I first met Murray in 1978 while working at Stenpro and he was working for Maritime Tel & Tel, then in 1986 Walter & I moved into the community of Hunts Point and Murray would stop by for visits. One year for Christmas he gave Walter & I a goose. Please know that Murray was a wonderful thoughtful friend to me when Walter passed away, he would stop by my work just for a chat to see how I was doing. Keep your memories of a wonderful husband, and father close in your hearts. Murray will be missed, our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time. God Bless.
RIP MY FRIEND MURRAY.

To Bev and Family…Our deepest sympathy…I will long fondly remember Murray for the leadership he showed as president of LBC, a job he did with patience, humour and kindness.
Years removed from that time, we would meet on the street and share fine conversations on the ‘state of things’. It always seemed to me that he had a twinkle in his eye.

I rememeber that phase well. A wisdom he liked to share.
He was a good person and gave back to our community. He led a productive, full life.
You are in our thoughts and prayers.

We wish that we could be with you tomorrow. Your family has always supported the Armstrongs in our difficult times and we now mourn with you in Murray’s passing. He fought a long and courageous battle and is now at peace. Our new granddaughter is expected any day and we have promised to be available to look after the “big sister ” when they have to go to the hospital so are reluctant to be away for any length of time. However, we will be there in spirit and you are in our thoughts and prayers as you mourn Murray’s passing and celebrate his life, a life well lived. We are making a donation To the Cancer Society in his memory.
John & Elizabeth
Deeply saddened by your personal loss; Murray will be missed by all who knew him. May the comfort of family and friends add peace to the days ahead.
Very kindest personal regards, Ollie
I was so sorry to hear the news of your father. We are constantly losing friends and family but to lose a parent is quite different. He, along with your mom, was the one responsible for giving you life and nurturing and suporting you as you grew. An important part of YOUR life is now gone and that is very sad. Your dad was a godly man and now he is with his God. Rest in peace, Murray.
