MacKenzie – Murray Ross, age 86, of Liverpool, Queens County, passed away peacefully on Monday, July 29th, 2019, in Queens Manor, Liverpool.
Born in Lockeport, Nova Scotia, Murray was a son of the late Murray and Ada (Young) MacKenzie.
Murray was employed for many years with Mersey Seafoods as Sea Captain of the Verna & Gean, which he later built as a scale model and it is presently on display at the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic, in Lunenburg. He was a jack of all trades and a master of many, there wasn’t much that Murray couldn’t build or fix. He was a former member of the Queens County Ground Search and Rescue for many years, where he enjoyed mentoring and training the younger members. Murray was a master story teller and he had a great sense of humor. He enjoyed playing darts, hunting, fishing and camping at Keji. Above all else, Murray was most passionate about his family and spending time with them. He also enjoyed spending time with his special friend, Sandra Cardinell.
