Murray's first passion was his family and the close friends he considered family. He had a great love and compassion for animals and will be missed by his four legged companion Maggie. He lived a full, active life and loved the outdoors, including fishing, hunting, camping ATV/trail/snowmobile riding, travel, and spending long hours in his garage on building, welding and mechanical projects. A true blue friend, Murray could always be counted on to lend a helping hand.

In his earlier days, Murray worked locally at Brown's Beverages, Silvaplex, in the construction field, and as a Foreman at Canadian Motorlamp. He retired as a Municipal Operator following 24 years of service at the Town of Gravenhurst.

On Saturday, February 9th, friends are welcome to join the family at the Gravenhurst Senior's Centre for an informal (casual dress) celebration of life from 1-4 pm.
A private family interment will take place at the Gravenhurst Mickle Memorial Cemetery in the spring.

If desired, in lieu of flowers, donations to the Muskoka Animal Centre or the South Muskoka Hospital Foundation would be appreciated.
