MORGAN, David Rees
Born January 16, 1930, passed away peacefully April 13, 2008 at Saint_James Cottage Hospice in Vancouver after a four year fight with Brain Cancer.
David was the National President of Veteran's Against Nuclear Arms, a founding member of Canadians Against the Cruise, a long time member of End the Arms Race, a founding member of the Coalition in Solidarity with the People of Iraq, first treasurer of And more recently in spite of his illness, David who loved to sing, joined the Solidarity Notes Labour Choir.

On his retirement, he wrote a book, Sleep Secrets for Shift Workers.
However, David never retired from the peace movement. He worked tirelessly to educate people about the horrors of Nuclear Weapons and the dangers from the hundreds of nuclear armed missiles which can be launched on a moments notice. As a poet, he wrote many poems warning of these dangers and he was happiest reading his poems or giving a talk on the dangers that the world faces from accidental or deliberate nuclear war. David represented Veteran's Against Nuclear Arms on Remembrance Days by going into the schools and telling classrooms of children that "war is a preventable disaster".
David loved children. He has one daughter, Judith TARLAIAN, and two sons, Daniel and Peter MORGAN and from his union with Linda, three step-sons, Sean, Kevin, and Jason PAYNE.
