Condolences

Condolence From: Mark Pivon
Condolence: One of the few people in my life who had a brief but positive and lasting impact on me. Sincerest condolences.

Condolence From: Denton Meiklejohn
Condolence: I was saddened yesterday to hear of Dr. Morgenson's passing from a friend. I was privileged to have had the opportunity to take two senior Psych courses from Dr. Morgenson on my pathway to B.A. graduation from WLU with a Psych major in 1970. Luck gave me Dr. Morgenson for the first course but, for the second course, I drove a round trip of 330 miles on Saturdays because he was the professor.
There were many great professors and instructors at WLU but no classes were as enjoyable or fulfilling as Dr. Morgenson's.
Dr. Morgenson always demonstrated a high standard of instruction and evaluation, combining a perfect blend of enthusiasm, humour, experiential anecdotes, academic excellence and compassionate understanding.
In 2010, upon learning that Dr. Morgenson was still active as a professor, I sent an email note of thanks for the many ways he had inspired me as a student. I received a gracious response from him in less than 24 hours.
Dr. Morgenson was a shining beacon for many thousands of fortunate students along the way and his spirit will live on through the positive influences he exemplified.

Condolence From: Michael Ruiz
Condolence: He taught me PS-101 just over a year ago, Monday and Wednesday mornings. He was the first and greatest professor I've had. Condolences to his family, he was a great man full of wisdom.

Condolence From: Marnie
Condolence: The world is truly are darker place without him. He was by far the best teacher I ever had the privileged of knowing. I could have listened to him talk all day long. So much of what he taught - and how he taught - become the foundation for the adult I am and the children I have raised. He will be missed and never forgotten.

Condolence From: Mark McKie
Condolence: I was absolutely shattered to hear of this news. I have not been able to find the words to express my sadness and to express the wonderful influence and impact Professor Morgenson had on me, but I will try now.

I had the great fortune of being placed in Professor Morgenson's Psych 101 course 9 years ago. From the first lecture, I was hooked. The way in which he could beautifully weave examples and anecdotes from psychology, philosophy, literature, and his own wealth of life experience was unparalleled. Not to mention his wonderful wit and humour. I had not, nor have I since, witnessed such a wonderful and captivating speaker. All of this and for a Psychology 101 course! He went above and beyond. I always felt sorry for Laurier students who did not get a chance to be in his class.

Professor Morgenson opened up a whole world to me and ignited in me a passion for wonder and learning. He had a very strong ethical and moral outlook. He was extremely warm and compassionate and would light up the lecture hall with his presence. To this day, I still remember many of the life lessons he taught.

I made sure to meet him during office hours. He greeted me with a beaming smile (as he would always do). We had very interesting and pleasant discussions but what I remember most is the warm and caring atmosphere he created.

After I left Laurier, I stayed in touch with Professor Morgenson and would attend some of his lectures with my father throughout the years. My father was equally impressed to say the least.

I often think to myself when I am faced with certain decisions or situations, "What would Professor Morgenson do?"

Professor Morgenson was an extremely special and unique person. He was an exemplary man and the best role model anyone could have.

The world has lost a truly wonderful person and mind. I am deeply saddened by this but I consider myself very blessed and lucky to have known him and to have been exposed to such a wonderful atmosphere and to such wonderful lectures.

My deepest sympathies to his family,

Mark Mckie

Condolence: I had just called WLU this morning to inquire if Dr. Morgenson was still teaching. I had him for Psychology 101 back in the early 70's.
I was told about his recent passing on April 4 of this year. He was a wonderful professor who cared deeply about his students. He will be missed by so many people.

Condolence From: David Cooke
Condolence: I only recall two occasions when I ever got to speak with Dr. Morganson, once a chance meeting in a shopping mall and once when he delivered the sermon at my church (Trinity United), but I found myself profoundly influenced by his writings. I am certain his family is very proud of him. My condolences.
