1953-2009

Gary L Morice
It is with profound sadness that we announce that Gary Morice, 56, with his loving family by his side, passed away on Dec 13, 2009 at the Moncton Hospital after a brief illness.

Born in Sackville, he was the son of Reta (Wells) Morice and the late William Morice.

Gary will be forever missed by Sylvia, his soul mate and loving wife of 37 years, son Shane, Fort McMurray, AB, daughter Erin, Halifax, NS, mother Reta, brothers Christopher, Sackville, John, Kelowna, BC, Jeffrey (Annette Leblanc), Sackville, Darrel (Kathie), Sackville, sister Debbie (Ronald Chapman), Sackville, several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews, and in-laws Cecil Hicks (Vivien) Sackville, Les Hicks (Faye), Edmonton, AB, James Hicks, Victoria, BC and Sharon Hicks, Fredericton, NB. Gary was predeceased by his father William and brother Richard (Darlene).

Gary was a proud employee of RBC for 38 years until retiring Nov 30, 2009 due to his illness. During his lengthy career he lived in Moncton NB, Bathurst NB, St. John NB, Port Hawkesbury NS, Placentia NL, Newcastle NB, Arichat, NS, and St. John’s NL, before returning to Sackville NB in Dec 2000 as manager of RBC Sackville.

Gary was a loving husband and a devoted father. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends at home and at his cottage. He also enjoyed yearly hunting trips to his brother Darrel’s camp every fall and countless weekends throughout the year spent with best friends Bob and Dolly Pollard.

Gary’s caring nature spurred him to be involved with various boards and organizations throughout the years, including Rotary (Sackville and Moncton NB), Sackville Memorial Hospital Foundation, Sackville Chamber of Commerce, Lions’ Club (Newcastle, NB), Special Olympics (St. John’s NL), and Richmond School Board (Arichat, NS).

Arrangements have been entrusted to the Jones Funeral Home, 70 Bridge St., Sackville, NB (506-364-1300) where a Memorial Service to celebrate Gary's life will be held on Friday, December 18, 2009 at 2 pm.

Those wishing to make a donation in Gary's memory may do so to the Sackville Memorial Hospital Foundation or the charity of one's choice.
