We knew him and Eleanor from Voyager. Appreciated his humour when he was the guest speaker at the Oregon-Washington party twice . Such good stories he shared with that twinkle and smile . Our deepest sympathies to Eleanor and family.

It was very sad news to hear about Morley’s passing and my heartfelt thoughts go out to Eleanor and family. He and I had a special friendship and to this day I refer to him as my “guardian angel”. I met Morley in 1984 when he hired me to work at ACT. He played cupid and set up a date for me with Ken, the architect for the organization, who became my husband of 30 years. When he set up the Lions Club TV Bingo and I was a stay at home mom, he hired me to reconcile the bingo card sales & money sent in by the Lions Clubs throughout Alberta. A few years after his retirement with the RV Dealers Association of Alberta, he called me to say they needed an Executive Assistant and that the job was mine if I was interested. He sent me copies of his wisely written “Rules for Life” to give to my 3 children and I’d many times get a call from him on my birthday, with a “Hey kiddo, Happy Birthday”. Morley and Ken had a lot of respect for each other and both had a unique sense of humour. Ken passed away in 2014 and it’s my hope that they are rekindling their friendship.

* Our hearts are so saddened with the loss of Morley. He was a big part of our lives at the Voyager. Right away he invited Jim to golf with him at Davis Monthon. Morley loved to golf. Morley & Eleanor loved to go to dances every weekend. They often won the competition for a best jitterbug couple.
* When anyone would meet Morley he would give them a big hug and a peck on the cheek. He was always so friendly. Morley was a tall good looking example of fitness. He was in to exercise and taking care of his body.
* Eleanor and he joined a bicycle group and went every week. Morley was going to be sure on his 80th birthday to ride 80 miles. I think he did.
* Morley was a member of the Lions Club and wherever he was in the world he made sure he found a place to attend that meeting. That says a lot about who he is.
* One time we needed an MC for a Minnesota party and we heard how friendly and funny Morley was so we asked him if he would be our entertainer. He excepted and everyone just loved him. He was so funny. I think he MC’d a lot of the parties after that and I know for sure all the Canada ones.
* We spent a lot of time with Morley & Eleanor playing bridge. We had a Chicago bridge a duplicate bridge and a three table social bridge where we entertain at our homes every month.
* One time when Eleanor was with her Red Hat friends at the Voyager restaurant Morley decided to disrupt it. He actually streaked in front of everybody through the whole restaurant. Everybody was in hysterics it was so funny.
* That was Morley always joking always having fun always being great to be with. We will surely miss him.
* We love you Eleanor and know that God will walk with you and give you peace.
* We truly hope that sometime you can come back to the Voyager. There is always a place for you at our home.
* Our love Shari and Jim.

I’m so sorry to hear of the loss of this special fellow. Morley was a good friend to my now deceased husband, Roger Kaun and I know that Roger thought very well of him. I always enjoyed the opportunities I had to visit with Morley and Eleanor, a warm and wonderful pair.

My condolences to you Eleanor and your children and grandchildren. I’m sure Morley will be sorely missed.


Barry Lashmar

First met Morley in 1971. A great guy. Known to some as “The Bird” left a smile every where he went. All tributes are well deserved . He will be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him . Had not spoken to him in some time but called him a few weeks ago & am so glad I did.

Eleanor & family,
I have so many special memories of Morley. This expresses how Morley touched my life during the time I was his Executive Assistant – “ Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Others stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts and we are never the same.” Morley touched many hearts and made a difference in so many lives during his earthly journey – I know he did mine! Know that he loved and was so proud of his family. Although I can’t be with in the celebration of Morley’s life, my love and thoughts are with you,

Joan Giles

Dear Eleanor and family: 27 years ago the Peacocks and Giles were happily joined with the marriage of Allison and Lindsay . Sadly George didn’t make it to their wedding but Morley carried on as father and friend to Lindsay.
Sadly we are now saying farewell to another fine husband, father, Grandfather and friend. Eleanor, it is tough to say goodbye but your memories, like mine, will always be there.
Much love and condolences, to you and all the family.

Morley was a dear friend that we met in Tucson. They moved their 5th wheel in next to us and we became friends. This loss brings me great sadness but I bet he’s in Heaven playing golf with Bill and Jim. God Bless you Morley.

Sending lots of prayers to you eleanor and the family. We have a spare room in case you ever want to make a trip to voyager, we’d love to have you visit


Laurene Park and Bill Long

I have known Morley for 71 years having met in Devon. We all were in a gang of friends together for many, many years. We all enjoyed each other so much and had many get togethers throughout the years. We had Love Boat parties, Mystery Parties, Halloween dress up parties, Grey Cup parties, celebrated bringing in the new year together always and many, many more. Those are times we will treasure forever. Renee Park and Bill Long

Deb Stewart

So sad to hear of my uncle’s passing. All our thoughts are with the Peacock family. We’re in Ottawa, so cannot attend, but we will be thinking of you. Sean and Chad.

Robin & Dexter

Morley has left a wonderful legacy for us all to remember – love big, live large and don’t let age get in the way of either. Condolences to the entire family from us. Hugs and sympathy.

Lesley and John Cowan

We were so saddened to hear of Morley’s passing and send our love and sympathy to Eleanor and the family. Morley and Eleanor are related to us through the marriage of Lesley’s brother, Lindsay, to Allison, and we have always felt included in the Peacock clan. Morley and Eleanor came and stayed with us in Sydney, Australia and we remember that well. We wish we were closer and could travel freely but our thoughts are with you all.

Pat/Peg Sloan

A kind, thoughtful and dear friend; a “senior” athlete; a great dancer; a lover of nature; the best golfer on “Duffers II”; a better than average poker player; a gracious host; strategic card player; amazing work ethic, dedicated Lion; loved kissing the ladies…..but above all, a loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. We will forever miss the sparkle in your eyes, the mischievous smile and your gorgeous curly hair.

Darlene Hilgartner

Eleanor and family,
Those we love do not go away; they walk beside us in our hearts & memories…
In time may special memories & the love of family/friends ease your pain & bring peace.

Morley was a very special person who will be truly missed.

Our hearts are broken for you…..
Darlene & Ross Hilgartner

Patricia Amy Robertson

I will always remember Morley as a fun-loving, peaceful man who was devoted to his family. I didn’t get to meet him too many times, but my impressions of the times I did were of a very positive person. A big loss.

So sorry for all of you. Amy
