Murray had enjoyed having horses on the farm and had been especially attached to the farm dog, Cindy. He was a very hard worker and a man with integrity and valued honesty. His family always came first. In retirement, he enjoyed many years camping with family and friends, being in the yard, having coffee with the gang and going to the Blue Diamond. He also enjoyed watching curling, baseball and hockey.
