MURRAY, Donald Ashton Murray - Died peacefully at home on Sunday, February 28, 2021, at the age of 90, with family by his side.
He was predeceased by Jean, his wife of 63 years, who was the love of his life.
He is survived by his children: Alison (Rod), Ian (Linda), Angus (Sarah) and Laura; his seven grandchildren: Adam, Graham, Megan, Garth, Jake, Tess, and Hugh; and his brother, Alex (Laura.)
Don was born in London, Ontario, and grew up in Hamilton.
An opportunity with Corning Canada took the family to Gravenhurst and then to Toronto, settling in the Beaches neighbourhood.
A decades long association began with Kew Beach United Church (Beach United) where Don sang in the choir for 50 years.
The family extends our sincere gratitude and thanks to the staff at the St. Clair O'Connor Community, and to Rose and Lourdes for care and support.
A virtual celebration is planned for the coming weeks. Details will be posted here: https://beachunitedchurch.com/
Cremation has occurred and his ashes will be buried in the Baysville Cemetery with Jean.
