McLENNAN, Murray Elvin - (August 20, 1930 - September 12, 2017)
After a long and full life, Murray, beloved husband of 47 years of Ann (Harper) passed away peacefully at Lakeridge Health Oshawa.
Murray’s dedication to his family was limitless. He was the treasured and much loved "Pop" of Luke and Drew McLennan and Griffin Hole, and very proud father of Dr. Scott McLennan (wife Cheri, née Richards) Bowmanville and Kimberly McLennan (husband Gavin Hole) Scarborough.
Murray was predeceased by his parents Elvin and Louise (Puckrin) McLennan, his sisters Donna, June and Betty, infant grandson Charlie Hole, and very recently, his brother-in-law Dave Harper. He will be fondly remembered by his sister-in-law Catherine Harper and his many nieces and nephews.
Murray’s warmth, kindness and sense of humour will be greatly missed. Growing up in Gananoque, Ontario, Murray loved telling stories of his adventures on the river, between working on the 1000 Island Tour Boats to pleasure boating with friends, his love of the St. Lawrence never waned.
Murray moved to Oshawa to work for McCallum Transport, and later relocated to Toronto after being recruited by Bell Canada as a driver trainer and transport operator. He eventually returned to Oshawa with Ann and worked as an auto hauler for Citicar, and MCL until retirement.
In keeping with Murray's wishes, a private family service will held at a later date. Interment will be at the Gananoque Cemetery. Arrangements entrusted with OSHAWA FUNERAL HOME, 847 King Street West (905-721-1234).
The family would like to thank Dr. Kevin Graham for his compassionate care and Dr. Eli Sagi for his ongoing support.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to The Hospital for Sick Kids NICU or to the CHARITY of your choice.
