elevated n488i Murray was born and raised in Victoria Harbour, Ontario and lived most of his adult life in Toronto, Richmond Hill and Nobleton. As an Electrician, Murray worked at the CP Rail for 35 years and led many electrical projects across the Province. He was a very proud father/grandfather and loved sports and was an advid hockey player, swimmer, hunter and fisherman. Murray and Mary and their loving family enjoyed many summers at Georgian Bay and getting Ice Cream at Picnic Island. Murray was a kind man and was loved by all who had the good fortune to meet him. He had a huge heart and would give you his shirt if you needed it. He loved telling stories and spending his weekends collecting treasures. A special thank you to Lakeside Retirement Home for being such a wonderful place for Murray. He made many friends and the staff made him feel loved. Earth has lost an amazing man but his gentle soul will live forever in Heaven. His kids and grandkids now have two Guardian Angels to watch over them.
