Morley was born in Winnipeg, MB on March 10, 1947 and moved to Calgary in 1980. In 1982, he married his wife, Kimberly.
Morley was a passionate entrepreneur, a pool shark, and a successful salesman. He was happy to talk real estate to anyone who would listen. He had a quick wit, loved a good joke and was an avid storyteller. He was always willing to help someone in need. His infectious personality, smile, and stories will be greatly missed.
Besides his cherished wife of 39 years, Kimberly, Morley is survived by his two loving children, Lauren (Eric) and Molly. He is also survived by his brother who was also his best friend and sister-in-law, Joey and Sharon. Morley was predeceased by his parents, Isadore and Ruth Minuk; and his sister Dorothy (Minuk) Bergman.

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)
Morley Minuk joined our class in Victory School when he and his family moved to Kilbride Avenue, which is also where I lived. He sat in the desk in front of mine in grade 3. Morley was extremely entertaining. One of his habits was to ask me, “Where’s the Brylcreem?” I would hand him my bottle of thick, brown glue. He would apply a liberal amount to his palm, rub his hands together and run them through his hair. I enjoyed knowing Morley, but our family moved away when the school year ended and I often wondered what became of him. It’s welcome news to hear of his success and the high opinions of those around him. He seems to have lived a good life and I wish sincere condolences to those who will miss him. R.I.P. old friend! - Posted by: Bill Stevens (Classmate) on: Apr 10, 2021
