SKLAR, Morley Gerald
November 12, 1936 - September 19, 2015
Morley Gerald Sklar, beloved husband of Karen, passed away on September 19, 2015. Morley will always be remembered with love by his adored children and grandchildren Sandi Cohen (Joel), Rachel and Samara; Julie Fogler (Anthony) and Brody: Ross (Marin), Jack and Mila. He is also survived by his two sisters Ethel Caplan and Lillian Martin, his brother Coleman (Arlene) and his brother-in-law Elliot Gelfand (Dena) as well as many nephews and nieces. Morley was a long- time and respected businessman and owner of the British Boot Shops in Calgary for over 40 years. He was a natural artist with a deep appreciation for style and beauty. He loved all sports and was a talented athlete including golf, baseball, hockey, running and squash. His happiest times were those spent with our family. He quietly and humbly supported many charitable organizations. We remember him for his glowing personality and charisma, his up lifting disposition and zest for life, his kindness and generosity and for his love of his family. Our deep sense of loss and emptiness will be filled by our wonderful and warm memories.

Karen and family. I was so sorry to hear of Morley's passing. I will always remember our conversations in Chinook Centre when he had his office beside mine in the tower and we were a couple of retailers in the Mall. He was a great guy.
