Murray played in the Northern Football Conference and the Ontario Senior Football League for many years and was inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame with his Mississauga Raiders teammates. He will be deeply missed by his football brotherhood. When his football career ended, Slo-Pitch became his passion and he played in many Ontario Provincial championships.Murray was blessed to have the talented medical team of Thoracic surgeons, and the loving and special doctors and nurses of the ICU/CCU Unit at Brampton Civic Hospital managing his care. His family, and most especially his wife Dawn, are eternally grateful for their support and dedication.
A ceremony to honour Murray’s life will be held at St. John’s Dixie, 737 Dundas Street East @ Cawthra in Mississauga on Tuesday July 30th. Visitation from 11:00am – 12:30pm with a service to follow.
