WALTER RALPH MORGAN October 23, 1932 – March 2, 2013 Ralph, age 80, passed away after many health challenges – on March 2nd. Ralph is survived by his wife of 59 years, Agnes: sons, Gavin (Pam), Kerry (Sheila), and Kirby (Arliss). Daughters, Lynne (Joe), and Lorrie (Don). Grandchildren, David and Carla; Trevor and Amanda; Jennifer, Chris and Ali; and Cora and Amy. Also great grandchildren, Kody, Nik, Kaiden and Deon. On settling in Saskatoon, Ralph was employed with A.A Myers Excavating, then in later years with Globe Excavating. Ralph’s most enjoyment came from his hockey coaching years, where many friendships were made and still exist. Ralph was one of 14 children three of which still survive – Kay in Moose Jaw, Dot in Victoria and Ken in Yorkton. His family grew up on a farm at Cabri, SK, where Ralph began his love of the farm and horses. Ralph acquired his two horses, Tess and Dial and took up his horsemanship again. His great enjoyment was family trail rides and get togethers with all the family members. Dining out with Agnes and family were important to him, as well as sightseeing and gardening. As Dad, he was a stable influence and was always there to listen, advice and help out his family. He will be sadly missed and fondly remembered. There will be a missing presence at our family gatherings. At Ralph’s request there will be no funeral. A private memorial will take place at a later date. Cremation.

Agnes and family,
My heart-felt condolences on Ralph's passing. As an adult I now know and appreciate the true extent to which he helped me in my life. We did not have money at the time, but 'strangely' there were never any fees to pay for hockey, the registration, rink fees, sweaters and socks, bus trips, etc etc. I also recall him going to bat for me to support my wish to play for Victoria when others had different ideas. I remember his passion for the game as well as his generosity. His feet were surely as frozen as the rest of us as the lights swung in the wind above the rinks at Victoria in minus temperatures and we all tapped our skates while standing in the box between shifts. These are sights and sounds I will never forget. Ralph was a good man who probably had more impact on a lot of young people than he knew. Kevin Hope

To the Morgan family: Sorry to hear about Ralph's passing. I remember when he coached me in hockey and when he came to visit me in the hospital when I broke my ankle. He was a nice man and will be missed.

To the Morgan family - very sorry for your loss. Your dad was truly a mentor - in hockey and more importantly in life - Ralph's cup was always half full and I have a lot of fond memories.

Our condolences to the entire Morgan family on your loss. Knowing Ralph through hockey we were blessed to have seen his passion and generosity for the game and his family. We will never forget Ralph's generosity for a certain hockey tournament in Yorkton where he had booked and payed for the bus. He had a smile on his face watching the kids for 3 days straight. Thanks Ralph for the memories you helped create.
