October 14, 1956 – January 19, 2023
In Loving Memory ~
With profound grief and sadness, we announce the passing of Morgan Paige Hill (Paige), a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend. Predeceased by his parents Edgar and Jean Hill, Paige leaves behind his loving wife Diane, daughters Kristie (Brian) and Shannon (Mark), stepsons Craig (Christine) and Jeffrey, brother Lance (Elmira), sister Jill, grandchildren Sebastian, Jillian, Jaida, Levi, Brock, Madison, Haille and Vaughan, niece Amy (Jordan), nephew Tory and great niece Holly.
Paige was born on October 14, 1956 in Belleville, Ontario. He attended school in Madoc and secondary school in Ignace. As the eldest he grew up quickly as his mother spent much time in the hospital. Paige received his electrical apprenticeship January 1, 1976 and became an interprovincial journeyman electrician while working at Mattabi Mines. He also became Captain of the Mine Search and Rescue team. His electrical career took him across Canada from Ignace, Ontario to Havelock, Ontario, Lanigan, Saskatchewan, White River, Ontario, Mackenzie, BC, New Westminster, BC, Port Alberni, BC, and Nanaimo, BC working in the mining, wood products and pulp and paper industries. He achieved his Bachelor of General Studies Degree through Simon Fraser University in 2001 and hung out his own electrical shingle in 2006 in Port Alberni, BC before joining BC Safety Authority of Nanaimo, BC in 2010. He retired from his position as Regional Business Leader over Vancouver Island in 2020.
Sadly, Paige left us on January 19, 2023 after a defiant battle with cancer. He fought valiantly with all he had, for all he loved. His strength and mental fortitude inspired friends and loved ones who will forever cherish his memories.
The legacy of Paige will be one of love, generosity, teaching, mentoring and coaching. He was a consummate host, loved entertaining, sharing his music, playing drums for friends and family. He loved to cook, design and build, travel, SCUBA dive, boat and read. His quest for knowledge was limitless and throughout his life he practiced a combination of the Good Samaritan Act, the Mariners Act and the Golden Rule. He was also a student of the Masonic Lodges of Mackenzie, BC And Port Alberni, BC and really enjoyed the teachings and fellowships.
We would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to Dr. Cody Thomson, Dr. Warren Bell and the Palliative Care Staff and Team of Shuswap Lake General Hospital for the care and compassion they showed Paige during his illness. A big thank you to the management and staff of Fischer’s Funeral Home and our family and friends for their love, support and care.
Family and Friends are invited to attend a Celebration of Life to be held at Cedar Heights Community Association, 2316 Lakeview Drive, Blind Bay, BC At 11:00 am Saturday, March 11, 2023. A reception will follow with food and refreshments.
