On July 19, 2023, we learned Maurice Fellis passed away peacefully at the North Shore Hospice earlier that morning after a courageous battle with cancer. Maurice held several executive positions at Westward Shipping Ltd. from 1956 until 1994 when he retired as Chairman. He was a staunch supporter of the shipping industry and chaired the boards of the Chamber of Shipping, Pacific Pilotage Authority, BC Maritime Employers Association and Vancouver Merchants’ Exchange.  He was a recipient of the Award of Excellence from the National Transportation BC Division.   A celebration of life will take place at a date yet to be determined. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donating to the Lions Gate Hospital Foundation, BC Cancer Foundation, Mission to Seafarers or the charity of your choice. Our condolences to Marc and family.
