William "Bill" Thompson Murray

1926-2017

William "Bill" Thompson Murray
The passing of William "Bill" Thompson Murray, husband of the late Marion L. (McCumber) Murray of Caithness NB occurred on December 14, 2017 at the Charlotte County Hospital, St. Stephen NB.

Born in Caithness NB on December 9, 1926, he was a son of the late Samuel and Kathleen (Barry) Murray. A loving father, grandfather, great-grandfather and brother, Bill is survived by his children: Mary (Frank) Clark of Caithness NB, Allen (Frannie) Murray of St. George NB, Douglas (Connie) Murray of Caithness NB and Elizabeth (Don) Townsend of Rothesay NB; grandchildren: Jan (Darren) Tarr, Leanne (Joe) Furlong, Alyson Murray (Gordon), Matthew (Jenna) Murray and Daniel Townsend; five great-grandchildren: Allie, Brielle, Ava, Cruz and Jax; siblings: Edna Kinney of Canal NB and Orlo Murray of Caithness NB; and several nieces, nephews and cousins. In addition to his parents and wife, Bill was predeceased by his siblings: Clifford Murray, Manford Murray and Bertha Frye.

Prior to retirement Bill was employed as a truck driver and he loved his job dearly. An avid outdoorsman, he enjoyed staying active outside with his wife Marion by his side. In his younger years he could often be found playing baseball and as he got older he loved a good game of horseshoes. Bill was a true family man and loved to be in the company of his family, especially the grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He will be forever missed but fondly remembered for his love and dedication to his wife and family.

The family would like to thank the 2nd Floor Staff at the Charlotte County Hospital for all their care and compassion shown to their dad in these last few weeks. Your thoughtfulness will always be remembered with deep gratitude.

Arrangements in the care of the St. George Funeral Home (755-3533) 26 Portage Street, St. George NB. As keeping with Bill's wishes there will be no visiting. A Funeral Service will be held from the St. George Funeral Home Chapel on Sunday at 2:00 pm with Rev. Mary Ann Langmaid officiating, followed by the interment in the St. George Rural Cemetery. In Bill's memory, donations to a charity of the donor's choice would be appreciated by the family.
