It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our brother, Murray Mark Blanchard at the young age of 62. Murray passed away peacefully at his home in Barrie, Ontario surrounded by angels.
Murray worked at Rona in Barrie in the contractor’s department after being self-employed contractor for many years. He was quite the craftsman and had developed an amazing and sought-after talent from a young age. He loved working with his son and taught him this craft that both enjoyed together. Murray loved playing his guitar and passed this love along to his son as well. They loved hanging out and jamming together. Murray is now with his son, the love of his life that left us here in December, 2019.
Murray will be remembered by all his brothers and sisters: Tod (Heather), Kim (Doug Dixon), Lee (Wally Fleury), Lori (Bruce Spragg), Nancy (Harold Guillermo Eusebio), Scott, Grant (Susan) and Tracy (Al Bestard).
Murray is predeceased by his son, Casey M. Blanchard and by his parents Donald Joseph Blanchard and Joyce Cavers Blanchard!
May he find peace, everlasting love with all his heavenly family!
A memorial will be planned later in the Spring with details to follow!
