Dr. Morley Sherman Lipsett March 18 1936 – October 22, 2014

Morley Lipsett, scientist, educator, entrepreneur, passed away on Oct. 22, 2014 after a prolonged battle with cancer. Morley’s accomplishments included: working on the Hubble telescope, influencing Industry Canada’s early research and development policies, bringing the SR&ED program to Western Canada, and supported his wife and daughter in the establishment of the Crystalworks Gallery. A man for all seasons, he was instrumental in bringing the EST movement to Canada, and promoting the linguistic/ontology work of Flores and Maturana. As a result of his many achievements, Morley was accepted into the prestigious World Academy of Art and Science; however, his greatest achievement was his family, whom he loved dearly. He will be greatly missed by all the people he touched, including his wife, Susan; their children, Jordan (Sarah), Karen (Finn Kidd), and Andrea; and grandchildren (Jesse, Bodhin, Mikayla, Julia and Oliver.).

    Such a joyful man. His warmth and good humour were matched by his keen intellect. It was a privilege to spend time in his company as he was almost always working on something important. Unforgettable.

    Your family came up in my thoughts today as I work on a retrospective for my brother’s daughters. I am stunned and dismayed to find Morley gone and the opportunity to reconnect is gone with him. He gave me so much, as did your family, which I needed. His care and concern for his community and his family live on.
