MacKenzie – Murray Ross, age 86, of Liverpool, Queens County, passed away peacefully on Monday, July 29th, 2019, in Queens Manor, Liverpool.

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.

He is survived by his children, Murray “Clair” (Glenda), of Bridgewater, Hester (Donald) Croft, of Greenfield, Verna (David) Wagner, of Brooklyn, Melvin (Stephanie), of Port Medway, Irvin (Kim), of Brooklyn; grandchildren, Steven, Lisa, Tia, Dana, Heidi, Christopher, Mandy, Erin, Adam, Daniel, Alexander, Kaylee and Kelsey; great grandchildren, Declan, Jack, Lucas, Aria, Charleigh, Peyton, Harrison, Rosie, Jaxon and Finnley; sisters LouEva, of Milton, Alice Enslow, of New Minas, June Wamback, and Lynn Scott, both of East Jordan; brothers, Richard (Sheila), of Shelburne, Alfred, of Clyde River, Perley (Faye) of East Green Harbour and Kenney (Lisa) of East Jordan.

Clair, Hester, Verna, Mel, Irvin and families. Our thoughts are with you during this sad time. I will remember Uncle Murray with that cheeky chuckle and glint in his eye (not to mention how much he looked liked granddad). He was indeed a story teller (a family trait) relating his hunting trips and his fishing career. He was so proud to show off his artistic side with his decoys and the model of the Verna & Gean. His eye for detail was amazing. You will have many memories of your Dad, ” a good man”. Love to all. Linda and George
