Joseph BachTo Murray's family: The news of his passing was quite a shock. He will be remembered as a co-worker and as a friend. I am terribly sorry for the loss in your lives with his passing. To Murray: I am so going to miss our conversations at work. You helped to keep me on my toes.
Tristan PawluchMy deepest condolences to Murray's family. I had the pleasure of knowing Murray for a brief moment in time, but it was enough to know how much of a gentle and kind man he was. I am shocked and saddened by his passing and can only convey how truly genuine of a person he was. I know he will be sorely missed by all that knew him.
Justine MuirMurray - I'm so glad we got to work together so closely over the past year. I'll always think fondly of our conversations in the kitchen and when I'm making my lunch, I'll say to myself "What have you got today, Murray?" as I always asked you. Condolences to all who knew Murray, near and far. He will be sorely missed.
Alicia JarvisSending my deepest condolences to Murrays family. I was a former co-worker of Murray’s and always enjoyed my time working with him. This news is shocking and heartbreaking for so many. Murray always had a smile on his face and brought joy to the day-to-day work life. Murray your kindness and humor will be missed by all.
Steven O'ReillyMy condolences to Murray's family and friends. I am sorry for your loss of such a genuine and friendly man. I worked closely with him over the last few years, and our team is just not the same without him. He was always interested in hearing about what was going on in my life and others, and also happy to share stories from his own adventures. He will be missed.
Ian McDonaldI met Murray in 2001 when I started working at Axa Insurance. We were on the same team. We started golfing together each Saturday along with a 3rd friend, Bruce Moore from Axa. Within less than a year rMurray and I were no longer working for Axa, and our careers took us in different directions, but we continued to golf together every Saturday through the season, right up to the day before his passing. In later years we were introduced to Ernie Briginshaw who played regularly with us up until a few years ago when Ernie and his wife retired and re-settled in British Columbia. Murray was a gentle soul and a great golf partner. He was very skilled at the game, a natural swing, great iron player. But he also had a very good temperament for the game. I often joked that I had heard Murray curse twice in the 17 years we played together. I also had to be Murray's designated shouter on the course. The odd time he would hit an errant shot I would have to yell FORE for him because he was reluctant to shout. This was just a part of his mild and gentle nature. I will miss our golf games but more I will miss our friendship and many conversations about golf, baseball, our work, our families, anything and everything over the years. My deepest sympathies to Murray's family on this unexpected loss at such an early age.
