We Remember

FLYNN, Murray McRae

November 27, 1931 — November 19, 2023

It is with great sadness that we announce the loss of Murray McRae Flynn. Who, with his wife by his side, went to be with the Lord (and to be with family and friends who are already there) on November 19, 2023, at the age of 91.

Murray goes to join those who left before him, including his parents, Norman and Christina, and sister, Noreen (Bill) Edwards. Left to treasure his memory are his loving wife of 63 years, Anne; their children Trevor (Wendy) and Deanna (Erv); grandchildren Victoria (Matt), Amy (Cody), Kelsey, Justin (Jen), and Jessica; as well as great-grandchildren Damon and Logan. Also left to mourn, are his nephews and niece, Rick, Murray, and Lori Edwards.

Murray is remembered as a true character, with a gleam in his eye, a smile on his face, and a witty sense of humour. He adored jokes and was always laughing until the end. Murray was a loyal employee of CNR (Canadian National Railway) for 34 years and had a love of fishing, trains, golfing, Western music, and football (particularly his favourite team: the Saskatchewan Rough Riders).

The family would like to give a special thanks to the incredible doctors who were by Murray’s side in his final moments.

A Funeral Service will be held on THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 2023 at 10:00 AM, at Springfield Funeral Home (2020 Springfield Rd, Kelowna, BC), with Father Patrick Monette officiating. There will be a reception to follow. If you are unable to attend in person, please join the family online by Livestream at the time of the service (see below), a recording will be made available to view shortly thereafter.
