MORRIS JOHN PEROZAK Q.C. Passed away March 30, 2021, peacefully at home at age 88 with his family by his side. Beloved husband of the late Stephanie Perozak (nee Samitz), loving father of Michael (Timea), Stephan (Claudine), and Ivanna (Victor), dear brother of the late Helen Smindak, adoring grandfather to Kassondra, Sascha, Matthew, Joseph, and Nicholas, and cherished friend of Nancy Pavlakovic. Born in Fort William, Ontario to parents Anastasia and Michael, Morris was a graduate of McMaster University and Osgoode Hall Law School. Morris dedicated half a century to the legal profession, opening a private law practice in 1959 and later partnering with Winchie and Lennon. As a lawyer, he was known as a fearless advocate, tirelessly hardworking, and demonstrated unwavering civility to everyone he met. He was appointed a Provincial Court Judge in 1982, retiring in 2007. Morris was a leader in the Hamilton community in countless volunteer capacities (Rotary Club, Probus Club, Hamilton Law Association, Ukrainian National Federation, and Ukrainian Professional Business Club). Morris was a gentle soul, a fierce athletic competitor and a loyal friend and confidant to countless people. His love of the outdoors inspired his children and grandchildren to follow his lead. His belief in God was resolute. May his memory be eternal.

What a lovely man. I was the new recruit judge in March, 2002, who replaced His Honour when he retired. I was appointed to preside in Brampton. I had the distinct privilege to have "sat" with him when he did some per diem work there. A real role model and hero to me.

Dear Michael, Steven and Ivanna, so sad to hear of your fathers passing. I will always remember him as a kind and thoughtful person, always interested in meaningful and shared conversation. He was proud of all of you and you were blessed with his ever loving and gentle spirit. Find comfort in the many cherished memories that he has left you and know that he now rests in the arms of his Maker.
