Colin Dale Murray Murray

MURRAY, Colin Dale Murray - 1947- 2011. It is with profound sadness that the family of Colin Dale Murray announces his passing at age 64. Surrounded by his family on August 19, 2011 at the L&A County General Hospital, Colin's last train left the station. He leaves his loving wife Janine (nee Bushell), son Andrew Logan of Kingston, daughter Ashleigh Anne (Dan) of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, their sons Brennick and Trenton; brothers Doug, and Bill (Dale); brother-in-law Kerry (Elaine), plus nieces, nephews, one great niece and four great nephews. A retired chemistry, math and science teacher, Colin spent his entire teaching career at Napanee District Secondary School, retiring in 2002. He was a passionate and skilled model railroader whose layout was featured in The Canadian Railway Modeller. Colin grew up in Rainy River, ON, the son of CN conductor Charles Ralph Murray and his wife, Bertha Murray, whose father, William David Douglas, was a locomotive engineer. Colin's beloved grandsons will miss running trains with their much-loved grandad. A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, August 27, 2011 at Trinity United Church in Napanee. Visitation will be at 10:00 AM; the service will be at 11:00. Those wishing to make donations in Colin's memory may do so that morning by cheque to the L&A CG Hospital or the Cancer Clinic at Kingston General Hospital. 10499842

Life is eternal, and love is immortal,

and death is only a horizon;

and a horizon is nothing

save the limit of our sight.

~ Rossiter Worthington Raymond

Belovèd Colin, you have left us all a wonderful legacy of living life fully, and facing death gracefully ...

Requiescat in pace
