On February 8th, 2021, after a courageous battle with cancer, John, aged 74, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his loved ones.
He was born in Clarendon, Jamaica to parents Evelyn and John Murray (both deceased). Although a true Jamaican through and through, John moved to Canada in the 70's to pursue his career.
It was here in Canada that he met his beloved wife Sharon, who had recently arrived from Australia. They were together for over 50 years. He is also survived by his two beautiful daughters, Nicole, and her husband Anthony Lee and their children Nyla and Greyson and Krysta, and her fiance Aaron Coleman. John will also be dearly missed by his sister Yvonne Rennicks and his extended family.
John will be remembered for so many things, including his charismatic personality, his love of travel and gardening, his huge laugh; but mostly, for his love and devotion to his family. John was the ultimate family man, every decision and choice he made in life, was centered around the wellbeing of his family.
John will be sorely missed by all who had the honour to know him. Although he might be gone he will never be forgotten and will be forever in our hearts.
A private service for the family will be held and closed to the public on Saturday, February 13, 2021 at St. George’s on the Hill Anglican Church. The service will be livestreamed and will begin at 10:00 a.m.
