In Loving Memory of Charles Morrison

Charles MorrisonIt is with heavy hearts and deep sadness that we at Morrison Reist Krauss LLP announce the passing of our dear friend and retired partner, Charles Morrison.

Charles Morrison was one of the two founding partners of our law firm and he served as a cherished partner to Melanie and Pamela until his retirement in 2023. He was a compassionate, supportive and kind man– both in matters of law and of life. He made efforts to ensure we all focused on doing the right thing in our work and lightened the environment on the hardest of days with his humor. Charles was a gracious and easy-going person and together with Melanie Reist created a firm that encouraged values of authenticity and fulfillment in our work with a focus on wellness and family.

We at Morrison Reist Krauss LLP have benefited and grown from the support and encouragement from Charles and we offer our heartfelt condolences to his wife Carey, children Madelaine (Paul), Rachel (Dave) and Mark (Amanda) and their families. We know that Carey and their children and extended family will miss Charles terribly. Charles retired from the practice of family law in July 2023 after over 40 years of dedication to the profession.  In his time away from the office Charles was a dedicated member of the Kitchener Chamber of Commerce and A.R. Kauffman and Stork YMCAs, world traveler, loving spouse, supportive father, grandpa, poet and rapper (do ask when you see one of us).

A drop in Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday June 8, 2024 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm with eulogies to begin at 12pm at the Westmount Memorial Center located at 1001 Ottawa St S, Kitchener, ON. The family would appreciate any donations in Charles’ name to go to either the Grand River Regional Cancer Centre or the YMCA of Three Rivers.
