He leaves to mourn his wife of 58 years, Jean (née Geddes); and sons, Mark (Sheri) of Olds, Alberta, and Jeff (Jackie) of Georgetown, Ontario.

He will be missed by his many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Predeceased by his parents, Willard and Frances (née Brown) Johnson; brother, Donald; and sister, Anne. Murray farmed most of his life on the Northline in Kincardine Township. He ran a dairy operation for 20 years and later raised registered Texas Longhorn cattle. He was always available to lend a helping hand and liked nothing better than sitting down and reminiscing.
