MURRAY, George L. – Fredericton, NB

The family of George Lynn Murray are saddened to announce his peaceful passing at Hospice House Fredericton surrounded by his family on Tuesday, October 29, 2019 at the age of 71. George was born in Plaster Rock on September 19, 1948 the son of the late Simon and Helen (Smith) Murray.

After graduating from Tobique Valley Regional High School and attending the New Brunswick Institute of Technology (Accounting) George worked in Sales for most of his career with Coca-Cola Bottling in Fredericton. George was an avid participant and fan of many sports including hockey, baseball, basketball and golf. George loved working on his property in Lower St. Mary’s and was a great handyman, a talent which he inherited from his father and the Murray clan of wonderful carpenters. He was a great friend to many, loved his family and was loved in turn by them and he was proud of his boys and their accomplishments.
