Leaving to mourn with fond and loving memories are his wife Hollie; children Liam, Teagan, and Madison; parents Donna and Stead Smith; brother Stefan (Susan) Smith; sister Kayla (Alex) Cabot; as well as a large circle of family and friends. Murray was predeceased by his grandparents Fay and Benjamin Smith, Elizabeth and Wilfred Pye; uncles Jordan, Howard & Lewis; aunt Millicent; cousin Cleon Smith.
Murray was a devoted father, husband and friend. He truly enjoyed hunting and fishing and was a huge sports enthusiast. Murray graduated university with a degree in engineering, followed by a successful career with the provincial government. While Murray loved life and his big circle of friends, his whole life was focused around Hollie and the kids.
