It is with heavy hearts we announce that D. Murdoch Robertson passed away peacefully on Sunday August 21st, 2022 at Georgetown Hospital in his 89th year.
He is now united with His Saviour as well as his daughter and granddaughter.
Beloved husband of Eleanor for nearly 61 years (Sept 2).

Loving brother-in law to Peggy (late John) Robertson of Peterborough. Growing up in Ottawa, Murdoch’s first love was baseball until he met Eleanor in 1957. He earned his BSc (Eng) from Queen’s University ’61.
His engineering career spanned over 3 decades with both the Ministry of Highways (now MTO) and the City of Oshawa where he retired as Commissioner of Public Works in 1995.
