Cpl William L. "Bill" Murray (Ret'd)
We regret to advise of the death of Corporal WIlliam L. "Bill" Murray (Ret'd) in Chilliwack General Hospital on 22 October 2007 at the age of 74 years.
Bill was born in Brockville, ON and joined The Royal Canadian Engineers in 1957. He earned his wings as a paratrooper and celebrated his 70th birthday with one last jump. In 1973, Bill began a second career as a Land Agent and Right of Way Negotiator, successfully attaining his Senior Designation with the International Right of Way Association.
Bill was an enthusiastic volunteer for several community organisations including; the Crafty Raft Races, The Cancer Society's Fresh Start Program and The Read To Me Program. He had a special rapport with children and could not pass one in the mall or grocery store without coaxing a smile or laugh from them. A lover of all sports, music, dance and theatre. Bill's favourite pastime was socialising and swapping stories with his "old buds". He was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion in Vedder Crossing.
A memorial service will be held on 29 October at 1:00 PM at the Vedder Legion, Branch #280. [zsd, zpp]
