David Adley MORRIS
By Samantha SELINGER- MORRIS, Wednesday, April 6, 2005, Page A20
Father, military historian. Born March 1, 1946, in Toronto. Died December 8, 2004, of brain cancer, aged 58.
My father's life was -- like his favourite candies, licorice allsorts -- one of great variety. In career alone, he worked as a draftsman, computer programmer and teacher's assistant. His duties ranged from helping students with severe physical disabilities at Northview Heights Secondary School, to travelling Ontario setting up the Internet, in its early days, for army bases.
The one thread of consistency that ran through his life was his role as a military historian. From the age of 16, he began religiously taking notes on the Canadian militia, that amorphous group of men across the country who, independently of the British army, defended Canada before it had established its own army. No napkin, movie stub or bus transfer was safe from my father's hard, angular scribbles. And no family holiday was free from visits to war memorials, armories or shops (where he would pick up medals for his extensive collection). He regularly visited the government archives in Ottawa and the Royal Military College in Kingston to research the lives of militia men whose efforts had largely been forgotten over time.
A lifelong member of the army reserves, he was awarded the C.D. (Canadian Forces Decoration) for 12 years of army service.
He had an appetite for other things, of course. His ability to eat a huge ball of ice cream in one bite, without diverting his gaze away from the newspaper he always read at the dinner table, was legendary in our family. But, second to loving Sylvia, his wife of 37 years, his brother Leslie, myself and my brother, Stuart, his heart belonged to the military. In 1983, his lifetime of research culminated in the publication of his book, The Canadian Militia, from 1855: an historical summary, a never-before documented evolution of the country's militia from 1855-1983.
I remember stumbling upon my father's book in the McGill University library, while I was a student there, and clutching it to my chest with a fierce surge of pride.
But the truth is, I never understood my father's passion for the subject until I began talking to Friends and family.
Bob GALBRAITH, one of my father's closest Friends and a Canadian army veteran, helped by telling me about the part of my father's extensive medal collection relating specifically to the Mons Retreat.
Marking the first 80 days of the First World War, the campaign saw the British troops slaughtered by a far larger German force in Belgium.
"There were three million Germans compared with 180,000 British," says Bob.
"It was like David and Goliath, and David was half dead, but David won," he says, referring to the eventual British victory.
I finally grasped my father's love of military history: the soldiers had guts. It's one thing to enter battle with the knowledge that your side is likely to win; it's another matter entirely to go in fighting knowing that you'll likely die. My father didn't choose his toughest battle -- his fight for his life -- but he approached it with the same sort of mettle as the men he studied.
For the nine months in which he endured numerous bouts of chemotherapy and radiation, he remained unflinchingly positive. His feisty sense of humour never faltered, and he still took incredible pleasure in his favourite things -- a great tuna sandwich, a trip to the book shop up the road from his home, a walk in the park.
Ever mindful that his life would be tragically cut short, he would tell me that he wondered what sort of legacy he would leave behind. And this is what I told him: On top of spending 31 years with me as a boisterous, loving father, he taught me how to live with courage and dignity. And for that I am eternally grateful.
Samantha is David's daughter.
