Morley was born to Oliver & Ella Rolfe on April 11, 1931 on the family farm at Treesbank, MB. Morley moved with his family to Stockton when he was 5 years old, where he attended school & worked on the family farm. In 1956 he married Una Outhwaite, the love of his life. They moved to Brandon where he was employed at Canadian Steel Tank for 28 years.
In 1974, Morley and Una purchased their dream property a few miles South of Brandon where they had the enjoyment of farming until Morley's retirement. Morley was a jack of all trades and a great carpenter. There wasn't a job that he wouldn't tackle. Over the years he built several houses and was always there to lend a hand for family and friends.
He was a devoted family man and loved his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren immensely.

Morley is survived by his loving wife Una of 60 years. Children: Larry Rolfe (Donna Fischer), Karen Warren (Dave Pope) & Wendy Sahasrabuddhe (Rahul). Grandchildren: Derek Warren (Lisa), Justin Warren (Kara Elder), Kaleigh Andrews (Jason), Travis Rolfe, Alexandra and Kiara Sahasrabuddhe.
Great Grandchildren: Jack, Cole, Ben Warren and Emersyn Andrews. Morley is also survived by his brother, Jack Rolfe (Kay) of Glenboro, sister Margaret Outhwaite of Stockton as well as numerous extended relatives. Morley was predeceased by infant daughter, Lois Diane, his parents Oliver & Ella (nee Naismith), sisters Annie Smart and Violet Ross and his twin brother Jim Rolfe.

A short service will be held at the Glenboro Cemetery on Thursday, December 29, 2016 at 10:30 a.m. followed by a celebration of Morley's life at Trinity United Church, 1515-6th St. from 2:00- 3:30 pm. Everyone is welcome.
