Dearest Marie, my heartfelt sorrow for the loss of your husband. I never had the opportunity to meet him in person, but through the years we worked together, you always knew he was an amazing husband and Dad when you spoke of him. So sad he had to leave this world unexpectedly and so young. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your boys.

I first met Murray about 30 years ago when I started at the (what was then) Whitby Jail. He was imposing, at first…but kind. Back then when you were new, nobody really spoke to you, but Murray did. We had a shared love of hunting and swapped stories and because of him, I was accepted fairly quickly by the others.

I remember Murray being very involved in organizing staff social events, for example the Father/Son fishing day at the camp. To me, he liked working at the Jail and he liked the people. I recall seeing him get a tad angry at times, but I never saw him in a bad mood. I heard some of the best stories about Murray from things that happened before my time; none of which shall be mentioned here. The stories were epic….

My favourite memory of Murray was when I mistakenly called him “Mr. Thomas”, he nearly hit the roof! Those who worked at the Jail will know what I mean and will laugh too, if they read this.

The last time I saw Murray was when I stopped at Fishtail Lake camp for a visit a few years ago and gosh, did we walk down memory lane over a few. He loved that camp.

It’s sad to see one of the good guys go; but such is life.

My heartfelt condolences to his family and those that loved him.
