Morley was a unique individual. He marched to the beat of his own drum. He did everything he set out to do in his life. He was an avid curler and enjoyed fishing and golfing. Morley & Marlene even ran half-marathons. He spent countless hours going from auctions to flea markets to garage sales and was even featured on the Canadian Pickers TV show. He had many different collections including books, phonographs, coins and stamps and enjoyed showing them to others. He was an honorary lifetime member of the Manitoba Antique Auto Club. He was a long time Mason & Shriner and was a past “Grand Master” at his Masonic lodge. He volunteered at the Shrine Circus to help less fortunate children. Morley & Marlene never missed driving in his oversized convertible in the Shiners parades at all the Manitoba summer festivals in full Shriner regalia. Morley was a member of the Yachad Bnai Brith group and served on the board of Camp Massad.
The funeral was held at Etz Chayim Synagogue at 1:00 PM on November 28, 2017 with burial at Bnai Abraham cemetery. Cantor Tracy Kasner Greaves officiated. Pallbearers were his son Shaen Golden, his brother Earl Golden, nephews Noel & Matthew Golden, Brian Shuster and his good friend Phil Hoffer.
