Obituary

Copeland, Morley Leo
July 16, 1944 - September 25, 2019

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Morley Copeland on Wednesday, September 25, 2019 at the age of 75.
Morley will be forever loved and remembered by his wife Jean; daughters Kim Copeland and Kristi (Adam) Kuss; grandsons Kaden and Beckham Kuss; granddogs Jax and Griffin; sister Maureen Wasend; as well as numerous family members and friends. He was predeceased by his parents Leo and Zada Copeland and brother-in-law Ron Wasend.

Morley defined the word loyal. He was married to Jean for 50 years, was a funeral director at Leyden’s Funeral Home for his entire 53-year career, and never quit cheering for the Calgary Flames. He loved watching his grandsons play hockey, vacationing in Mexico with Jean and the family and spending time with his granddogs.

The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff at Rockyview General Hospital, Unit 94 for all of their care and support.

Funeral Service will be held at Foothills Alliance Church (333 Edgepark Blvd NW) on Monday, September 30, 2019 at 11:30 am with visitation one hour prior to service. Graveside Service to follow at Eden Brook Memorial Gardens. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to AARCS (www.aarcs.ca).

Sorry for the lose Jean. Just heard this morning of this bad news. Just remembering us sharing a rum at the dealership. We always said we became very smart people after a few. Great guy great scence of humor Always said to my wife if I was going to die I would want Morley to take care of me. Have not talked to much to him since we moved away. He called me about a year ago we had a good chuckle. Again sorry for loss. He will be missed he was one of the good ones.

Jean, Kristi, Kim & Family. I am sad and shocked to hear of Morley's passing. We are 1st cousins, but for much of our younger years we were also "best buds". We spent a lot of time together (a good portion of that getting into potential trouble). I have so many good memories of Morley..way too many to write about here. I loved Morley's sense of humour. We went to school together, played hockey & golf together, lived together, and almost drove Maureen crazy. I remember a time when we were playing hockey in front of a full house at the Claresholm arena, and at some point in the dressing room before the game, Morley managed to put a piece of black tape on the blade of one of my skates without me seeing it. When we ran from the dressing room and jumped on the ice for the pre-game skate, I proceeded to fall on my butt. I got up, took another step aand fell again. After about 4 falls I noticed Morley laughing his butt off and encouraging the fans to give me a standing ovation which they did, much to my embarrassment. Even though we haven't seen much of each other the past 30 years, Morley will always hold a special place in my heart. RIP my dear friend. I will see you again.

Morley was such a big part of our lives, and a larger-than-life genuine friend. So much of what I learned about how to be a good embalmer and Funeral Director came from Morley, and I will always treasure our talks over the years. His loss will leave a big hole in our lives.
