Murray Gordon Sharpe

November 1, 1937 – January 22, 2022
We are sad to announce the passing of Murray Gordon Sharpe on Saturday, January 22, 2022.
Murray was born on November 1, 1937 in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. He grew up in Archive, Saskatchewan along with his Dad (Jack), Mom (Jean), Brother (Kenny) and twin sister (Molly).
In 1960, he joined the Canadian Air Force and served 26 years. He met Flo Irwin in 1957 and they married on June 29, 1963 in Solsgirth, Manitoba. Murray and Flo have one child, Molly Lindenbach.
During the years that he served in the Canadian Air Force, he had the opportunities to travel. He was stationed at a few bases in Canada but most notably was when he was stationed in Germany where they enjoyed visiting several countries in Europe.
In 1986, he retired from the Canadian Air Force and he and Flo set their roots in Vernon, BC. When they first moved to Vernon, Murray and Flo worked for Purolator Courier which was based out of their home and eventually into a warehouse.
Murray was very active and enjoyed volunteering for many charities and organizations over his lifetime. He was the first one to offer his time in any events.
Murray is survived by his wife (Flo), daughter and son-in-law (Molly and Greg Lindenbach), grandchildren, Ian (Megan and Mason), Sarah (Dustin) and Chad (Nicole). He is also survived by many relatives and close friends.
He was predeceased by his mother, Jean Sharpe, father, Jack Sharpe, sister, Molly Sharpe and brother, Ken Sharpe.
Murray’s family would like to thank all the staff at the Kelowna General Hospital and the Vernon Jubilee Hospital (7th Floor) for their care and compassion over the last 5 months. A graveside service will be held later in the Spring. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.
