the world, & his impeccable timing for calling out of the blue when I needed it the most.
I love you Uncle Kelly, I wish we had more time. Rest In Peace.

I had the pleasure of working with Kelly during the past six months. Kelly had an incredible sense of humor and I really enjoyed our conversations. He was also extremely compassionate and he always wanted to help customers who needed financial aid the most.
Kelly was an instrumental part of the team and he will be dearly missed. My deepest condolences to Kelly's entire family.

Our Family and the Morgan Family knew each other since 1968. The late Ron and Bev Morgan were both heavily involved in the Fort McMurray Social and Local Government Scene.
Their family and ours grew up together just a few streets apart. While Ron was the second longest serving City Councillor in Alberta, I was his Campaign Manager.
The name MORGAN remains one of the very best known names in Northern Alberta and that includes First Nations and Metis Peoples.
Kelly was very talented and an expert at restoring old pictures. I am deeply shocked and saddened at his passing. All our family deepest condolences to his brothers and sisters,
May he rest in peace. Requiescat in Pace.
