Wilson, Morton Stanton Frank It is with indescribable sadness that we announce the passing of Morton Stanton Frank Wilson, age 82 of Wilsons’ Cove which occurred December 28, 2021 in St. Mary’s Memorial Hospital, Sherbooke.

Beloved father, gramp, great-grampy, brother and friend. The most selfless, kind hearted, hardworking, talented, loving man to ever walk the earth; his passing leaves us all with a void that can never be filled.

From teaching how to set rabbit snares, growing pumpkins, singing the pumpkin song, secret jokes, jumping spiders and instructing the "proper" way to mow the lawn, he left his grandchildren with nothing but the fondest of memories. He always made sure they knew how proud he was of all of them and how much he loved them.

The birth of his great-grandson Ashton, in October, filled him with immense pride, and he took every opportunity to tell anyone he was a "Great-Grampy"!

The last couple of years he was very grateful to spend valuable time with his nephew Billy Boutilier (Anne), "helping him with his cottage with whom he held a special bond with. This made him very happy. 

Within him he possessed the strength of ten men, but also had a gentle, feather light touch when it came to his girls and a paintbrush.

Hands that once, effortlessly lifted pulpwood and boulders as if they were cotton balls could instantly turn cushions to hug his family and by the grace of God was able to cradle Ashton before leaving us for the place where Angels on earth return to.

He instilled in us all to be thankful for what we have, to not want more than you need and share what you have when possible.

If you were lucky enough to know Morton than you were truly blessed. His life, love, stories and memory will forever live on in those of us who held him most dear.

Morton is survived by his daughter, Amanda, Wilsons’ Cove; son, Robert (Kerry), Porters Lake; grandchildren, Heidie (Devan), Sierra, Abbey, Joshua, Lex; great-grandson, Ashton Eugene Mills; brother, Lawrence, Liscomb; sister, Hazel, Ottawa; countless nieces, nephews and their families; he was predeceased by his wife, Ethel; brothers, Harold, Fred, Wilbert, Edwin, Floyd in infancy; Everett, Jim; sisters, Winnifred, Anna, Ada and Rosalie.

A private family graveside service will be held on Wednesday, January 5th at 2 p.m. in St. Luke’s Anglican Cemetery, Liscomb with Rev. Kristin MacKenzie officiating. All COVID-19 restrictions will be followed including proof of full vaccination. Memorial donations may be made to St. Luke’s Anglican Church, Liscomb.

Funeral arrangements are under the dignified and compassionate care of G.W. Giffin Funeral Home, St. Mary's Chapel, Sherbrooke.
