With profound grief and sadness, we announce the passing of Morgan Paige Hill (Paige), a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend. Predeceased by his parents Edgar and Jean Hill, Paige leaves behind his loving wife Diane, daughters Kristie (Brian) and Shannon (Mark), stepsons Craig (Christine) and Jeffrey, brother Lance (Elmira), sister Jill, grandchildren Sebastian, Jillian, Jaida, Levi, Brock, Madison, Haille and Vaughan, niece Amy (Jordan), nephew Tory and great niece Holly as well as aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Paige was born on October 14, 1956 in Belleville, Ontario. He attended school in Madoc and secondary school in Ignace. As the eldest he grew up quickly as his mother spent much time in the hospital. Paige received his electrical apprenticeship January 1, 1976 and became an interprovincial journeyman electrician while working at Mattabi Mines. He also became Captain of the Mine Search and Rescue team. His electrical career took him across Canada from Ignace, Ontario to Havelock, Ontario, Lanigan, Saskatchewan, White River, Ontario, Mackenzie, BC, New Westminster, BC, Port Alberni, BC, and Nanaimo, BC working in the mining, wood products and pulp and paper industries. He achieved his Bachelor of General Studies Degree through Simon Fraser University in 2001 and hung out his own electrical shingle in 2006 in Port Alberni, BC before joining BC Safety Authority of Nanaimo, BC in 2010. He retired from his position as Regional Business Leader over Vancouver Island in 2020.

Sadly, Paige left us on January 19, 2023 after a defiant battle with cancer. He fought valiantly with all he had, for all he loved. His strength and mental fortitude inspired friends and loved ones who will forever cherish his memories.

The legacy of Paige will be one of love, generosity, teaching, mentoring and coaching. He was a consummate host, loved entertaining, sharing his music, playing drums for friends and family. He loved to cook, design and build, travel, SCUBA dive, boat and read. His quest for knowledge was limitless and throughout his life he practiced a combination of the Good Samaritan Act, the Mariners Act and the Golden Rule. He was also a student of the Masonic Lodges of Mackenzie, BC And Port Alberni, BC and really enjoyed the teachings and fellowships.

We would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to Dr. Cody Thomson, Dr. Warren Bell and the Palliative Care Staff and Team of Shuswap Lake General Hospital for the care and compassion they showed Paige during his illness. A big thank you to the management and staff of Fischer’s Funeral Home and our family and friends for their love, support and care.

  1. It is with shock and disbelief that I hear of the passing of my very good friend, co-worker and neighbour. There are no words that can express the sadness and sorrow that I feel with this unbelievable loss. My heart goes out to Diane and the families. I am so, so sorry.

  2. So sorry for your loss, I had the pleasure of working with Paige and he was such a kind genuine human. Diane, keeping you and the family in my thoughts. Paige had such an impact on so many people. I feel privileged to have known him.

  3. So sorry for your loss Hill family.
    I enjoyed all the projects that we worked on together over the years and Paige’s bigger than life personality.
    He will be fondly remembered by those that knew him
    My deepest condolences, may your fond memories comfort you all.

  4. Diane & Family – I am so sorry for your loss. Paige was so excited about the move to Blind Bay and the opportunity to lean into retirement in such a beautiful spot and I’m sorry it ended far too soon. For me, Paige started out as a colleague at the BC Safety Authority, and ended up a friend. I will always remember his confidence and warmth, his wit, and his ability to light up a room with his smile.

    I had the opportunity to co-lead many projects over the years with Paige as a fellow Regional Business Leader, attended many meetings together, and share in a few meals over the years. You could never beat him though when it came to planning the regional meetings – he always had the best ones!! You could always tell what Paige valued most in life through the stories he shared, and if you ever needed a helping hand or some insights, you could always depend on Paige. He valued family first and foremost, and his love for each of you came through in every story he shared, and over the years he built many strong lasting friendships. He was a loyal friend, and he will be missed by many, myself included. Wishing you all the best.

  5. Diane and Family. Paige and you have been in my thoughts and prayers since we last shared moments together in your home on December 16th. In his adversity, he remained inspiring and courageous. We were acquainted with each other for less than two years but, in that time, mostly on the golf course, he always brought enthusiasm and energy to his game. His obituary is beautifully done from which I can say he was an exceptional person whose life was a blessing to others. His journey through life shows determination and dedication. May all of your fond memories of him comfort you all in your time of sorrow.

  6. Diane, we are so sorry to hear about Paige. When you have a chance please contact us. Thinking of you . Love Ray & Penny. We are in Kamloops BC

  7. I still have trouble believing that Paige has passed. He was a larger than life person who brought integrity, compassion, kindness and fun to our workplace. Although Paige was my boss for six years, I knew him for many years as my customer. I grew to view him as my mentor and my friend. I will hold great memories of the times we had and of the person Paige was. My heart goes out to Diane and their family. There is so much more that could be said, and everyone who was fortunate enough to know Paige will be adding their own experiences of the beautiful human he was. Thank you Paige. You will be fondly remembered and greatly missed.

  8. We were very shocked and sad when we heard of Paige’s passing.
    We send our condolences to all of Paige’s family- To wife Diane, to daughters Christie, Shannon and their families, to brother Lance and his family and to sister Jill.
    Paige lives for ever in our hearts.
