He spent his final days at home on Salt Spring Island surrounded by loving family and looking out at his beloved ocean and garden view. Murray was born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan and moved with his family to Vancouver in the mid thirties. He graduated from North Vancouver High School in 1943 and from UBC as an electrical engineer in 1948. He began working at Wismer and Rawlings Electric in 1956. He became president of that company in 1973 and continued in that role until his retirement in 1993. Murray was predeceased by his first wife, Anna, and his daughter Elizabeth. He is survived by his second wife, Laurel Gordon, and children Christopher Sumpton (Beverly Dywan), Sue Ann Burns (Cameron), Erika Harrison, Kevin Harrison (Alexandra Hounsell) and six grandchildren, Bryn, Christina, Graham, Riel, Samuel and Avery. Celebration of his life will be held at St. Andrews United Church in North Vancouver on June 8, 2013 at 3 p.m. with reception following.
