Sep 19, 2018
Morley Workun M.A.A.A., FRAIC, 80, passed away suddenly September 13, 2018. He leaves his beloved wife of 57 years, Patricia and his sister Joyce; his four children Denise (Gord), Michelle (Doug), Lisa (Stuart), Ken (Carol); and his 12 grandchildren Michael (Kayla), Alex (Gina), Alyssa, Ainsley, Mackenzie, Michelle, Shane, Jessica, Maddie, Sarah, Jasmine, Nick and his great-grandson Casey. Morley was predeceased by his parents, his sister Maxine and brother Andrew. Morley attended high school in Wetaskiwin where he met his lifelong love, Patricia Draayer. He graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelor of Architecture. Morley was a leader within Alberta’s architectural community for 42 years with the same firm. A senior partner with Workun Garrick Architects & Associates Inc., his reputation for designing quality educational facilities with pleasant learning environments will be a large part of his legacy. He will be remembered as a man of loyalty, integrity and fairness. Morley was elected a Fellow of the Royal Architecture Institute of Canada. He was an honored and elected lifetime member of the Alberta Association of Architects. He was active in the community: a Rotarian, President of Edmonton Opera, President of the Opera Companies of Canada and honored his Ukrainian roots through volunteerism. Morley’s greatest achievement was his unwavering love and dedication to his family and close friends. He and Pat travelled the world together, and music fed their souls. Morley will live on through his loved ones who survive him. The family encourages those who wish to pay their respects to join them in memory and celebration at the Mayfair Golf Course on Tuesday, September 18 from 1:30-4:00. Donations in his memory can be made to either to The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra or The Edmonton Opera.

Nov 22, 2013
Dave is riding off into the sunset. Well not just yet. Dave will be continuing on with the Firm over the next couple years making sure all his current projects continue to receive the attention and service he is noted for, before officially joining some pro golf tour.
Dave joined the firm in 1984, and has been a principal since 1997. In the 34 years since acquiring his diploma as an architectural technologist, Dave has been involved in all aspects of architectural practice; including design, project management, construction documentation, specification writing, tender services, contract administration and building investigation work.
Dave has successfully overseen projects ranging in size from $25K to $42M for a multitude of clients, primarily in the K-12 and post-secondary education markets. His hands-on, common sense approach to providing design services involves listening carefully to what his clients are telling him; providing the best possible advice and design solutions based on their goals and constraints; and delivering projects that balance these interests.
