It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Lyle Harvey Murray of Thedford, on Sunday, May 23, 2021, after a short but courageous battle with Pancreatic Cancer at the age of 81.
Lyle will be dearly missed by his wife of 45 years Margaret Murray (nee Oudekerk) of Strathroy, and his children Anne Marie (Randy) Foster of B.C., Doreen Murray of Sarnia, Krista (Dave) Perkins of Sarnia, Sherri Murray of Port Franks, Shelley Murray of London and Rebecca Murray of Alberta. He is survived by 11 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews, and their dog PeeWee. Predeceased by his parents Innis and Verna Murray of Kincardine.
Lyle retired from Canadian Tire in 2014 as a Department Manager and served in the Canadian Navy for 9 years. He was an active board member of the Huron Shores Optimist Club and Port Franks Seniors Club. Lyle lived at Oakridge Park in Thedford and had many wonderful friends.
He attended the Pinery Baptist Church and traveled with The Chapelaires for many years. He will be remembered for his kindness and his sense of humor that he still had right to the end.
Expressions of sympathy can be made as donations to the Canadian Cancer Society. Cremation has taken place and a memorial service will be held at a later date.
Arrangements are entrusted to Gilpin Funeral Chapel, 123 King Street East in Forest, 519-786-4964. Please leave a memory or condolence online at www.GilpinFuneralChapel.com
