EDWARD H. MURRAY
February 1st, 1931 – September 20th, 2006
A loving, kind husband, life companion and partner for 40 years of marriage to his wife Marguerite (My Margie).
Ed loved nature and all it’s beauty, the wilderness and the great outdoors. He was a trapper, lumber jack, cattle rancher, security guard, an artist and author. For many years Ed played and loved the game of horseshoes and was always happy to be able to throw a ringer or better yet,
a “double”. He organized clubs in Saskatchewan and B.C., ran many tournaments and also served with the
Provincials and Canadian Horseshoe Associations and for years a member of the Vernon Club. As a sports writer, Ed published 11 Canadian Horseshoe Year Books and designed many lapel pins for both Horseshoe Canada and the Vernon Collectors Club. After retiring he published two books on the life of an old mountain man prospector and a wanderer in the wilderness. Since 1987 Ed was a member of the Vernon Collectors Club and he enjoyed the good fellowship of other collectors and the many events with the club. He liked collecting things of interest. Ed loved life and lived it the way he wanted and was fortunate to always have good health except for the last year, when his health failed. In respecting Ed’s wishes, he was cremated and there will be no Funeral Service held. As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so may send donations in memory of Ed to the Kidney Foundation Of Canada, #302-1600-6th Avenue West, Vancouver, B.C. V6J 1R3.
Cremation arrangements were made with
BETHEL FUNERAL CHAPEL LTD., 5605-27th Street, Vernon, B.C. V1T 8Z5. (1-250-542-1187)
