With heavy hearts we sadly announce the passing of Norman Murray of Moncton. Surrounded by his loving family, he passed away peacefully at The Veteran’s Health Center on Saturday, April 13, 2024. Born in Dieppe, he was the son of the late Moses and Aline (Caissie) Murray.

Norman served in the Royal Canadian Air Force as a member of the Peace Corps in Germany from 1951 to 1954. Subsequently, he operated several businesses over the years, with his most recent business being Murray’s Used Cars on Mountain Road, which he helped operate with his son Pat. With over 50 years as a car salesman, he was well-respected, well-known and always took great care of his customers. He was an avid sports fan having excelled at a variety of sports in his younger years including baseball, soccer, hockey and English rugby. While serving in the Peace Corps, he was selected as captain of the baseball team. Later in life he got so much joy out of watching his grandchildren play sports. He was a true fan of the Toronto Blue Jays and the Toronto Raptors and followed them loyally. He really enjoyed a good game of cards with family and friends, but especially with his son Pat. Rummy, 200 and crib being his games of choice especially when there were a few dollars on the line. He loved fishing, watching horse races and spending time at the cottage. His most treasured moments were those spent with his family, that’s when he was the happiest.

Norman was kind, soft-hearted and well liked by all who met him. Forever being a jokester, he never had a bad word to say about anyone and treated everyone the same; with respect and honesty. His friendly, easy-going personality and great sense of humor made a positive initial impression to all who met him, often forming long and enduring friendships.

He will forever be in the heart of his loving wife of 68 years, Joan (Wilson), children; Michael (Gisele), David (Yvette), Patrick (Pauline) and Anne Brewster (Sheldon), grandchildren; Erin, Dale, Melissa, Chris, Marco and Carolynn, great grandchildren; Gavin, Quinn, Sofia and Jack, brother; Paul (Rita), and several nieces and nephews. Aside from his parents he was predeceased by a sister, Marie Demers.

A life so beautifully lived deserves to be beautifully remembered. The Royal Canadian Legion Moncton Branch #6 will hold a memorial service on Thursday, April 18, 2024 at 11 AM, immediately followed by a service celebrating his life at Cobb’s Funeral Home and Cremation Center, 330 Whitepine Rd, Riverview (869-2007) with Father Phil Mulligan presiding. A reception to meet the family will follow the service. Donations to the Dr. Sheldon Rubin Oncology Department at The Moncton Hospital or local charity of choice if desired.
