Murray was born in Broadview, Sask. on Feb. 4, 1933. Growing up in Broadview, trains were a big part of his childhood. As a young man he worked in the railyard in Broadview and then became a CPR Policeman in Calgary, after a brief time in Edmonton as a city policeman. He worked for the Alberta Liquor Control Board as an inspector in Calgary but rural life was calling, so he moved to an acreage and started a job with the Government of Alberta liquor store in Okotoks. During that time, along with Bernice, they started Deb-Lin Jersey Dairy Farm. Retirement brought him back to Broadview.
He is survived by his loving wife of 67 years, Bernice; his daughter, Linda (Randy), and granddaughter, Alison (Ben) and great-grandchildren, Max and Cooper; grandson Jeff (Britany); son-in-law Stan and grandchildren, Jason,
Murray and Krista; and sister, Muriel Campbell. He was predeceased by his daughter Deb, mother Bertha, brother Ken and sister Eileen.
