Obituary for Maurice Vernon Woodworth

January 13, 1958 – July 3, 2020

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Maurice ‘Moe’ Woodworth. Maurice passed away peacefully at Vancouver General Hospital on the evening of July 3, 2020.

Born in Halifax on January 13, 1958, to Vernon and Minnie Woodworth of Kentville, who predeceased him, Maurice is survived by and will always be lovingly remembered by his wife and partner of 36-plus years Lynn Weir, his sister Daisy (Eustace) Haynes, children (from his prior marriage) Christopher (Caroline) Adshade and Candace Adshade, along with grandchildren Wesley (3 yo.) and Maude (1 yo.).

Maurice closed his eyes one more time on July 3, 2020, and maybe took one last photograph, as he departed the land that he loved. Maurice moved to Vancouver, BC in 1996 in a big yellow moving truck, sharing the cab with Lynn and their cats Meisha and Sasha. Together they made Vancouver their home, where Maurice spent over 21 years as a working member of IATSE Local 891 in the Set Dec Dept. He was an avid photographer for most of his life and became well-known for his stunning images. Maurice was also the proud owner of Maurice Woodworth Photography. His other greatest passion was for riding his Kawasaki Vulcan with his many friends and has been a member of the Canadian Motorcycle Cruisers for the past 8 years.

Maurice lived a full and exceptional life, loved, respected, and admired by all who knew him. A celebration of Maurice’s life will be held in Vancouver at a future date, when restrictions on large gatherings have been lifted.
