STILLWELL, Murray Edmund, age 93, passed away at St. Paul’s Hospital Friday, December 21st, 2018. Murray was born September 22, 1925 in Conquest, SK. He grew up in many rural towns. He graduated with a Bachelor of Engineering degree from the University of Saskatchewan in 1948. In 1949, he began his career with PFRA in Swift Current, where he retired as the District Engineer in 1980. His many professional accomplishments included designing and developing irrigation systems throughout southern Saskatchewan, overseeing bridge construction, designing and providing water services to communities, and preventing major flooding. He married Joyce in 1951 and they enjoyed an active life together in Swift Current. Murray watched and played many sports and played semi-professional ball. He coached his boys, hunted, fished, played cards, gardened, was a lifetime member of the Swift Current Curling Club, and travelled extensively with his wife and family. Murray will be remembered by Joyce, his wife of 67 years, their three children and their families; daughter Myra (Jim) Comrie and their son Kelten (Meaghan); son Ron Stillwell (Donna Obleman) and their children Sarah and Zach; and son Robert Stillwell (Zury Cortes) and their son Liam. He was predeceased by his parents James and Mabel Stillwell and his two brothers, Ben and Mark Stillwell. Murray will also be remembered by his sister Emily Stillwell and nieces and nephews. Murray and Joyce moved to Saskatoon in 2007 where they most recently resided at Primrose Chateau. Murray’s family would like to give our sincerest thanks to Golden Home Wellness private care and the doctors, nurses and support staff at St. Paul’s Hospital on the 5th floor. There will be a private family service at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in Murray’s name can be made to a charity of your choice.
