Blair C. Smith
Murray was a true man to his word. He was loved by all in his community and abroad. I especially remember Murray through my old best friend being his youngest boy. Murray and Jeanie were the best couple. When she passed, Murray was never the same. He missed her greatly as any husband would, but there was a deep bond between them. I would visit Murray ,as his son Troy was off working in Alberta at that time, I considered Murray and his family as my own family. Always will even if I am not as close. But will always be in spirit.
Murray, I have a beer in my hand to celebrate your life as you wouldnt want us to be sad. To celebrate the reunification of you and your wife -Jeanie. Your heart is once again complete. See you again someday! 🙂
So very sorry to hear of Murray’s passing. I have fond memories of camping with Murray as a youngster. He always made me laugh. My thoughts and prayers go out to his entire family.
