It is with greatest sorrow that we share the news that Brian Morel died on Thursday, January 13. I do not yet have any details and will be sending more information as I receive it.
He was such a loyal friend, generous to a fault, intellectually curious, blessed with a deep spirituality, and an integral part of Wednesday Night for so many years. We will miss him greatly, but take consolation in the pleasure he will take in rejoining such Wednesday Nighters as Kimon and Desmond Morton for debates echoing those he so greatly enjoyed at the McGill Faculty Club.
Meantime, we came across this wonderful clip of Brian’s pitch for Infinitheatre for whom he volunteered in many capacities over the years.
Infinithéâtre’s Brian Morel Invites YOU!

Brian Morel
22 juin 1941 – 13 janvier 2022
C’est avec une grande tristesse que nous annonçons le décès de Brian Morel, retraité de l’Université McGill, survenu le 13 janvier 2022 à l’âge de 80 ans.
Il laisse dans le deuil son épouse Pierrette Boisvert, ses filles Geneviève (Éric Villeneuve) et Valérie (Rémy Costard), ses petits-fils Antoine et Jules ainsi que ses frères Richard (Yolande Trudel), Bruce et Philip, ses belles-sœurs Aline Boisvert et Marie-Reine Laliberté, ses beaux-frères Clément Boisvert et René Simoneau, plusieurs neveux et nièces ainsi que de nombreux amis.
Brian avait toujours un regard bienveillant envers les gens et était un passionné de multi médias, de photographie et de culture.
En raison des circonstances exceptionnelles, une cérémonie sur invitation seulement aura lieu le vendredi 4 février 2022 au salon funéraire Collins Clarke MacGillivray White, situé au 307, Riverside, Saint-Lambert. L’inhumation aura lieu à une date ultérieure.
Vos témoignages de sympathie peuvent se traduire par un don à la Fondation du CHUM, institution à laquelle il était reconnaissant de lui avoir permis de retrouver une qualité de vie qu’il appréciait tellement.

    I do not have any details and will be sending more information as I receive it, but thought you would want to know.
    He was such a great friend, generous to a fault, and an integral part of Wednesday Night for so many years.
    I will miss him greatly, but take consolation in the image of him and David bedeviling St. Peter for more cameras and more wire connections – or maybe they won’t need them now that they reside in The Cloud.
    I know you share my sorrow at the loss of this very dear friend.

    I am certain he and dad are tinkering.
    May he Rest In Peace.
