Loved Super Bowl Sunday’s with Murray. He was “the bookie”, handling our big 25 cent bets. Lots of laughter, lucky to have known Murray.

So sorry to hear this news. Murray moved into Mt Hope in the early 70’s with his family, I had the extreme pleasure of babysitting both of his kids, Jennifer and Ryan and being their neighbour. It has been a bond that has never been broken, they are family. Had the joy in sharing his 75th birthday with family and friends. He was a teddy bear of a man. He will be missed. Love to the family.
